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?
