Board our coach, and head out to discover lovely Lake Garda and its spectacular surroundings. From the steep hills to east, the craggy Dolomites to the north, its western vineyards and tree-lined south, the lake's shores are provide a beautiful, varying backdrop for a host of attractive resorts, some of which you'll explore on today's included tour.
Spend the day relaxing and enjoy the hotel's facilities today, or join our optional excursion to "fair Verona". Explore this historic backdrop for the tragic tale of "Juliet and her Romeo", and home to the famous opera season held yearly in its Roman amphitheatre and bustling, cafe-lined Piazza Bra.
Today we leave Limone and head into the Dolomites, a beautiful region of jagged peaks and green meadows dotted with Alpine villages. The leisurely day will include a stop at Bolzano, famed for its local wine. In the afternoon you'll cross into Austria, heading to Fugen and your second hotel.
Our next included excursion is to the Imperial city of Innsbruck. After a chance to see the the imposing Wilten Monastery, we'll enter Innsbruck through the historic triumphal arch. Our guided tour will reveal the historic old town, the elegant main street and the famous copper-tiled 'Golden Roof' built for Emperor Maximillian I.
On our final included excursion you'll discover Salzburg. The birthplace of Mozart is also forever associated with 'The Sound of Music', and you'll travel through the Alpine scenery so familiar from the film to this city that nestles beneath the imposing Hohensalzburg Castle.
Our final full day in the Tyrol gives you the chance to rest and relax, or join our last optional excursion and leave behind the green valleys, heading for the frozen heights of the Hintertux Glacier to take a journey on the Tuxer Fernerhaus gondola through the stunning landscape to a wilderness of ice and snow.
Bid "auf wiedersehen" to the Tyrol, as we board the coach for our journey to the airport to catch our flight home at the end of a truly memorable holiday.

On arrival the transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour from Verona, two hours from Milan Bergamo and three hours from Milan Malpensa. On departure the transfer time from the hotel to Munich airport is approximately two hours and to Verona airport three hours and 45 minutes.
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.
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.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
Changes to your hotels
Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.
Italian hotel room tax
Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of between 1 EURO and 3 EURO 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.
Airport development fees
An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.
