See in 2019 on Garda's colourful shores, enjoying warm hospitality, some delightful excursions, and a five-course New Year celebration dinner. Famous Riva del Garda, at the lake's northern tip, is a delightful spot from which to enjoy the festivities. Its elegant, pastel-painted buildings surround a little port, and its promenade is the perfect place for a morning stroll.
Fly to Italy, and transfer to the Europa Hotel.
Spend today relaxing, or join our optional excursion to historic Trento, in the heart of the alpine Alto-Adige region. See the city's Medieval and Renaissance city centre, its imposing Buonconsiglio Castle and cathedral.
Join the full-day optional excursion to Verona, the historic backdrop for the tragic tale of Juliet and her Romeo. Explore the city, then head into the welcoming warmth of a cafe on Piazza Bra to watch the world go by. Return to your hotel via the shoreline of Lake Garda, stopping to admire beautiful vistas of the lake from some of the most popular resorts.
Today's unmissable optional excursion is to Venice - quite simply one of the world's most beautiful cities, and perhaps even more so in the winter months. Discover spectacular St Mark's Square and cathedral, the bell tower, the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge, and the Bridge of Sighs.
A special day begins with an included boat trip on Garda's waters, giving you the opportunity to view the lake and its surroundings from a different perspective. Return to your hotel to prepare for this evening's gala New Year's Eve dinner, a wonderful way to ring in 2019.
Day Five (New Year's Eve)
Spend today at leisure, perhaps recuperating from the celebrations, either in the hotel or in beautiful Riva. Complete a wonderful festive celebration this evening with a candlelit dinner at the hotel.
Transfer back to the airport for the return flight.
