For those of you looking to travel to sunnier climes for Christmas, then you can’t beat Italy and beautful Lake Garda.

Enjoy the shores of beautiful Lake Garda, with its smart resorts and lovely lakeside villages, where time seems to stand still.

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting than Lake Garda. The magnificent scenery has inspired artists from around the world. The rich history and perfect Mediterranean climate combine with visits to the must-see cities of Venice and Verona. Poets and politicians, divas and dictators, they’ve all been drawn to captivating Lake Garda (Lago di Garda). In fact, most of the tourists to Italy head for the lake’s shores, picturesque villages and vineyard-clad scenery. Surrounded by three distinct regions – Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige, and the Veneto – the lake’s cultural diversity attracts a cosmopolitan crowd.

During our stay, we'll also visit the remarkable city of Venice, romantic Verona, and we will tour the lake, taking in a few of our favorite places during the day.

Venice

Visit the most romantic city in the world. This fabulous floating city has a host of famous sights; visit the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs or the Rialto Bridge. Or simply explore the narrow streets, enjoy a little shopping and watch the world go by from a pavement café in St Mark’s Square. Please note that the bus boat into Venice is extra and payable locally.

Verona

Verona is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities you will ever see and is most famous for being the home of the star-crossed lovers. Today, the city is a Unesco World Heritage Site where you can explore the narrow streets lined with impressive medieval and Renaissance buildings and the spectacular Roman Arena, the city’s grandest sight. For many, ‘Juliet’s Balcony’ is the main point of interest and provides the perfect photo opportunity.

Lakeside Gems

Sit back and relax as you take a scenic drive around the beautiful and diverse lakeside towns of Lake Garda including the stylish resort of Salò. If Sirmione with its picture book castle is the most stunning of all the towns on the lake, then Peschiera is one of its most historic, sitting within the walls of an impressive island fortress, surrounded by canals and dotted with bridges.
