Lake Garda Holidays
Escorted holidays to Lake Garda
Italy’s largest lake shines under the sunlight for over 35 miles, undulating through the mountainous landscapes that define its north, and sparkling next to the verdant expanses of countryside that dominate the south.
Dive into the sun-soaked shores of Lake Garda with Newmarket Holidays. It’s not just the opportunity to splash around that Lake Garda holidays offer, but also the chance to get right into some traditional Italian culture, with plenty of quaint, picturesque settlements dotting the area.
Although a little cooler in the winter, the area remains warm enough to enjoy without having to wrap up. During the colder months Lake Garda tours allow you to take in the wonderful surroundings under crisp blue skies, and if you are desperate for a swim, the lake is cold but not so freezing it’s impossible to enjoy a quick dive. In spring and summer the surrounding fields burst into life with colour, making it a perfect year-round holiday destination.
Travel with Newmarket Holidays on a Lake Garda guided tour and explore more of the stunning surrounding area. After a long day, unwind in one of our incredible resorts and indulge in some top-quality food and drink to cap off a wonderful experience.
Things to do at Lake Garda
Don't miss a second of fun at this dreamy lake destination.
Grotte di Catullo
Within a vast oliveto-grove you can find the remains of a large Roman villa, known for centuries as Grotte di Catullo. Built between the end of the 1st century B.C. and the beginning of the 1st century A.D., it has beautifully preserved ruins, as well a panoramic view of Lake Garda.
Discover Monte Baldo by cable car, an incredible mountain range on the outskirts of the Lake Garda. Take it from Malcesine all the way to the top of the mountains, enjoying the view every step of the way: no tour of the region is complete without it.
Garda by Bike
To travel with ease around the lake, the new Garda by Bike project connects the various paths that surround Garda so you can cycle it all in one. The lane is wide and suitable for all kinds of bikes, as well as having a dedicated pedestrian lane for those who prefer two feet to two wheels.

Food and Drink at Lake Garda
Lake Garda’s temperate climate makes it ideal for grape growing
One of the best wines cultivated here is the fruity Bardolino. There are few better feelings than relaxing with a glass of the ruby-red elixir after a hard day of lounging by the water.
The Balkan influence in this corner of Italy is often forgotten, but when it comes to food it’s obvious in one of Lake Garda’s most popular dishes: Yota. This stew is hearty enough to fill even the hardest working of farmers, so make sure you wear some extra loose pants before you indulge!
Luxury is the name of the game at Lake Garda, and there’s no more decadent food than Frico. This dish of battered, deep-fried, thinly sliced cheese is usually a starter, but once you have your first bite it’s near-impossible to stop eating them.
