Discover the charm of Como and then enjoy a wine tasting experience!
A 3 hours tour that combines the visit of the historical centre of Como with a final relaxing wine tasting in a typical local bar. In Como we'll see the highlights (Cathedral, piazza Volta, piazza Cavour, the Sociale theatre, the architecture masterpiece "Casa del Fascio", via Vittani, San Fedele, Porta Torre and the ancient walls, the lakeside promenade) with a walking tour of 2/ 2. 5 hours. The city of Como is charming and has many stories to tell: you'll be fascinated with the history of how the electrical battery was invented here, the tradition of silk weaving and intrigued by the mystery of the two statues on the Cathedral. Founded more than 2000 years ago, Como is rich in art masterpieces.
Once your desire to explore Como will be satisfied, we'll sit and relax in an "enoteca" for a wine tasting: 3 different qualities of wine (sparkling, white or red, as you wish) will be served together with some cold cuts, appetizers or a selection of cheeses from the area. It'll be possible to buy some bottles!
