After your visits on the lake and in the city you can relax in the outdoor area overlooking a beautiful and quiet garden. Just outside the apartment you will find yourself in the pulsating heart of the city, in the narrow streets of the center with shops and restaurants. A few steps from the pier for boats, the railway station for Milan and the airport of Malpensa and Linate. You do not need a car to visit the city but if you arrive with that you can park nearby, the apartment is in fact in the pedestrian area. Upon arrival you will find a complimentary bottle of Italian wine, maps, books on the city and the lake but I will be happy to give you advice to visit the city and the lake.More
