The best way to explore Lake Como is on a relaxing private cruise. Your first stop is the stunning Villa Balbianello, one of the most striking villas in the world. It cascades down the mountains to the lake’s shore. It was here that one of the Star Wars episodes was filmed, as well as A Month on the Lake, starring Vanessa Redgrave and Uma Thurman. Allied generals were housed at the villa for a spell during World War II. You will have the chance to stop in the delightful village of Bellagio, located on a peninsula in the middle of the lake. The Lake Como area has a long history of silk production, and in Bellagio you may wish to shop for silk scarves and ties. As you depart Bellagio on your private boat, take in spectacular views of the towering Alps to the north.
