Before leaving, the captain will welcome you on board of the helicopter and he will explain all the necessary procedures for the tour.
Our flight starts with an overfly over the Lake Como, also called Lario, where the landscape seems to have been painted by a romantic painter: mountains sliding into the lake, now soft and now restless. Woods, small beaches of white pebbles or soft grass, promontories bathed by placid waters.
Stone villages that are postcards from the Middle Ages. Grand Hotel and fairytale villas, with manicured gardens and aristocratic atmospheres from the Belle Epoque. It is the enchantment of Lario, a lake that has inspired artists and poets of all ages.
The lake, one of the most important in Lombardy, with its characteristic inverted Y shape, winds its way into three branches: Como to the southwest, Lecco to the southeast and Colico to the north.
From its banks you can enjoy multiple and fascinating views: suggestive villages, splendid villas and lush gardens await visitors in search of relaxation and culture in contact with nature.
You will admire the “Volta lighthouse”, a monument that, as the name suggests, a tribute from the city of Como to its most famous fellow citizen Alessandro Vota, inventor of the electric battery. With its 29 meters high, it dominates the Lake Como.
Lake Como is world famous also for its luxurious villas and wonderful gardens: you will see from the sky Villa D’Este.
