View Dates & Prices

If you are considering a holiday that combines sun, rich culture and stunning scenery then look no further than this Lake Garda SuperSaver Holiday. The Lake Garda region offers a huge variety of activities for holiday makers – the narrow northern corridor is a Mecca for boating activities and the surrounding Dolomites are a perfect getaway for hill walkers and nature lovers as well as those simply wishing to relax in beautiful surroundings.

Lake Garda straddles three provinces, Verona to the south east, Brescia to the south west and Trento to the north; it’s also Italy’s largest lake. While it is renowned for its magnificent landscape, it also has an intriguing history and rich culture. History enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the quaint medieval villages that dot the lake and there are many attractions of both historical and cultural significance to visit in the region.

Lake Garda has provided our customers with many happy memories for the past two decades and many people return time and time again.

*Please note, this holiday does not include excursions.

Climate

Lake Garda is renowned for its mild and pleasant climate. The weather is most warm and dry in spring and autumn. Summers are warm and winter days can be cool. Mist often enhances Venice’s mysterious atmosphere.

Northern Italian food tends to be richer and heartier than that found in Italy’s Mediterranean regions, but no less delicious, with fine cheeses, cured meats, risottos and filled pastas on every menu. Try fresh water fish from the lake, drizzled with olive oil and juice from local lemons and accompany it with a glass of fragrant white Nosiola or Lugana wine. The high quality meats from the Alpine regions may be matched with a classic Valpolicella or refreshing Bardolino.  Exquisite seasonal specialities such as chestnuts, pears and peaches will enhance your Lake Garda dining pleasure.

Holiday highlights

Lake Garda

Riva del Garda - Surrounded by imposing mountains and sparkling blue water, this town is known for its medieval towers, Renaissance churches, and narrow cobblestone streets. The Bastion, a Venetian fortress, was built on the steep slopes of the nearby Mount Rocchetta and affords a splendid view of the city and the northern part of the lake.

Riva’s Piazza III Novembre – as well as being filled with history, this central square is an ideal location to take a rest after a long day of sightseeing with a cool drink or a glass of local wine.
