Day at leisure

Captivating Lake Garda has attracted the rich and famous to its shores for many years. At 370 sq km, it’s the largest of the Italian lakes, spanning three of Italy’s most beautiful regions – Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto. The scenery has a Mediterranean feel to it, with vineyards, olive groves and citrus orchards dominating the landscapes, mainly due to the region’s uniquely mild micro-climate.

  • Breakfast & Dinner Included

Garda / San Vigilio / Torri del Benaco

Our walk today takes us firstly along the stunning shores of Lake Garda, until we reach the magnificent Villa Canossa. We continue to San Vigilio, to admire the stunning ancient villa, host to royalty, nobility and film stars. The route rises to a panoramic spot above the legendary Baiadelle Sirene, before entering the woods where there are still Bronze Age ancient graffiti carvings to admire. From here, a panoramic walk takes us to Scaligero Castle, where we will enjoy lunch at a local trattoria before taking a relaxing ferry ride back to Garda. We can spend the afternoon at our own pace to do our own thing.

Tour of la Rocca

Our walk today rises gently uphill to the ancient monastery at Rocca San Giorgio. From here, the trail enters the woods leading to the beautiful viewpoint at Rocca Vecchia.
