Italian Lakes at Christmas

Italian Lakes at Christmas

Escape this Christmas to the well kept secret of Lake Iseo. Nestled between the low Alps, Lake Iseo is an unspoilt beautiful lake which has some of the prettiest port villages in Italy.

Lake Iseo is stunningly picturesque, sheltered by the surrounding mountains between the larger and more famous Lake Garda and Como. The main town of Iseo is on the south shore, its medieval origins evident in the street patterns, arcaded shopping areas and peaceful squares with its most striking feature being Monte Isola Island, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe. 


Tour highlights:

  • Christmas Day lunch

  • One evening of hotel entertainment

  • Wine tasting with snacks

  • Lake Garda & Lake Como

  • Verona Christmas Market


The operation of excursions will very much depend on weather conditions and may be varied as require.

Happy Christmas! A morning to relax and open your presents before enjoying a turkey Christmas lunch (not traditional British turkey lunch).

Alternatively you can join the coach for a scenic tour around Lake Iseo along the eastern shores of the pretty lake.

Immerse yourself in a fairy tale atmosphere famous for being the setting of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
