So what's it like?
The beauty of Italy can’t be overstated – crisp waters, pretty lakeside towns and ancient fishing villages set beneath the jagged peaks of the Alps. Whether you want to relax beside the lake or spend your days walking, cycling and sailing, we have the perfect destination for you. Choose the crystal clear waters of the lakes, combine with the historical and cultural sights of Verona and Venice or head up into the UNESCO-protected Dolomite Mountains for some unforgettable scenery.
Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como make up Italy’s three major lakes in the Italian Lake District and each offers spectacular views as well as bustling pavement cafés, traditional pizzerias and lively lakeside bars. Head up into the breathtaking Trentino mountains and discover a walker's paradise of summer cable cars, gentle walking trails and trickier hiking paths in Selva, Val di Fassa, Madonna di Campiglio and Lake Levico.
No visit to Northern Italy would be complete without taking in one of its enchanting cities, and we can take you to romantic Verona, fashionable Milan and magical Venice, with its maze of canals and waterways. You can add these as second centres to any of our lakes destinations with flights, transfers and accommodation included in the price.
Lakes and mountains, cities and spas, Italy has it all.
