Magnificent Lake Garda & Venice

Magnificent Lake Garda & Venice

Lake Garda is the largest and most enchanting of the Italian Lakes and has been a popular choice with holiday makers for over a century.

The Southern part of the lake is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and beautiful lakeside towns contrasting with the dramatic fjord-like northern end of the lake surrounded by towering mountains and cliffs. Our holiday offers excursions to Venice and the Dolomites along with an optional cruise on Lake Garda itself.
