Resort Information

Cool in the summer and mild in the winter, Lake Garda is the ideal base from which to explore Italy's north-eastern corner. Our carefully selected hotels offer guests a comfortable stay in a range of resorts.

Malcesine

A town of winding alleyways and cobbled squares, Malcesine sits on Garda's north-eastern shore beneath the protective gaze of its 13th-century castle. A funicular railway takes visitors to the summit of Monte Baldo above the town.

Limone

Sitting on the western shore of Lake Garda, Limone takes its name from the terraced citrus groves that surround it. Against this backdrop, cobbled streets give way to the azure waters of the lake, and lazy sunny days balance bustling nights in the resort's cafes and bars.

Torbole

In the north-eastern corner of Lake Garda, Torbole is our liveliest resort. The town boasts a vibrant cafe culture and a delightful waterfront promenade - an ideal stop to relax and watch as windsurfers skip across the water taking advantage of the area's cooling breeze.

Riva del Garda

One of Garda's most popular destinations, Riva sits at the lake's northern tip. The town boasts a rich history, vibrant pastel-painted houses and a wide selection of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to from the UK to Italy. You'll be met at the airport by our Tour Manager and carried to your hotel by coach. Check in, then relax or head out to explore your surroundings before an evening meal at your hotel.

Day Two

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 Three

Join us as we board 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 evoking east.

The journey back to your hotel is punctuated with a visit to busy Garda and relaxed Bardolino, a local centre for wine making.

Day Four

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

Day Five

Spend today relaxing. Revisit your favourite cafe in the resort, relax at the water's edge or explore farther afield.

Day Six

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 have time to explore or relax in a cafe in the shadow of 2,000 years of architectural splendour on Piazza Bra.

Day Seven

Head into the dramatic mountains north east of Lake Garda, today, for a full day of spectacular sights. See mighty Marmolada and visit Canazei sits in the mountain's shadow. Cross the Sella Pass to Val Galdena, and make the most of each opportunity to take wonderful pictures of some unforgettable views.

Day Eight

Say a fond farewell to your resort, and to the shining waters of Lake Garda, as you transfer to the airport and board your flight home to the UK.
