Itinerary

Description

Italy is home of some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. We discover glorious Lake Garda, with its deep azure waters fringed by pastel-coloured villas and lakeside resorts, and explore this beautiful part of Italy’s wine country with the opportunity to taste and learn about the famous wines made from the grapes grown in the surrounding hillsides.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France.

Day 2
Continue to our hotel in the Lake Garda area.

Day 3 - Scenic Lake Garda
We enjoy a scenic tour around Lake Garda, one of Italy’s most spectacular lakes, admiring the magnificent views and elegant period villas, beautiful towns and villages dotted along its shoreline.

Day 4 - Verona & Soave
We head first to Verona, one of Italy’s oldest cities. Forever associated with Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Verona has much more to offer than the legendary balcony that lovers flock to from all over the world; the ancient Roman amphitheatre and majestic Piazza Brà are just some of the many must-see sights here.  Next is Soave, a small town enclosed by its medieval walls and dominated by its castle. It is also famous for the wines that come from the surrounding vineyards and we enjoy a visit of one of the local wine cellars followed by a tasting of these lovely wines.

Day 5 - Day at leisure

Day 6 - Optional excursion to Venice (£39pp)
Join us for an optional excursion to explore the unique city of Venice. Lining the canals are grand palazzos, many of them dating back to the 14th century, while other attractions include St Mark’s Square, the Bridge of Sighs and of course the gondolas that ply their trade up and down the waterways.


Day 7 - Valdobbiadene & Villa Sandi
We travel to Valdobbiadene, famous as the capital of the sparkling prosecco wine, set in lovely wine-producing countryside. We visit Villa Sandi, a beautiful Palladian-style villa where for generations the ancient tradition of winemaking has been handed down from father to son. After a visit of the villa and underground cellars, we are treated to a chilled glass of prosecco. Afterwards, there’s time at leisure in Valdobbiadene before heading back to our hotel. 

Day 8 - Bardolino
This afternoon we visit Bardolino, located on Lake Garda’s eastern shore. Once a fishing village, this popular resort is well known for the production of the famous Bardolino wine that comes from the surrounding vineyards and we are treated to a visit of the traditional cellars followed by a tasting of wines and local cheeses.

Day 9
Travel to our overnight hotel in France, with a light evening meal included.

Day 10
Continue to Calais for our return ferry home.
