Elegant Eastern Shores of Lake Garda

The lovely Hotel Drago is perfectly positioned not only for a relaxing break on Lake Garda with beautiful Malcesine on the doorstep but it is also ideal for exploring Verona, one of the most romantic cities in the world.

Karina says...
“This is a lovely, elegant hotel positioned just over the road from the lake. The stunning gardens are the perfect place to unwind with a Prosecco!”
Day 1 Arrival
We will arrive at our hotel in the afternoon with time to settle in prior to dinner this evening.

Day 2 Brenzone Driver’s Day Off
We will 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 11km/7 mile round trip
Today, we will 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 121km/75 mile round trip
This morning, we will travel to Verona and see the ‘Capulet’ balcony that inspired Shakespeare’s play ‘Romeo and Juliet’, which was set in this stunning city. We can then wander through Piazza delle 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 118km/73 mile round trip
This morning, we will 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 is also medieval but 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 to browse, a small peaceful harbour, a small fortress, Roman Villa and archaeological museum to explore.

Day 6 Departure
We will leave our hotel and Lake Garda behind and begin our journey home.
