Start your visit from Como: you can walk around the city and visit the cathedral, Piazza Verdi and several monuments. From Como you can also take a boat that navigates the lake and stop in the beautiful villages of Bellagio e Tremezzo, where you will find Villa Carlotta with its famous gardens which are home for more than 500 botanical species.

Moving south, you can visit the small city of Cremona. Visit the Torre Campanaria (112 meters tall): from the top you’ll get the best view of the city and its surrounding. Pay a visit to the Museo Stradivariano and discover the fascinating world of the most famous Italian violin makers and their creations.

MilanReady to go to Milan? The city is the second most visited cities of Italy. It’s the perfect city for people with the most diverse interest: you can enjoy historic buildings, participate in cultural events, go shopping… and have an aperitivo! With this world Italians define a social habit that is now well spread but originated in Milan: what you have to do is go to a bar, usually from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and have a cocktail or a drink that will come with really nice finger food. Can you think of a better way of directly experiencing the “Italian lifestyle”?
