About the tour: Lake Garda & Verona by Air

Fly into Verona, Italy and experience the very best of Lake Garda, as we travel the eastern shores visiting the most beautiful villages and towns on this popular holiday. See the spectacular castle of Sirmione, wander the narrow streets of Garda, why not indulge in a tipple or two and taste the local wine in Sarche and Cantina Toblino, or sail to the pretty towns of Limone and Malcesine. We then leave the shores of Lake Garda to partake in two amazing excursions to Venice and Verona. In Venice be sure to take in the famous sights, from the Bridge of Sighs to St. Mark’s Square, or why not experience the city from the waterways and take a traditional gondola ride? In Verona, there is so much to see from the ancient Roman Arena, to an abundance of fine palaces, churches and monuments. With the company of a local guide, you will be sure to get the very best from the city, which offers the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.
