About the tour: Splendour of Lake Maggiore for Single Travellers

The perfect place to relax and an ideal centre for touring, enjoy excursion opportunities to Lake Como, Lugano and Orta on this fantastic single traveller holiday, along with the chance to visit the cosmopolitan city of Milan – one to tick off the bucket list!
