This long-standing customer favourite takes you on a holiday to Lake Garda's serene shores and to two of Italy's most spectacular cities. Discover the beguiling wonders of Venice and historic Verona, visit some of Garda's enchanting lakeside towns, and explore the heights of the Dolomites, which rise beyond the shimmering waters, on a series of four wonderful included excursions.
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.
Your Tour Base: Lake Garda Hotels In Malcesine, Limone, Torbole And Riva del Garda
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.
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.
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 place to relax and watch as windsurfers skip across the water taking advantage of the area's cooling breeze.
Venice, Verona And Lake Garda Tour Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Italy, meet your Tour Manager at the airport, and transfer by coach to your hotel in Lake Garda.
Day One: Fly to Italy
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 Two: Day at leisure
Join us aboard 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-like east.
Day Three: Included Grand Circular Lake Garda Tour
On the journey back to your hotel, you'll visit Garda itself and Bardolino - a name you'll probably recognise for its famous red wine.
Discover the water-city - Venice. Wander the city's maze-like alleys and take a short boat ride on its network of waterways. Gaze across St Mark's Square to its magnificent basilica and bell tower, and see the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge, the Palace of Prisons and the Bridge of Sighs.

Spend a day relaxing at your hotel and in the resort. Revisit your favourite cafe, relax at the water's edge or explore further afield.

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 visit the Roman amphitheatre (venue for Verona's famous annual opera season), and have time to explore or to relax in a cafe on Piazza Bra, in the shadow of 2000 years of splendid architecture.
Day Six: Included Verona excursion
Head into the dramatic Dolomite Mountains north east of Lake Garda today. This full-day trip includes visits to towering Marmolada and Canazei in the mountain's shadow, Val Rendena, the huge Adamello Glacier, the Brenta Dolomites and pretty Val di Genova. Make sure you take the optional cable-car ride - the views are absolutely outstanding.
