Say hello to travelling solo by coach and join us as we combine the beautiful lakeside scenery of two of Italy’s most stunning lakes with an amazing Alpine experience and a visit to Switzerland. From our base on the shores of Lake Como, we offer many fabulous excursions. See the opulent resort of Stresa on Lake Maggiore, join a boat trip passing the Borromean Islands and experience lovely Lugano, as we cross the border into Switzerland. With the added opportunity to visit fashionable St. Moritz and board the Bernina Region Railway for a spectacular journey filled with breath-taking scenery, you’ll return home from this All-Inclusive Single Traveller holiday to Italy with nothing but magical memories.


Day 1

For your convenience, you may choose to start this tour in the UK or at the first city in Europe.

Day 2

We arrive in the beautiful lakeside resort of Cadenabbia or Tremezzo on Lake Como where we stay for the next four nights on a 'Silver' All-Inclusive basis. The rest of the day is at leisure for you to relax and begin your explorations of the area.

Included meals: Dinner

Day 3: Lugano

Today our included excursion takes us over the border into Switzerland and the beautiful lakeside town of Lugano. Lugano lies in a bay on the northern side of Lake Lugano and is surrounded by Monte Bre and Monte Salvatore offering a breathtaking backdrop. The town centre boasts Mediterranean-style squares and arcades for you to explore and by the lakeside promenade are the beautiful Belvedere Gardens. Be sure to visit Via Nassa, one of town’s historical streets and Lugano’s number one shopping destination. Its elegant and sophisticated atmosphere is not to be missed.

Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 4: Lake Maggiore and Lake Cruise

Today on our included excursion we first visit Arona, where you will have time at leisure to enjoy the grand architecture and cosmopolitan atmosphere. We continue to Lake Maggiore and the resort of Baveno.

Here we take a short boat ride on the lake which takes us to the opulent resort town of Stresa. We sail past the beautiful Borromean Islands, which lie at the centre of the lake and are fine examples of natural beauty enhanced by landscaped gardens and parks.

Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 5: Free time or St. Moritz and Bernina Region Railway

Today, for those passengers who have pre-booked, our optional excursion takes you to the world famous resort of St. Moritz. Sporting life has always been an important part of St Moritz, and over 100 years ago the first British visitors used to stage toboggan races in the streets.

There will be a short amount of time for you to explore before we board the Bernina Region Railway and cross one of the highest railroad lines in the Alps. As we approach the Swiss / Italian border, we travel over the Brusio spiral viaduct, an amazing feat of engineering that allows the train to gradually descend 20 metres in a relatively short distance.

We arrive in Tirano, a quaint Italian town, where we spend a short amount of free time before returning to our hotel.
Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 6

Free time before we say goodbye to Italy and commence our overnight journey north crossing Switzerland and into France.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day 7

If you are leaving the tour in Europe, you will say farewell to the group after breakfast this morning. If you joined the tour in the UK, today you will return and continue to your original joining point.
