Lake Garda first came to fame in the latter days of the 19th century when visitors came to the clean mountain air and it has been famous as an area of outstanding natural beauty ever since. Today we will have a tour of the lake, passing through some lovely, typically Italian villages complete with tiny harbours clinging to the shoreline with the mountains behind.
Today we head north to the stunning Dolomite Mountains the result of geological activity some 230 million years ago, giving them a gorgeous pink and lime-green hue. The foothills are strikingly green pastures studded with the occasional small shepherd’s house, a few sheep and goats here and there with pine forests stretching into the distance. Autonomous since the 12th century, today you would believe you were in another country.
Today is a free day to explore at you leisure. Riva del Garda has been welcoming visitors since the 19th century and today the old town is a collection of typically Italian buildings painted the enticing pastel shades of cream, peach, magenta and ochre so reminiscent of Mediterranean countries. It has several harbours with boats rising and falling with the gentle waves and is dominated by a medieval fortress.
After an early breakfast we take the drive to Venice, unique, caught in a time warp and as culturally rich as any city can be. We will take a walking tour during which we will see St Mark’s Square and its Basilica, the Campanile, Doge’s Palace together with countless other places of interest.
Today you are free to explore as you wish. So what is it to be? A stroll around the port, a little shopping, a boat cruise on the lake? For the more energetic you could walk along the lakeside or simply catch up on some reading. In the afternoon, visit a family run wine estate, with a tour of the cellars and a tasting session.
Verona is one of the most beautiful and pleasant cities in Italy and today we have a guided walking tour in order to appreciate it at its best, discovering its hidden side too. We approach through the centuries-old city walls – when you enter the old town you cannot help but admire!
Today the coach will take us to the airport, at the appropriate time, to take our return flight home after a really memorable tour.
This Signature Tour includes everything from the Classic Tour as well as the following:
Cruise Venice’s iconic canals in the style and elegance of yesteryear, aboard a traditional gondola.
Enjoy an enhanced wine tasting experience with additional wines and a superb rustic lunch with local ingredients in an authentic traditional restaurant
Absorb Verona’s unique and breathtaking atmosphere over an aperitivo, against a memorable backdrop of its extraordinary amphitheatre
