A dream-like Italian holiday

Stay on the sun-kissed shores of Lake Garda, Italy's largest and most spectacular lake.

  • Take the opportunity to explore the city of Verona, the setting that inspired Romeo and Juliet
  • Choose to journey through the dramatic Dolomites, on an optional excursion

  • The services of a friendly, experienced resort-based Manager

Board arrangements at some of our hotels include a special free-drinks package. See hotel information for full details.

Single rooms are available for a supplement

Must try: Carne salada. Seasoned and lightly cured beef, sliced thin and served raw or quickly grilled, is one of the regional specialities from Lake Garda's north.

Fascinating fact: The James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, starred Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko and several of the pretty towns bordering Lake Garda. The film's dramatic opening sequence was filmed with Alfa 159s chasing Bond's Aston Martin along the SS45 shoreline road and into the tunnels near Limone.

You say: "I stayed in Limone, which was very beautiful, as was the whole area around Lake Garda. The day trips were well organised and made all the more enjoyable by our tour manager."

Your Base: Lake Garda Hotels In Limone, Malcesine, Riva del Garda Or Torbole

Lake Garda is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, and each of the hotels in our elegant, stylish resorts has been selected to reveal the very best that the lake has to offer.

Limone

Named for the hillside terraces of citrus groves that surround it, Limone is a bustling resort on Lake Garda's western shore. Here, cobbled streets lead down to the lake and the lively nightlife offers a delightful counterpoint to relaxed, sunny days.

Malcesine

Malcesine's pretty labyrinth of narrow lanes and squares nestles on Lake Garda's north-eastern shore beneath green-sloped Mount Baldo. A cable car runs from the town to the summit, and there's also a 13th-century castle to explore.

Riva del Garda

At the northernmost tip of the Lake, Riva is one of Garda's most popular resorts. The town boasts excellent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants nestled among its pastel-painted buildings, medieval architecture and lakeside piazzas.

Torbole

East of Riva, Torbole is set in a natural amphitheatre in the foothills of the Monte Baldo mountain range. The resort has a lively cafe culture and a lovely lakefront promenade. There are beautiful views out across the lake, and water sports are available for the more adventurous.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible 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.

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.

Itinerary changes

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.

Upminster Couple
Overall the holiday was enjoyable.
The O/G flight was delayed for about 3 hours and we were given food vouchers.
I had a hire car from the airport, so the transfer doesn't apply.
I used the hire car for my own visits, so I cannot comment on the organised trips.
The tour Manager was very pleasant and helpful.
The hotel was ideal and we have stayed there previously, so we knew what to expect.

VALERIE

Liverpool Couple
This is a family run hotel a 20 minute walk from Riva Del Garda. The staff and food were very good. The hotel could be a little noisy, but that was because they had a couple of school parties staying.( What else could you expect of teenagers). The only down side of the hotel was that it didn't have a lounge area for residents to relax and have a drink. There were seats in the reception area, but I always felt that we were in the way. We weren't, and the staff were very good, but you still felt as though you were intruding.
This is a very good hotel and a good base to enjoy the local area.

Wimborne Couple
This was a low budget holiday, in a 2 star hotel so we were not expecting luxury. Lake Garda was as beautiful as ever but maybe we will not visit in mid October again as the weather was unpredictable, cold and some of the shops and restaurants had already closed for the season. If it rained heavily there was nothing to do in the evenings after dinner and TV stations in english were uninteresting, the room basic and chair uncomfortable, our room was so dark we had to have the light on in the day.
