Day One. We head to our overnight ferry to the continent enjoying dinner, entertainment and breakfast on board.
Day Two. We continue on to our dinner, bed and breakfast stop.
Day Three. We travel to Peschiera del Garda and check into the Hotel San Benedetto for our seven night dinner, bed and breakfast stay.
Day Four. We journey to beautiful Malcesine, a town that rises from the sparkling water in a pretty jumble of cobbled streets and little squares. Perhaps visit the striking Castello Scaligero, stroll by the tiny harbour, take a seat in a traditional café or browse the small boutique shops.
Day Five. Venice is our treat today where you’ll find impressive and iconic sights such as St Mark’s Square, the basilica, the Bridge of Sighs and the Ponte Rialto. Perhaps indulge in a dreamy gondola ride, meander through the maze of narrow streets or watch the colourful vessels on Grand Canal.
Days Six & Seven. Two free days to do your own thing. Perhaps walk or take the local bus in to the centre of Peschiera, a typical Italian old town with charming cafés by the harbour and historic alleys to explore.
Day Eight. Another day, another delight as we journey to vivacious Verona, an unspoilt city with the best preserved Roman amphitheatre in the world. Other attractions include the Basilica of St Zeno, the Lamberti Tower and bustling market at Piazza delle Erbe. Be sure to visit “Juliet’s House” on the Via Capello to smile at lovestruck teenage boys photographing their girlfriends on the balcony!
Day Nine. The gems keep coming as we visit achingly beautiful Sirmione, located on the tip of a long peninsula and home to a grand castle as well as the ruins of an ancient Roman villa. This afternoon we also enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Garda.
Day Ten. A fond arrivederci as we journey to our dinner, bed and breakfast stop.
Day Eleven. We continue to our overnight ferry with dinner, entertainment and breakfast on board.
Day Twelve. We make our way home.
