Overview

Pass a tranquil afternoon by the banks of Lake Garda, Italy’s premier freshwater jewel.

Lake Garda bends in harmony with the contours of Alpine rock faces and its shores are lined with lush Mediterranean vegetation.

This tour gives you plenty of free time to explore the historic and picturesque resorts that rise reverently from the banks.

Take a romantic stroll in Salo along a generous promenade, entranced by the colorful yachts that bob gently in the gentle waters.

Take a lake cruise to the town of Sirmione, which is graced by medieval architecture and preening swans.

Itinerary

The Lake Garda outing departs from a number of locations, giving you the opportunity to see this alluring lake regardless of where you happen to be vacationing.

All tours are conducted by coach and led by a knowledgeable bilingual guide who speaks English and German.

Drive to the shores of Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. Formed by glaciers at the end of the last ice age, this natural marvel shimmers in the shadow of Alpine ranges.

Castle-dwelling Lords and Roman poets have built their homes by the banks of this heavenly body of water and the sulfur springs at the tip of the peninsula are said to have healing powers.

This tour gives you the chance to see some of the area’s most beautiful lakeside towns. Drive to Salo, where the largest promenade on Lake Garda opens up to a charming piazza filled with shops and cafes.

Take a delightful cruise to the perched town of Sirmione, where a 13th-century castle rises over an azure moat patrolled by swans.

Return by coach through the sleepy medieval town of Lazise, where pastel-colored villas from the 18th century are mirrored in the lake’s still waters.

All tours will end where they began.
