The Concordia Means Pure Nostalgia and Romance
On board the Concordia, which was built in 1926, you’ll find a bar and a restaurant. In the elegant Art Nouveau salons you can still feel the glamorous touch of the Belle Epoque.
Nothing is more beautiful and more romantic than gliding into the sunset on Lago di Como on a mild summer evening with this comfortable ship.
From the lake, completely new perspectives open up again and again on the majestic mountains, the dreamlike villas and the picturesque towns on the banks. A boat trip on Lake Como is something you will never forget.
Allora amici, I’m already looking forward to my first boat tour in this very special year. Are you coming with me?
Tanti saluti e a presto
