Lake Garda

Lake Garda

Explore Garda,the largest of the Italian Lakes, stretching between the Alps and the Dolomites with diverse scenery ranging from low-lying countryside on its southern shores, rising to cliffs and pine forests in the north.

Explore some of Europe’s finest Lakeland scenery where tree-clad mountains descend into crystal clear waters and frame the pretty towns and villages dotted along the shoreline. Garda is the largest of the Italian lakes stretching between the Alps and the dolomites with diverse scenery ranging from low-lying countryside on its southern shores, rising to cliffs and pine forests in the north. Riva del Garda is a very popular resort in a stunning location at the northern tip of the lake overshadowed by spectacular mountains. The delightful old town is centred around a 12th century fortress and clock tower with a maze of narrow streets full of inviting little shops and pavement cafés to sit and watch the world go by.

The four star Savoy Palace is located in a nice quiet position just 900 metres from the historic centre of Riva and 150 metres from the lake. Facilities include indoor & outdoor swimming pools, restaurant, lounge and piano bar. All bedrooms have a balcony and feature air-conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, telephone, safe, hairdryer, bathrobe and slippers. Lift to all floors.

 

ITINERARY

Day One: We depart in the early hours for our journey south to Folkestone and a morning Eurotunnel crossing to Calais, then continue south through Belgium and Luxembourg into Germany for an overnight stay at Saarbrucken.

 

Day Two: We travel on via Stuttgart and Ulm into Austria and across the Fern Pass, then on past Innsbruck and the spectacular Brenner Pass to reach Lake Garda and the Hotel Savoy Palace at Riva Del Garda where we stay for five nights.

 

Day Three: A day at leisure to relax and explore the delights of Riva del Garda.

 

Day Four: A visit to Verona, one of Italy’s oldest cities famous for its Opera festivals performed in its perfectly preserved Roman Arena in the historic centre of the city. See the famous Juliet's balcony as immortalised in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and the lovely Piazza delle Erbe with its 14th century fountain, surrounded by magnificent medieval buildings and towers. Recently awarded the status of a "World Heritage Site", Verona also has a unique range of art-works and monuments enclosed within the city walls.

 

Day Five: We visit the quaint lakeside resort of Lazise, a medieval walled town with a myriad of pretty, cobbled winding streets, lined with small boutique shops, cafés and typical stores selling local fare. We continue on to delightful Sirmione, uniquely located at the end of a peninsula. Sirmione is one of Lake Garda’s oldest and most popular resorts famous for its medieval centre, moated castle and lovely piazzas.

 

Day Six: Today we take a drive into the Western Dolomites to visit Merano, one of the most beautiful spa towns in the South Tyrol. Explore the vibrant centre, stroll along the flower lined promenade and perhaps take the chair lift for some fine views.

 

Day Seven: Leaving Lake Garda this morning we travel to the St Gotthard tunnel which takes us into Switzerland, then on via the beautiful Swiss Alps, Lake Lucerne and Basel to reach Saarbrucken for another overnight stay.
