    Your Guided Holiday To Lake Garda, Verona & Bergamo

    Join us for a break in Lake Garda and experience an Italy holiday full of culture, history and relaxation. We’ll be staying in the tranquil town of Salo, which is perfectly located from which to take our excursions to see some of the top Italian sights. Our first highlight will be a boat trip around Lake Garda, where we’ll explore the lakeside town of Sirmione, famous for its thermal spas. Our local guide will show us the hidden gems of Bergamo and explain its historical significance in Italy. On another guided tour, we’ll explore the captivating city of Verona, which is best known for its Roman amphitheatre, incredible mediaeval architecture and of course for being the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. On this 7-night Italy tour, we’ll also have plenty of free time to soak up the relaxing atmosphere of Lake Garda and with tips from our local guide, you can find activities to suit your interests.

    Let’s discover more on a day trip to Verona!  Verona is very popular among tourists as well as being a significant commercial hub, given its position halfway between Venice and Milan. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the importance of its historical buildings and is probably best known today for the Roman amphitheatre, now home to the world-famous Verona Opera festival, which runs from late June to early September. Also of interest is Juliet's balcony - the fact that the balcony was added to the house in the 20th century doesn't deter the hundreds of thousands of visitors that flock to see and photograph it every year.
