Tremezzo Holidays

Perfect for a lakeside stroll

Stretching across the west lake promenade on Lake Como, Tremezzo borders on the resorts of Lenno and Menaggio. Tremezzo is one of Lake Como’s quieter treasures, with a small but beautiful medieval sector of the town with winding cobbled streets and grand 18th and 19th century houses and hotels lined up along the promenade. Nestled under the watchful gaze of Mount Crocione with great views across the lake towards Bellagio, the area of Tremezzo is also known as the Azalea Riviera because of the masses of stunning azaleas and rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias that bring the whole place to life with their vibrant and multicoloured blossoms.

Tremezzo is extremely well linked to other towns across Lake Como with efficient ferry and bus services going to and from your home base.

Como Summer Festival

The Lake Como summer music festival takes place across numerous venues on Lake Como during the summer, including villas and gardens overlooking the water, castles, and some Brianza theatres. The festival celebrates all genres of music, from the classical scores that echo the aristocratic past of the region, through to modern numbers with jazz and pop music in the evenings.

 

Flower, art and flavour Festival

Taking place in Mennagio on the 21st-22nd May 2016, the flower, art and flavour festival is exactly what is says on the tin. The town of Mennagio comes to life with food markets, music in every single available corner of every street, art and beautiful spring flower decorations.

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 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 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.
