Riva del Garda/Torbole sul Garda
Spend today at leisure. Enjoy a stroll between Riva and Torbole on the lakeside path (at a distance of about 3km, it will take approximately 40 minutes to reach one from the other) and spend some time in the beautiful old piazzas, surrounded by cafés and bars overlooking the Lake. Alternatively take a relaxing return boat trip to Limone sul Garda or Malcesine and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Malcesine and Lazise
Visit the ancient town of Malcesine, perched on the lake's edge under the shadow of breath-taking Monte Baldo. Take the cable car (extra cost) to the summit for spectacular views across the lake and the Dolomites before exploring the cobbled streets of the old town below and the Captain's Palace. In the afternoon travel via the scenic lakeside road to the pretty walled town of Lazise with its paved lakefront promenade and fine sandy beach. Lazise also has a wonderful old town centre, with narrow alleyways, picturesque squares and harbour. The 12th century Church of San Nicolo is known for its frescoes while the privately-owned Scaliger Castle can be admired from the outside.
Dolomites and Lake Molveno
Travel north to the dramatic Dolomites and enjoy a scenic tour of this outstanding area. Travel over the pass at Madonna di Campiglio where you can marvel at the spectacular views of the Brenta peaks before visiting charming and pretty Lake Molveno.
Travel to romantic Verona, one of Italy's oldest cities, and the fictional home of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Visit Juliet's balcony and admire the beautiful Roman amphitheatre, home to worldfamous opera productions, and enjoy lunch (cost not included) in Piazza Bra, the largest piazza in Verona, lined with numerous cafés and restaurants. Verona is a shoppers' paradise with something for everyone, from the daily market in Piazza delle Erbe, which offers great bargains and a great selection of local produce, to the stylish designer shops at Via Mazinni.
