The best way to explore Lake Como is on a relaxing private cruise. On this trip, your first stop is the stunning 17th-century Villa Carlotta, with its extensive gardens of great historical and environmental value. In 1843 the villa was gifted by the Princess of Nassau to her daughter, Carlotta, as a wedding present. The gardens are worth a visit in every season: unusual varieties of camellias, century-old cedars and sequoias, huge planes and tropical plants, the rock garden, and the rhododendrons are just some of the highlights. Afterwards, enjoy a 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 here 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.
