Lake Garda is not just any lake. It's the largest lake in Italy, a 30–mile–long fjord set between the southern rocky toes of the Alps, surrounded by a soaring landscape but with a gentle Mediterranean climate good for olive and lemon groves, palms, cypresses, oleanders and orange trees.

People have been coming here ever since Roman times for the dramatic views, and Italians themselves find the maritime climate very agreeable especially during the hot and dry summers. You'll be staying at a modern 3 star hotel on the Gardone Riviera, along the south–western shore of the lake, from where you can easily catch a ferry to other popular lakeside towns. At one time Gardone itself was an exclusive resort for the Italian upper–crust, and there are traces of 1920s art nouveau elegance still to be seen amid the lush gardens and opulent villas. One of Italy's most famous and eccentric sons, poet and war hero Gabriele D'Annunzio, had a grand and bizarre abode here which is still worth a look, sporting among other things a thousand–seat amphitheatre, a torpedo–boat, a biplane installed inside the house and a battleship on the lawn.

Also recommended is the Giardino Botanico Heller, or Heller Gardens, featuring a Bridge of Monsters, a Chinese water–clock, sculptures including a giant wooden Praying Mantis, pop–art by Keith Haring and Roy Leichtenstein, and more than 2,000 species of plants from around the world.

There are optional excursions too, so you can use Gardone as a base to explore the region, visit Verona or Venice, or take a Lake tour. However you spend your time, we think you'll agree that Lake Garda in the summer is a very special place indeed.

Gardone

Gardone is located on the south–western shore of the lake and at one time was an exclusive resort for the Italian upper–crust; even today there are traces of 1920s art nouveau elegance still to be seen amid the lush gardens and opulent villas. One of Italy's most famous and eccentric sons, poet and war hero Gabriele D'Annunzio, had a grand and bizarre abode here which is still worth a look, sporting among other things a thousand–seat amphitheatre, a torpedo–boat, a biplane installed inside the house and a battleship on the lawn. Also recommended is the Giardino Botanico Heller, or Heller Gardens, featuring a Bridge of Monsters, a Chinese water–clock, sculptures including a giant wooden Praying Mantis, pop–art by Keith Haring and Roy Leichtenstein, and more than 2,000 species of plants from around the world. You'll be staying at an excellent 4 star hotel on the Gardone Riviera, along the south–western shore of the lake, from where you can easily catch a ferry to other popular lakeside towns.

Dolomites Tour


Full Day
- prebook for £49

These limestone gargantuans are nearly all over 10,000 ft, the highest being Marmolada at almost 11,000 ft. With dizzying drops, canyons, lakes and karst formations, this is a mountain range quite unlike any other, reckoned by some to be the most beautiful in the world. We reach an altitude of over 7,300 ft as we travel via the Pordoi Pass to the mountain village of Ortisei, famed for its wood carvings. See the peaks and valleys of the Marmolada, the Sella and the Catinaccio, with panoramic views at every turn.
This itinerary is subject to change depending on the weather forecast and traffic.
Venice


Full Day
prebook for £65

Typically lauded as one of those 'must see' places, the first thing you realise about Venice is that whatever you've seen or heard about it, nothing was an exaggeration. There is simply nowhere else remotely like it. Gondola rides, art galleries and famous landmarks like the Rialto, the Basilica, the Doges' Palace and pigeon–populated St Mark's Square are the obvious things to see and do, but don't overlook the churches. Every time the plague swept through Venice the thankful survivors struck up a new church, each as awe–inspiring on the inside as the outside, and especially of note is the Palladian San Giorgio Maggiore, guarding the entrance of the Grand Canal, marbled throughout and with a clutch of old masters by Titian and Tintoretto.
Please note: Most bridges have steps and some areas may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
Lake Garda Tour


Full Day
prebook for £45

Lake Garda has extremely varied scenery from a Mediterranean landscape and vast plains in the south, to dramatic cliffs and a more Austrian heritage in the north, and a colourful and interesting history. Your coach will visit lakeside villages including Lazise, Malcesine, Riva del Garda and Limone with their monuments dating back to Roman, Venetian, Scaliger and Austrian reigns and empires. Part of the tour includes a ferry boat crossing of the lake between Riva del Garda and Limone or Sirmione and Salò. The tour order and crossing point will vary depending on your departure location.
