We enjoy a three lake tour today. First, we head up the scenic west coast of Lake Maggiore with a coffee stop in Locarno, just over the Swiss border. From here we continue to the stylish city of Lugano and enjoy free time for lunch on the shores of this elegant lake. In the afternoon, we return to Italy and arrive on renowned Lake Como. There’s time to explore the attractive streets of Como itself before we make our way back to Stresa.
