A great-value getaway!
Don't miss your chance to enjoy great late savings on normal prices on this very special offer. Spend a week relaxing by the sun-blessed shores of Italy's most beautiful lake, and join our programme of optional excursions, on an 'Allocated on Arrival' package where you simply select a 'star-rating' category and we choose a hotel for you.
With its clear, blue waters backed by the wooded slopes of craggy mountains and fringed by stylish, elegant resorts, Lake Garda has drawn and captivated visitors for over 100 years. Equally favoured by mild winds in the winter and cooling breezes in the summer, this sparkling Italian lake provides a perfect backdrop for enjoyable holidays.
Fly from your selected airport to Italy and transfer to your allocated hotel on Lake Garda.
Spend the days relaxing at the hotel, or head out to explore Lake Garda and the surrounding area. Alternatively, join one or more of our great-value optional excursions, which give you the opportunity to discover some of the region's treasures. Choose from:
Days Two to Seven
A Grand Circular Tour of Lake Garda by coach and steamer
A full-day visit to incomparable Venice
A half-day visit to Shakespeare's Verona
A full-day tour of the stunning Dolomite Mountains
Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.
The transfer time to Lake Garda is approximately three hours from Milan and Venice airports, and one hour from Verona Airport.
Hotel transfer times
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.
Combining hotel transfers
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.
Meals in Italy
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.
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.
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.
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.
Italian hotel room tax
