Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK/Verona
  • ​Depart on your scheduled flight to Verona today. On arrival, we will transfer you to your hotel in the heart of the charming medieval town of Arco, located to the north of Lake Garda.
  • DAY 2 Sirmione & Lazise
  • After breakfast, join your Tour Manager for an included excursion to the historic town of Sirmione. One of the most popular resorts on the shores of Lake Garda, it is dominated by a 13th century castle and is home to some impressive Roman ruins. We'll also visit medieval Lazise, a picturesque town with imposing walls dating back to the 14th century.  
  • DAY 3 Trento & the Brenta Dolomites
  • You're free to do just as you please in Arco today. Alternatively, you could choose to join an optional guided tour of Trento. This lovely town boasts a dramatic mountain setting and is surrounded by the southern part of the Alps and the Dolomites. You'll have time for a spot of shopping at the market before we head to Lake Molveno, at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites. Here you can take a stroll around the Old Town, where you'll find a selection of cafés, restaurants and shops. 
  • DAY 4 Garda Island & Limone
  • Enjoy another day at leisure in Arco, or join our optional cruise to Garda Island, the largest island on the lake. We'll step ashore and take a tour of the Venetian neo-gothic Villa Borghese Cavazza, whose beautiful Italian gardens tumble down to the water's edge. Afterwards you'll head back to Arco, stopping in the popular resort of Limone on the way. Located at the mountainous northern end of Lake Garda, this town was once renowned for its lemon groves.
  • DAY 5 Bolzano & the Renon high plateau
  • Today we're heading to Bolzano, the capital of the South Tyrol and gateway to the Dolomites. A guided tour will introduce you to the city's sights and you'll take in some exceptional views, so be sure to have your camera at the ready. Next we'll travel to Oberbozen and board a train for the panoramic journey to Collalbo. Located in the Renon high plateau, more spectacular views are on offer as you discover the earth pyramids – a bizarre natural landscape of clay and rock spires.
  • DAY 6 Lake Tenno & Toblino
  • Your day begins with a scenic drive to the medieval hamlet of Canale and onwards to Lake Tenno. We'll admire the turquoise waters of this tranquil lake, which is surrounded by a terraced landscape of olive groves, vineyards and chestnut forests. Our next stop is Fiave, in the rural valley of Lomaso, and then it's on to Toblino. A tasting of local wines, meat and cheeses awaits us here, and then we'll take a gentle stroll around the shores of the lake. A scenic highlight is the imposing Toblino Castle, which rises out of the water.
  • DAY 7 Arco
  • ​It's the final day of your holiday, and how you spend it is entirely up to you. You could choose to explore Arco's picturesque Old Town or perhaps visit the 15th century Sanctuary of Our Lady of Grace.
  • DAY 8 Verona/UK
  • ​Your holiday comes to an end today and we will transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
