    For instance, while we’re away, we’ll get the chance to take an optional ride on the Bernina Railway, as well as visiting the lovely San Moritz. This will allow us to admire the stunning vistas as we travel through the alpine scenery. 

    Following this, we’ll take a relaxing lake cruise and will visit Villa del Balbianello, which overlooks Lake Como and dates from the late 1700s. Finally, we’ll take a trip to the nearby Lake Maggiore, which is just as impressive as Lake Como and provides yet more dazzling landscapes to enjoy. 

    We’ll be staying at the Hotel Britannia Excelsior during our holiday, where we’ll be just a short distance from all of these attractions and more, so we can look forward to a fantastic holiday.

    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS



    For half a day, we’ll explore the Villa del Balbianello, which features amazing landscaped gardens and wonderful views out over the lake. Work on the villa originally began in 1787 in order to create a home in which Cardinal Durini could enjoy literature and the arts to his heart’s content, and he certainly managed to create a property which inspires creativity.

    With such grand views and splendid architecture, it’s easy to see why this villa is still so popular today. The interiors of the villa are filled with period furnishings and magnificent works of art that makes it even more excellent, and each of the rooms is devoted to art from the different country. China, France, England, Columbia and many other countries are perfectly represented at the Villa del Balbianello.

    As well as visiting the villa, we’ll also enjoy a short cruise on Lake Como, which will allow us to admire the views from a different perspective, as well as enjoying the sight of the villa rising up above the lake.
