Elegant Eastern Shores of Lake Garda 2019

From our base on the eastern shores of the lake, this Lake Garda tour takes you to beautiful villages with sandy beaches, towns with castles, palaces and mountains and the stunning city of Verona with its cathedral, the Castelvecchio and of course the ‘Capulet’ balcony.

Tina says...
"This is truly a wonderful hotel, situated across the road from the Lake. The rooms are very comfortable, the buffet meals are excellent and the staff make you feel very welcome."
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Brenzone Driver’s Day Off
We spend today relaxing at our hotel or perhaps taking a walk along the lake. Alternatively, local coach hire can be arranged should we wish to venture out for the day.

Day 3 Malcesine
Today, we visit the ancient town of Malcesine, perched on the lake’s edge under the shadow of breathtaking Monte Baldo. Take the cable car to the summit for spectacular views across the lake and the Dolomites before exploring the cobbled streets of the old town below and its impressive Scaliger Castle and Captain’s Palace.

Day 4 Verona
This morning, we travel to Verona and see the ‘Capulet’ balcony that inspired Shakespeare’s play ‘Romeo and Juliet’, which was set in this stunning Erbe framed with medieval buildings, visit Verona’s beautiful cathedral, the Castelvecchio and the Scaligero Bridge and the Roman amphitheatre at Piazza Bra where the crowds gather in the summer to experience the Opera.

Day 5 Lazise & Desenzano
This morning, we travel to the pretty walled village of Lazise with its paved lakefront promenade and fine sandy beach. The 12th century Church of San Nicolo is known for its frescoes while the Scaliger Castle can only be admired from the outside, being privately owned. We can enjoy lunch at the Trattoria da Arturo before making our way to the small town of Desenzano del Garda. With views over the lake, this lovely town has pretty lanes and shops, a small peaceful harbour, a small fortress, Roman Villa and archaeological museum to explore.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
