The legendary Grand Tour, an 18th-century excursion that saw wealthy Europeans journey through France and Italy in search of adventure, and Lake Como was an obligatory stop, loved for its warm climate and luminescent atmosphere. Grand Hotel Tremezzo, perched on the edge of the lake itself, is offering guests the chance to embark on their very own illustrious “Grand Tour” with a specially crafted package.

This offer invites guests to experience the majestic beauty of Lake Como and its surrounding landmarks while staying at its historical heart. Explore the quaint villages and elegant villas that line the lake for a romantic voyage of discovery. Neighbouring Grand Hotel Tremezzo, entry is included to what is arguably the most famous villa on the lake, the beautiful Villa Carlotta and its botanical gardens. Alongside both Villa del Balbianello and Villa Melzi, these are impeccable examples of the neoclassical style – not to mention a location in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale.

The best way to explore the lake is by hopping aboard Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s Venetian water limo Ruy, allowing you to not only bask in the natural splendour of Italy’s third-largest lake in style, but also to go back in time and rediscover the excitement of those travellers that lived, visited, wrote, composed, painted and dreamed there, inspired by the surrounding Italian charm.

Facing both Bellagio and the Grigne Mountains, Grand Hotel Tremezzo is blessed with the best location on the lake. With a return ticket to the town of Bellagio included, you’ll fall in love with its picture-perfect waterfront of bobbing boats and maze of hidden streets.

After a long day sightseeing, relax in the comfort of your luxury accommodation. Whether it’s in the newly refurbished Lake View Prestige Rooms, decorated in the delicate colours of renowned Como silks, or one of the exquisite Rooftop Suites that offer breathtaking views across the Riviera delle Azalee from your very own terrace with a heated Jacuzzi, you’ll get a sense of the nostalgic charm of this art nouveau palace that has been a magnet for elite tourism since the Grand Tour.

The Lake Como Grand Tour package includes the following, based on a minimum 3-night stay:

  • Three-night stay in luxury accommodation of your choice
  • Daily buffet breakfast at La Terrazza overlooking the lake
  • Exclusive use of the water limo Ruy for a three-hour tour of Lake Como
  • A return ticket for 2 people on a traditional boat to Bellagio
  • One entry for 2 people at Villa Carlotta and its botanical gardens
  • One entry for 2 people at Villa del Balbianello, including a guided tour
  • One entry for 2 people at Villa Melzi gardens

This offer is subject to availability at the time of reservation and may be prolonged at a favourable rate. Some restrictions may apply. Price dependent on date and accommodation type, with rates starting from €640+10%VAT per night in a Park View Prestige Room.
