Select Gems Of Lake Garda Venice & Verona
12 Day Select Holiday
On this magnifico tour we stay in the traditional lakeside town of Peschiera del Garda at the Southern end of the shimmering lake whilst enjoying some of the most beautiful and iconic sights in Italy. Our sightseeing itinerary takes us to the prettiest resorts that stud the banks of the lake taking in Malcesine and Sirmione. Then there’s Venice to explore, the romantic city of canals and bridges as well as striking St Mark’s Square. We also spend a day in the legendary city of Verona where you’ll be surrounded by history at every turn from Romanesque and Renaissance monuments to one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Your Holiday Itinerary

Day Three. We travel to Peschiera del Garda and check into the Hotel San Benedetto for our seven night dinner, bed and breakfast stay.
Day Four. We journey to beautiful Malcesine, a town that rises from the sparkling water in a pretty jumble of cobbled streets and little squares. Perhaps visit the striking Castello Scaligero, stroll by the tiny harbour, take a seat in a traditional café or browse the small boutique shops.
Day Five. Venice is our treat today where you’ll find impressive and iconic sights such as St Mark’s Square, the basilica, the Bridge of Sighs and the Ponte Rialto. Perhaps indulge in a dreamy gondola ride, meander through the maze of narrow streets or watch the colourful vessels on Grand Canal.
Days Six & Seven. Two free days to do your own thing. Perhaps walk or take the local bus in to the centre of Peschiera, a typical Italian old town with charming cafés by the harbour and historic alleys to explore.
Day Eight. Another day, another delight as we journey to vivacious Verona, an unspoilt city with the best preserved Roman amphitheatre in the world. Other attractions include the Basilica of St Zeno, the Lamberti Tower and bustling market at Piazza delle Erbe. Be sure to visit “Juliet’s House” on the Via Capello to smile at lovestruck teenage boys photographing their girlfriends on the balcony!
Day Nine. The gems keep coming as we visit achingly beautiful Sirmione, located on the tip of a long peninsula and home to a grand castle as well as the ruins of an ancient Roman villa. This afternoon we also enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Garda.
