Italian sophistication: Milan and the lakes nearby

North of Milan where the Alps are part of the landscape and you can barely distinguish the Italian and Swiss territory, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are an unbeatable pair for anyone who loves elegance, tranquility and beauty. Some miles towards the south you find Milan, a cosmopolitan and sophisticated city. Matching all these destinations is the guarantee of an unforgettable trip!


Lake Maggiore and Lake Como are pure charm.Large villas in belle époque style, gardens that are true masterpieces, colorful buildings and flowers on the balconies build a picturesque panorama.

Besides, the water with many shades of blue (often crystalline!), the islands on the lakes, the surrounding woods and the mountains as frame prove that Nature has been generous. Adding some of Italy mixed with Switzerland and you will feel yourself in an elegant epic movie!


Italian fashion capital and one of the most amazing cities of Europe, Milan is where history, culture, fashion and design make a harmonic combination. Milan will snatch you from the outstanding Duomo to Da Vinci’s Last Supper, strolling in the Fashion Quadrangle among restaurants and caffès – not to mention the bars for a charming aperitif in the late afternoon.
