Itinerary

Day 1

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

Day 2

Stroll by the lake, watch the world go by from a cafe, discover your resort's shops and boutiques or simply relax in the comfort of your hotel.

Day 3

Join us aboard boat and coach for a Grand Circular Tour of Lake Garda. The perfect way to take in the area's exceptional scenery, the tour offers an insight into the many faces of lake life - the mountains of the northern shore, the citrus and olive groves of the west and the fjord-like east.

On the journey back to your hotel, you'll visit Garda itself and Bardolino - a name you'll probably recognise for its famous red wine.

Day 4

Head into the dramatic Dolomite Mountains north east of Lake Garda today. This full-day trip includes visits to towering Marmolada and Canazei in the mountain's shadow, Val Rendena, the huge Adamello Glacier, the Brenta Dolomites and pretty Val di Genova. Make sure you take the optional cable-car ride - the views are absolutely outstanding.

Day 5

Spend a day relaxing at your hotel and in the resort. Revisit your favourite cafe, relax at the water's edge or explore further afield.

Day 6

Discover "fair Verona" on the banks of the Adige, now the eternal home of one of the literary world's most tragic love stories. In this captivating city you'll visit the Roman amphitheatre (venue for Verona's famous annual opera season), and have time to explore or to relax in a cafe on Piazza Bra, in the shadow of 2000 years of splendid architecture.

Day 7

Discover the water-city - Venice. Wander the city's maze-like alleys and take a short boat ride on its network of waterways. Gaze across St Mark's Square to its magnificent basilica and bell tower, and see the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge, the Palace of Prisons and the Bridge of Sighs.

Day 8

Say a fond farewell to your resort, and to the shining waters of Lake Garda, as you return to the airport and check in for your flight home at the end of your Lake Garda, Venice and Verona experience.

N.B. The itinerary above is based on a Wednesday arrival. For Sunday arrivals, the excursions will be offered on the following days: Day Two - Verona, Day Three - Venice, Day Six - Lake Tour, Day Seven – Dolomites. Back to top

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time to Lake Garda is approximately three hours from Milan and Venice airports, and one hour from Verona Airport.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Entrance fees

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. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Meals in Italy

Guests on half-board arrangements will be served a three-course evening meal, and can expect a first course of traditional pasta or soup, a main meat or fish course accompanied by one or two types of vegetable, and a simple dessert of fruit, cake or Italian ice cream. Breakfasts will usually consist of bread rolls, jam, cereal, ham, cheese, fruit juice, tea and coffee. Menus will vary from hotel to hotel, but choice will be more limited than in a normal restaurant. In some instances, individual guests who have booked with the hotel independently may be offered a different menu from those who are staying at the hotel as part of a package tour.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Italian hotel room tax

Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of between 1 € and 3 € per person per night, payable directly by the guest to the hotel on check-out. You will be advised by your tour manager in resort if a particular hotel is implementing this charge.
