LAGO DI COMO
Begin your week in Italy touring iconic Lake Como and the towns of Bellagio, Varenna and Lecco by boat, bike, and on foot. You’ll spend three nights at CASA SULL'ALBERO, the “design & boutique hotel” of Lake Como. You’ll enjoy cycling through Bellagio the local vineyards, and capture breathtaking views of the lake and landscape. Enjoy dinner al fresco lakeside at the hotel after your second day of exploring the lake by boat.
ALPS + BAROLO
We leave the lake and head straight to the Alps outside Torino. There you’ll meet local experts for a hike in the Alps near the border of France. the day is quite extraordinary and completely surreal. The views, mountain air, water, and experience cannot be described with words. Choose one of two hike options to best fit your mood and comfort level. Lunch will be on the mountain - after the hike we will stop by a cheese shop that has the best mozzarella cheese - EVER. A quick drive will lead you to the village of Barolo for dinner at a local vineyard and an overnight stay. The area is filled with castles and vineyards. It’s truly amazing.
The Italian Coast is dotted with small villages and towns that are best accessed by train and foot. You’ll spend two nights in the Cinque Terre, a collection of five villages on the coast. You’ll travel from town to town by foot or train, enjoy cool dips in the ocean, local cuisine, and of course see things that seem unreal. Bring a good camera, the photo opportunities are endless.
CHIANTI + FLORENCE
Tuscany is filled with incredible villages, and a personal favorite is Siena and a winery in Chianti. We spend a day on bike through Chianti or if you prefer we can arrange transportation by vespa or car. Our adventure ends with an immersive cooking class, or if you prefer to spend the day exploring Florence the option is yours.
