Venice, City of Canals
An early start today for the drive to Venice, the ancient and famous city of canals to view St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and much, much more. From the coach park there you will make your way into Venice by private boat. To add to a truly memorable day, your tour manager may also offer an optional guided tour of Venice and optional gondola ride. Full details available locally. (NB: Due to the historic nature of the city, this excursion is not suitable for wheelchair and mobility vehicle users).
Malcesine and Scenic Lake Drive
A scenic drive today as you head north along the lakeside to Malcesine, nestled in the shadow of Monte Baldo. Malcesine is one of the most attractive towns on the whole lake and has, for decades, drawn writers and artists with its picture perfect setting and historic castle. For a spectacular view over Lake Garda there is nothing to beat a ride on the Malcesine cableway (costs not included – approx. €22 full fare return in 2018) which rises to 1600 metres in just ten minutes to the top of Monte Baldo.
Romeo & Juliet's Verona
Journey to the magnificent old city of Verona, famous for Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'. Bordered on three sides by the River Adige, the streets of Verona's ancient centre follow the layout of the Roman city. Upon arrival you may either explore the city on your own or join the optional guided city tour by coach and then on foot. Full details available from your Tour Manager.
Lake Cruise to Sirmione
The most relaxing way to enjoy Lake Garda is by boat and your tour manager will provide full details of a trip to Sirmione, one of Garda’s most popular resorts. Sirmione juts out several miles into the southern waters of the lake on a narrow peninsula of cypress and olive groves.
DAY 8 - It’s farewell to Lake Garda today as you head northwards to your final overnight hotel. Bed and Breakfast.
DAY 9: After breakfast, continue to Calais for the return crossing to England.Back to top
