The majestic Brenta Dolomites beckon us today on our fantastic included excursion (weather permitting).
First we visit the idyllic resort of Madonna di Campiglio, set in dense pine forests and towered over by breathtaking mountains. It is one of the most famous resorts of the Trentino region and is a paradise for skiers and winter sports lovers. You will have time at leisure before we continue to Andalo.
Andalo is located on a plateau between the Brenta Group and Paganella Massif. The town is a popular sport tourist destination and is equipped with an ultra-modern ski lift system, which runs all year round. It also has a well-equipped sport centre covering an area of over 100,000 square meters and offering a huge range of sport opportunities.

Today’s optional excursion takes us through sweeping mountains and undulating valleys to Trento.
Regarded as the most attractive town in the Trentino region, Trento is home of the spectacular Piazza del Duomo, once used by the Romans as their forum. The city is rooted in art and history, where the Italian and central Europe cultures meet. See the Castello del Buonconsiglio, which has been the residence of the Prince Bishops of Trento for several centuries. Also, see the Piazza del Duomo or Market Square, where a Baroque fountain of Neptune now stands in the centre. Around the square stands the cathedral, the Law Courts, the Municipal Tower and houses painted with 16th century allegorical frescoes.

Depart after breakfast and travel north to Belgium for an overnight stay.
We believe that our holidays may not be suitable for children under 8 years old (except for Disneyland Paris bookings) however, we will
consider individual requests on application. Customers aged 18 and under at the time of travel must be accompanied by an adult, parent or
guardian aged over 18 years old.
You will stay for four nights in either the 3-star Hotel Lady Maria, ideally located in the centre of Fondo, close to Lake Smeraldo, or its sister hotel, the Panorama in neighbouring Malosco. Both hotels have a lift, bar and restaurant and are owned by the Bonvicin family, who have been welcoming Leger guests for many years.
Overnight stays in Belgium are in city-style hotels.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
