Italy and Switzerland in One Day: Lake Como, Bellagio & Lugano from Milan

420 reviews
See two of Europe’s most picturesque lakes—Como in Italy and Lugano in Switzerland—on one day trip from Milan. Cruise Lake Como, and have free time to explore pretty lakeside towns on either side of the Swiss-Italian border. Travel by bus and ferry along the way instead of stressing about driving and navigation. Hear commentary about Como, learning more about the area than you would on your own.

Maybe the best place to overlook the whole of the lake. You can drive there, but very little chance to park - so you better walk.

This view point is a short walk from when you arrive to Bellagio by Ferry. Just turn left when you get off and follow the signs or the crowd. There is a small garden area and a restaurant. The views here, especially on a sunny day are fantastic. You simply have to come here.

Viewpoint at the top of Lake Como. A breathtaking panoramic view that allows you to see the two arms of Lake Como. A short walk from the center of the town. A small green area in front where you can rest on the benches or on the grass. You can see both legs of Lake Como, Varenna side and Mennagio side. Worth the time to view the beautiful mountains in the distance overlooking beautiful Lake Como.

After many decades, I went back to Punta Spartivento (= "cape of split wind") on a cold but clear winter day. The walk on foot from the pier is short, but it is closed between the fences of the villas, so that the unsuspecting traveler is suddenly displaced in the exciting view on this extreme northern end of Bellagio, overlooking the center of the lake, at the widest point - almost "on maritime way" wide - of the lake itself. Here is the peculiarity of Bellagio, which founded its fame, as it makes it so different from other, albeit beautiful, coastal locations: looking out over the three "horns" that make up the lake itself. Certainly going up on the hills behind the town you will discover other even more fascinating views; but this can be reached with an almost flat path, therefore within everyone's reach. Reading the geological history of the lake, I found that the straight ideal line that connects Bellagio to Varenna (on Eastern shore) was in the remote period occupied by a mountainous relief, and that the once huge glacier giving rise to Lake Como had to carry out excavation work and destruction of this relief, to continue its furrow towards the Lecco branch. This phenomenon - now readable only by an expert eye - helps to explain what the viewer may seem to be an "indecision" of the glacier: digging west towards Como, or south towards Lecco? In reality - as far as I understand - it isn't indecision, but erosive actions that have unfolded in consecutive periods. And this founds the exceptional shape of Lake Como among the Italian lakes (and not only them).
