Lake Garda is the largest and most popular of the Italian lakes with a Mediterranean climate and atmosphere. The landscape changes constantly from steep mountains and olive groves in the north to rolling hills and vineyards in the south. Limone sul Garda is a beautiful lakeside town on the northwestern shore where the scent of citrus from the lemon trees fills the air, and provides an excellent base for our excursions. There are spectacular views across to Mount Baldo and the centre has an eclectic mix of shops, bars and cafes and a pleasant promenade.

Once collected from your home we make our way to Dover for our late morning ferry crossing to Calais and onto our overnight hotel in Liege.
We continue our journey into Germany to arrive at our 2nd overnight hotel in the Ulm area.
Today we travel into Austria before finally crossing into Italy where we see Italy's largest and most dramatic lake.
A morning at leisure in Riva Del Garda, where you might like to visit Rocca di Riva, its ancient castle, admire the Torre Apponale, the 13th century clocktower in the heart of the town or visit the two palaces that were inspired by Venetian architecture: the Palazzo Pretoria and the Palazzo Vecchio. This afternoon we take a return boat trip from Riva to Limone sul Garda, where from the lake you can view the remains of the old lemon houses dotted amidst houses and businesses.
We travel to the pretty walled village of Lazise with its paved lakefront promenade and fine sandy beach and where the 12th century church of San Nicolo is known for its frescoes. We then make our way to Malcesine, the medieval town perched on the lakes edge under the shadow of Mount Baldo. Here you may like to take the cable car to the summit for spectacular views across the lake and the Dolomites (fare not included).
A full day at leisure in Riva. Maybe take a boat trip to the southern shore, stopping at Sirmione, famous for its Roman Villa, medieval centre and moated castle and one of the most picturesque towns on the lake. Alternatively, cruise to the lovely resort of Bardolino, renowned for its wine making and surrounded by hundreds of vineyards.
We travel the short distance to Arco, where the ancient medieval castle dominates the entire valley at Gardas’ highest point. The buildings in the historical centre form an arch around the ruins of the old castle and are responsible for giving the small town its name. After time to explore we make our way to Trento, the historical centre of which consists of pastel coloured houses and medieval arcades.
Departing our hotel after an early breakfast we travel back through Austria and into Germany to Saarlouis for our overnight stop.
After breakfast we continue our journey home, arriving back into the local area.
