The charms of Northern Italy

Two of Europe's most enthralling and historic cities are brought thrillingly to life on this ever-popular escorted holiday. Experience the magic of Venice, discover the treasures of Verona, enjoy the serenity of Lake Garda's colourful shores and gaze in awe at the craggy heights of the Dolomites.

Resort Information

Equally favoured by mild winds in the winter and cooling breezes in the summer, Lake Garda provides a perfect backdrop for enjoyable holidays. Each of our hotels offers a base from which to enjoy the beauty of the lake and the excursion programme.

Malcesine

On the north-eastern shore, Malcesine - like its quieter neighbours Assenza di Brenzone and Castelletto di Brenzone - boasts a delightful mix of twisting alleyways and bustling, flower-strewn squares. Visit the 13th-century castle, or take the funicular ride to the summit of Monte Baldo.

Limone

Delightful Limone, on the lake's western shore, is named for the terraced citrus groves on the surrounding hills. Colourful and bustling, with cobbled streets leading down to the lakeside, Limone is a perfect holiday resort, with an energetic nightlife to complement the relaxed, sun-blessed days.

Torbole

The liveliest of our resorts, Torbole, also on Lake Garda's north-eastern shore, offers a vibrant cafe life and a lakeside promenade, from where, most afternoons, the windsurfing enthusiasts skimming across the water are a colourful sight.

Riva del Garda

Famous Riva, at Lake Garda's northern tip, has a busy historic centre surrounded by elegant, pastel-painted buildings. A good selection of cafes, gelaterie, bars, restaurants and shops make it one of the lake's most popular spots.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly from the UK to Italy, meet your Tour Manager at the airport, and transfer by coach to your hotel in Lake Garda.

Day Two

Relax and explore your hotel and its surroundings, today. Our resorts have much to offer - stroll the lakeside promenades, shop, watch the world go by from a pavement cafe or perhaps take to the waters of the lake itself.

Day Three

Our Grand Circular Tour of Lake Garda, by boat and coach, is the perfect way to enjoy the region's marvellous scenery and to explore some of the delightful lakeside resorts. From the fjord-like eastern shores and the northern mountains to the western shoreline of citrus and olive groves, each section of the shoreline has its own distinctive charm and allure.

After a day of discovery and freqent stops to explore, we'll return to the hotel via the wine-growing town of Bardolino and the busy resort of Garda itself.

Day Four

Venice, which we'll visit today, is one of the world's most beautiful cities. With its mysterious labyrinth of alleys and waterways, spectacular St Mark's Square and Cathedral, the bell tower, the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge and the mystique of the Palace of Prisons and the Bridge of Sighs, Venice has to be seen to be believed.

Day Five

Spend another day relaxing and enjoying the facilities at your hotel and exploring the resort.

Day Six

Today we'll discover "fair Verona" on the banks of the River Adige, the historic backdrop for the tragic tale of "Juliet and her Romeo" and home to the famous opera season held yearly in its Roman amphitheatre. Explore this fascinating place, then take a seat in an open-air cafe in Piazza Bra to watch the world go by.

Day Seven

Join us for a full-day sightseeing tour through the crags and passes of some of Europe's most dramatic mountain scenery. Our journey includes Canazei, below towering Marmolada, a crossing of the Sella Pass into picturesque Val Galdena, and you'll be able to take in the panoramic views during our many stops along the way.

Day Eight

It's "Arrivederci, Lago di Garda", today, as you board the coach and transfer back to the airport to check in for your flight back to the UK.

Since some attractions visited offer free admission to visitors at certain times of year, we do not include entrance fees. These will be payable locally where applicable. This applies to excursions that are included in the price of your holiday and to excursions booked as optional extras.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel.
