Enjoy a leisurely stroll past exquisite lakeside villas and gardens before meeting your travel companions and Travel Director for a Welcome Reception. Tonight, you'll stay at one of Trafalgar's Stays With Stories and a Lake Como institution, frequented by local aristocrats since the late 19th-century.

Then it's on to St. Mark's Square to admire the profound beauty of the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica.

Service
The person that helped with our planning and scheduling was great. Only once was the ball dropped and it was a minor item. We had asked to have help with a side trip to my husbands grandparent's town. She assured us that our travel guide would be made aware of what we wanted to do. On the first night of our trip, we talked to our guide and she didn't know anything about it. She was great though and was able to pull it together for us.
Vacation
Pricey, but everything was taken care of. Well worth it!
