Full description
Enjoy a convenient pickup from anywhere within 30 kilometers of Como in a luxury air-conditioned minivan. After a brief introduction, begin the 1-hour journey to Lago Maggiore, one of the largest lakes in Italy.  Discover scenic Lago Maggiore, known for its stunning Alpine backdrop and elegant lakefront promenades. Explore the charming village of Stresa located on the shores of the lake. After a short stroll in Stresa, embark on a tour of the Borromean Islands, hopping off at one or all three of the tiny island towns of Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori, and Isola Madre. Enjoy some time to break for lunch on any of the three islands, at your own expense. After lunch, meet your driver once again and cross the border from Italy into Switzerland. Stop in the town of Mendrisio where there are two major attractions. Choose between some of the best shopping deals in Europe at the world-class luxury brand outlet center Foxtown, or try your luck at the casino.
