Unique experince just round the corner of Lake Como

This itinerary will let you discover wonderful alpine corners between Lake Como and Switzerland: Valchiavenna and Val Bregaglia. Green mountains and extraordinary waterfalls surround one of the most beautiful palaces of this area from an artistic point of view: Vertemate-Franchi Palace.

Thanks to a private guided tour, you will be able to know its history and appreciate the beauty of its rooms, decorated with frescoes of the 16th century and furnished with precious antiques, and its pleasant gardens.

After the visit we will leave the Italian border for a while to enjoy a unique experience: in an old mountain village we will enjoy local and forgotten flavours surrounded by a timeless atmosphere… you'll have the feeling to be in a tale!
