Northern Italy Escorted Tours & Guided Holidays

"Twisting and turning through the imposing Dolomites at sunset, we felt dizzy with excitement as the sky transformed into a riot of colours. Magnificent!"

From the majestic Dolomite mountains to crystal-clear lakes, Northern Italy is a myriad of breathtaking natural beauty and exceptional views. Discover a truly special side of Northern Italy that you never knew existed - be whisked to dizzying heights on historical Renon cog railways. Or, take to the waters of exquisite Lake Maggiore on a private motorboat cruise and explore the flowerfilled Borromean Islands. And that's not all, the remarkable floating city of Venice and sparkling Lake Garda make the journey to northern Italy well worth your while on a Travelsphere escorted tour.


A kaleidoscope of crystalline acqua, Italy is home to over 1,500 magical lakes. We’ve hand-picked our favourites in Northern Italy, where you can take a dip in the refreshing waters while enjoying exceptional views of the Dolomites, the Italian Alps and the Trentino region. With authentic local experiences at every turn, experience intimate, little-known lakes away from the holiday crowds and relax in blissful serenity. It’s likely you’ll have many of these beauty spots all to yourself.

LAKE ISEO - Encircled by rivers and by Lake Iseo, scenic Franciacorta has a medieval Old Town that is bursting with culture at every corner, including a picturesque promenade, a contemporary art gallery and excellent wineries. The shoreline is punctuated with church steeples and ice cream coloured houses. Enjoy local organic honey, jams and marmalade and take in the relaxed atmosphere with a glass of Franciacorta.

LAKE LEVICO - Lake Levico is surrounded by dense greenery in the Trentino-Alto region, making it the perfect spot for active adventures. Hiking and tranquil woodland walks are popular pastimes - you’ll catch glimpses of the glittering aquamarine lake between the trees. If you like exploring on two wheels, the famous Valsaguna cycle path runs along the lake, across to neighbouring Lake Caldonazzo and beyond.

LEVICO TERME - Wind your way to therapeutic Levico Terme’s hot springs, stopping off at Lake Idro - hidden in the valley of Sabbia - to enjoy a refreshing limonata at a lakeside café. Continue on to the little known, deep azure waters of Lake Ledro, surrounded by alpine scenery in the Trentino region. When you arrive in Levico Terme treat yourself to a luxury spa treatment or simply take a dip in the deep blue thermal lake full of natural minerals – this is truly where wellness and nature intersects.

What our customers say

  1. Wow factor

    We went on the Italian Riviera, Portofino, and Cinque Terre tour. It was so beautiful, every place we visited had more wow factor than the last. We just climbed up to the castle for the view over Portofino. You couldn't help but smile at this view" - Hazel Hovell

  3. Excellent

    "The Grand tour of Italy was excellent, tour manager Damien was marvellous" - Dave Disckson

A superb short holiday in a beautiful city. Our tour Manager went out of her way every day to make sure we all filled our days as we wished and provided unexpected extra opportunities. The included meal on the Friday before the opera was first class, as was the dinner in the hotel the night before.
