Visit the breath-taking Cinque Terre and explore its colourful, vibrant villages
The elegant Grand Hotel Tremezzo offers spectacular views over Lake Como and pretty Bellagio
April, May, September and October are the best months to visit the Italian Lakes and Portofino for warm weather and to avoid the mid summer crowds. July and August are the Italian tourist high season, so the lakes can become quite busy but are still very beautiful with hot days and balmy evenings.
Explore beautiful northern Italy, starting at the iconic Lake Como and ending on the glamorous Italian Riviera. From the elegant towns of Lake Como to the colourful villages of Cinque Terre, this itinerary showcases the highlights of the romantic north.
Start your scenic journey at the elegant Grand Hotel Tremezzo, an iconic Belle Epoque palace boasting a prime lakeside position and a unique floating pool. The hotel rises majestically above the lake and commands unparalleled views across the water to the twinkling lights of Bellagio. Dubbed the Pearl of the Lake, in this charming town you can wander through cobbled streets and up ancient stone staircases, taking in the fabulous views across the mirror-like water.
Enjoy a serene private cruise, stopping at pretty lakeside villages such as Menaggio and Varenna to explore the narrow winding streets and sample some local delicacies. Close to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, the impressive architecture and stunning botanic gardens of Villa Carlotta are well worth exploring.
After spending four nights in glamorous Lake Como, continue your northern Italian adventure on the coast, in one of the Italian Riviera's most beautiful towns. The stylish Belmond Hotel Splendido overlooks Portofino's picturesque yacht-lined harbour and brings a sense of old world glamour to the town. Spend your three nights here admiring the charming pastel-coloured buildings, and venture further afield to the vibrant coastal villages of the Cinque Terre. This impressive stretch of coastline is home to a collection of five villages - Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore - famous for their vibrant, colourful houses. Explore the region with a knowledgeable private guide, or we can arrange a private boat to take you to one of the iconic towns for a truly special experience.
During your time in Portofino, if you're looking for a unique activity, try kayaking around the Riviera coastline, or simply laze away warm days by the turquoise seas, soaking up the incredible ambience in this enchanting town.
