Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Perched on the shores of Lake Como, the Hotel Lenno is nestled in the quaint and peaceful town of Lenno itself. Run lovingly by the Cetti family, the Hotel Lenno is home to an ethos of rest and relaxation as well as spectacular regional cuisine. 

Rooms are simple and comfortably furnished, offering superb value for money on one of Italy's most affluent lakes. The interior decor is one of Art Nouveau with touches of gold filigree, antique furniture and abstract art adorning the walls which lends itself to the gorgeous belle époque exterior overlooking the cyan waters of Lake Como.  There is a fantastic restaurant onsite open to both the public and guests staying on a half board basis. Dishes here are influenced by both traditional and regional cuisine as well as fusion cooking which results in some fantastic creations such as swordfish risotto with wasabi ice cream and Buckwheat spaghetti with courgette flower team and sauteed king prawns. 

The bright and airy sun terrace at Hotel Lenno overlooks the lake and offers guests free use of sun loungers and parasols which are scattered around the large swimming pool open from mid-May until September. There is also a sauna in the hotel's main building which is the ideal spot to relax and rest your feet after a day exploring the town of Lenno as well as its equally gorgeous neighbouring resorts, Moltrasio and Tremezzo

Lenno

This small, tranquil village is based around a little horseshoe bay looking across to the village of Bellagio. It has a lovely selection of restaurants and cafés where you can pause for a drink whilst admiring the spectacular views. Nearby is Azzano, where Benito Mussolini and his mistress Claretta Petacci were shot dead in 1945. Lenno boasts a fabulous market on a Tuesday morning, probably the best on the lake, selling local produce as well as souvenirs, leather and clothes. There is also an unspoilt pebble beach for swimming and an artificial sandy beach at Lido di Lenno.

PRE-BOOKABLE

St. Moritz £51, full day, Monday

This full day excursion to St Moritz includes the famous Bernina Express train from Poschiavo and takes you through breathtaking scenery.By coach we take you up the northern arm of the lake, and into the majestic Val Valtellina, one of the great valleys of the eastern Alps and producer of the area’s splendid wines, meats and cheeses. Our first stop, for coffee, is at the small town of Tirano with its notable cathedral.

We then proceed to Poschiavo for the highlight of the day: a spectacular ride on the Bernina Express, past glaciers, over dramatic gorges and viaducts, as far as Diavolezza, covering the highest part of the journey which climbs the steepest gradients in the world (of up to 70%) without the use of cog wheels.

It is then a short and scenic journey on to St Moritz itself, where you have free time to take in the stunning views over the crystal lake, explore and admire the shops and to have lunch.

Our descent, by coach, is no less dramatic. We take the unforgettable road down through the Maloja pass, with extraordinary vistas offered at every moment. The final stop is back in Italy, at the charming, historic town of Chiavenna, the ‘key’ of Italy, where you can explore the town’s attractive, cobbled streets and shops.

Bergamo £48, ¾ day, Thursday

The city of Bergamo Alta has been described as the prettiest open-air museum in the world . Birthplace of the opera writer, Gaetano Donizetti, this sophisticated and stunning small town contains no building newer than the seventeenth century. The cobbled streets contain medieval towers and wonderful views at every turn, and the main piazza is one of the most beautiful in all Italy.

We start our excursion from the picture-postcard, historic village of Varenna, on the eastern shore of Lake Como. Cost of ferry ticket to pick up point not included. (approx €8 return). We then travel by coach along the scenic eastern shore of the lake to the town of Lecco and on past mountain scenery to Bergamo.

You will then have free time for lunch and to explore the town. Bergamo is well known for its meats, cheeses, wines and specialities, both savoury and sweet. You may wish to make your way to a scenic viewing point or visit one of the excellent museums. Or you may simply wish to browse the smart shops and picturesque streets.

In the afternoon we join our expert city guide for an interesting and entertaining tour around some of the streets and monuments, including the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the greatest churches in northern Italy, and the chapel of the great condottiere, Bartolomeo Colleoni, which adjoins it.

Milan £48, full day, Tuesday

Taking the panoramic road along Lake Como’s ‘arm of gold’, skirting past Como, we stop for a coffee-break outside Milan. En route you will receive general instructions about the city and a map, before starting the tour with an expert guide who will first take you around the extraordinary Renaissance Castello Sforzesco, one of Milan's great monuments which was once Europe's greatest fortress.

Then enjoy many of the sights, ancient and modern, from the comfort of the bus, with a full live commentary from our expert guide, until you arrive at La Scala, the world’s most famous opera house. You will then be treated to an entertaining and informative guided tour of the historic centre of Milan, making your way from La Scala through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, to the Cathedral itself. The awe-inspiring Duomo, the third-largest in the world, has the largest stained glass of any cathedral and yet has an ethereal quality conjured up by the pink-veined Candoglia marble and the intricate details of its façade and roof.

Then you are free to enjoy the afternoon you wish. Whether you would like to take the chance to visit one of Milan’s renowned art galleries or museums, including La Scala Museum, sample the designer shops, department stores, enjoy the unrivaled views from the top of the Duomo, or simply enjoy exploring the elegant streets, or the lovely Brera district, full of charming bars, cafes and the site of the famous Brera Art gallery, you will find all these options within a few minutes’ walk.

Stresa and Lake Orta £52, full day, Friday

Lake Orta, only twelve kilometres in length, has been described as the most romantic of all the Italian lakes. It inspired Browning and captured Nietzsche's heart.

We first visit the lake’s enchanting town of Orta San Julio, set on a garden peninsular and overlooking the island of San Giulio. Orta’s streets are too narrow for cars so it makes exploring the cobbled streets a breeze, lined with shops, bars and restaurants and ancient buildings. All streets lead to the handsome Piazza Motta which offers a stunning views over to the island of San Giulio.

Lake Maggiore is a majestic, blue lake and the second largest of the Italian lakes, at 65 km in length. We visit Stresa, the ‘Pearl of Verbano, and Maggiore’s most beautiful town, at the foot of imposing Monte Mottarone, which has a cable-car running to its peak (4.920 ft). The town, which has a charming piazza and large number of shops and bars, hosts a famous series of concerts from the end of August to the end of September. The lakeside promenade is celebrated for its lush vegetation and flowers, including oleanders, mimosa and azaleas.

Included in the price of the tour, is a visit to the Isola Bella by private boat (entrance to the Palazzo Borromeo and its gardens at additional cost). The gardens were inspired by the ‘hanging gardens of Babylon’ and Count Borromeo fashioned them into the shape of a ship for his wife, Isabella, giving the island its name. The palace houses a fine collection of art.
