About this holiday

Captivating Lake Garda has attracted the rich and the 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, 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 microclimate.

Our three leisurely half-day walks will take us through the region’s stunning landscapes, and there will be time in between to explore further; take a stroll along the resort’s delightful promenade or ferry-hop inbetween the lake’s charming, colourful towns. Alternatively, do nothing more than enjoy leisurely lunch on its shores watching the world go by!

Val dei Mulini/Costermano

This charming walk passes through the beautiful Valle dei Mulini before we reach the small hamlet of Castion Veronese, location of the stunning Villa Pelligrini Cipolla (1760). From here the route takes us to the picturesque villages of San Veroloand Costermano, from where we return downhill to Garda.

Tour of the ‘Rocche

Our walk 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. From here a stepped trail leads us back to base, passing statue of the Madonna, constructed to protect the town of Garda.

Garda/San Vigilio/Torri del Benaco

This walk 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.
