Day One

Fly to Italy and make the scenic transfer to Sirmione, on beautiful Lake Garda's southern shores. Explore your surroundings after checking in to your hotel, and before you enjoy your first dinner this evening.

Set on a promontory that extends some four kilometres into Garda's blue waters, charming Sirmione is famous for sulphur springs, which have attracted visitors since Roman times. The fairy-tale Rocca Scaglieri castle surveys the beautiful scene, and the town has a wide selection of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Day Two

After breakfast, board the coach for a coach tour of the lake, in the company of your Tour Manager. Pass wine-growing Bardolino and bustling Garda town; popular Malcesine, sun-blessed Torbole and pastel-painted Riva del Garda. Return via the western shore's citrus and olive groves, passing Limone, Gardone and the lake's largest settlement, Desenzano.

Day Three

Today's unmissable optional excursion is to Venice, one of the world's most romantic cities. A walking tour will take you through the labyrinth of narrow streets of this fascinating place, where bridges link some hundred islands. It'll be a day packed with unforgettable sights - the Rialto Bridge, vast St Mark's Square, and elegant gondolas on the Grand Canal.

Day Four

Bid farewell to Lake Garda's shores, and head into the Dolomites, with their jagged peaks, green meadows, and Austrian-style, German-speaking villages. You'll pass through lakeside Molveno or historic Bolzano, famed for its local wine, before you cross into Austria.

Your Tyrolean holiday base is delightful Fugen. This popular hiking and 'wellness' centre has newly developed thermal baths and an open-air swimming pool. The fascinating local history museum, working dairy and bacon smokery all welcome visitors, while the Spieljoch cable car whisks passengers from the village outskirts to the heights above.

Day Five

Today's included excursion visits Imperial Innsbruck, the Tyrolean capital. Stroll along its elegant main street, Maria-Theresien-Strasse, see the 'Golden Roof' - the copper-tiled covering above the Kaiser's window overlooking the square - and be sure to visit the Swarovski store and stop for 'coffee and cake' at one of the Old Town's countless cafes before returning to Fugen in time for dinner.

Day Six

The last of our included excursions takes us to beautiful Salzburg, birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and forever associated with the movie 'The Sound of Music'. Enjoy a walking tour of this Baroque treasure trove with a local guide, before exploring the city at your own pace.

Day Seven

Your last day is left free for you to enjoy the delights of Fugen or join our optional excursion to the frozen heights of the great Hintertux Glacier. This exhilarating trip includes a journey, on the Tuxer Fernerhaus gondola, to the dizzy heights of 2660m - and the mountain-top restaurant. Expect stunning views of the Zillertal Alps and the snow-capped peaks beyond.

After a marvellous day you'll return to Fugen, and enjoy a last dinner at your hotel.

Day Eight

This morning, bid "auf wiedersehen" to your Tyrolean hosts as you begin the scenic journey either back across the Brenner Pass to Italy, or north into Bavaria and Munich, from where you'll fly back to the UK at the end of a marvellous 'lakes and mountains' holiday.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your first hotel is approximately 45 minutes from Verona airport, one hour 30 minutes from Bergamo or two hours 30 minutes from Milan. On departure, the transfer time from your second hotel to Munich airport is approximately two hours, or three hours 45 minutes to Verona.

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 Italian 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, please let us know at the time of booking 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.

At both hotels we were give double bedded rooms when we had asked for rwin.both hotels could and did sort this out when we complained but in the hotel in Austria the second room had a shower which i could not stand upright in (I am 5 ft 4 ins tall) and my 6 ft 2 ins husband could only shower kneeling down!!
To save money 3 newmarket trips were to travel to the main square in Venice together. Fine, but our group waited for the others for 55 mins!

Weybridge Friends
The visit to Lake Garda was excellent, good hotel, good beds and good food. Fugen where we stayed was not of the same kind more geared for skiers. Room fair, food fair, though extremely clean. Coach driver and journeys were very good. The only drawback was on the last day we left. Had to clear the room by 10. and waited for transport to take us to Munich airport which was supposed to collect us at 10.30. but never turned up. Waited until about 12 when some of us were collected for the 2 hr journey to the airport. On the whole a good trip at reasonable price.

County Durham Couple
Generally very good. Did not meet tour manager until Day 4 (partly our fault as opted out of included Day 2 tour). As stated in other reviews, The Salzburg walking tour was far too long - clearly you have not responded to earlier criticisms along these lines. That apart this was great value for money. Super-safe and efficient coach driver. Great use of transfer day to explore two great North Italian towns. Great walking tour of Innsbruck with plenty of free time (unlike Salzburg). Both hotels fine - positive Trip Advisor reviews left. Flights fine despite pre-departure anxiety about Monarch Airlines. Would heartily recommend for content and value for money (but please do something about Salzburg - opinion on this unbalanced visit has been unanimously negative for some time)

Sheffield Couple
Our third visit to Lake Garda but our first experience of Austria. So far as the lake visit was concerned, it was short but did not disappoint in every respect except the weather! Austria on the other hand was stunning. The two inclusive excursions to Innsbruck and Saltsburg were brilliant and the optional trip to the Hintertux glacier was one not to miss. The only disappointment was the hotel. The evening meal had no alternatives,the bar was next door, open to the public and allowed smoking indoors. Also there was no provision for purchases to be put "on the room" and transactions were cash only meaning we ran out of cash and had to use an ATM. Advanced warning would have been appreciated.
