FULL DESCRIPTION

Take a private cruise in an open top Venetian taxi and relax while cruising up the western branch of the lake, admiring the spectacular mountains and the stunning villas, once the homes of aristocrats, now the playgrounds for the jet set. Disembark at Villa del Balbianello for a guided visit to the stunning shooting location for a number of famous films such as “Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones” and “Casino Royale.” As an alternative, you may choose to visit Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, which has stunning gardens, but note that the choice will need to be made at least one day in advance. After visiting the villa and its gardens, cruise onwards to Bellagio, called the "Pearl of the Lake." Here you will stop for lunch at a restaurant of your choice (your tour guide would be happy to give you the best suggestions). After lunch, visit the town of Bellagio and the gardens of the Villa Melzi, adorned with classical statues and rare, exotic plants- in May, the azaleas are justly celebrated. After some time in Bellagio and perhaps some shopping, your private water taxi will pick you up at 1700 to bring you back to the departure location. A friendly and professional English speaking tour guide will accompany you the whole day, giving you all the information you need and some useful suggestions. Lunch not included, but are happy to suggest a restaurant and make reservations.
