Itinerary

Today you’ll depart on your scheduled flight to Verona or Linate airport. On arrival you’ll transfer to your hotel, located in the pretty resort of Lovere on the northern coast of Lake Iseo.


Enjoy an included dinner at your hotel this evening.

You have plenty of free time this morning to explore your base. Nestled between mountains and the shores of Lake Iseo, Lovere has many attractions including a picturesque promenade, a medieval old town and a renowned art gallery. Perhaps choose to enjoy lunch in one of its pavement cafés before departing on our included excursion.


In the afternoon join your Tour Manager for a visit to Villa Quistini, a traditional 16th century villa. You will see the main halls, which are noted for their stunning Belle Époque décor and art. A real highlight today is a tour of the gardens in the company of the estate owner and a professional guide, who will offer fascinating insights into the colourful displays. The bioenergetics garden, rose labyrinth, secret garden of hydrangeas, English garden and ancient orchard are among the many fabulous sights.


Staying in the Franciacorta, in the heart of Lombardy’s wine-producing region, we will head to the farmhouse Al Rocol where we will be served a delicious three-course dinner made using local produce. You will also have the opportunity to sample Franciacorta, widely regarded as the country’s finest sparkling wine and Italy’s answer to Champagne.

After breakfast join us on an included cruise around the islands of Lake Iseo. This scenic journey across shimmering waters will take you past privately-owned Loreto and San Paolo, with a stop at Monte Isola. Step ashore to discover the largest inhabited lake island in Italy. The unspoilt ‘island mountain’ is home to pretty villages and hamlets and reaches 600m above sea level. It is also famous for the Festa di Santa Croce – Feast of the Holy Cross – a magnificent celebration held every five years where the inhabitants of Carzano and Novale hand-make thousands of beautiful paper flowers to decorate their villages.


After time to explore at your own pace, we’ll return to Lovere by boat. This evening, dinner will be served at your hotel.

After breakfast, we will head towards our new base, Levico Terme, stopping at two more ‘secret’ lakes en route.


Renowned for its beauty, Lake Idro is tucked away in the valley of Sabbia between Lakes Garda and Iseo. Take a stroll along its shores during our visit, which includes time for a coffee in one of its cafés offering spectacular views.


Heading further north our next stop is at Lake Ledro, which boasts crystalline, deep-blue water and is surrounded by enchanting alpine scenery. It is a perfect setting for our included lunch, which will be served in a trattoria in the resort of Pieve di Ledro. Specialities of the area include cheese, game and lake fish.


Your journey continues to Lake Levico, a picturesque mountain lake surrounded by lush forests. You will stay in the famous spa town of Levico Terme on 
the shores of the lake. There will be time to relax before dinner is served at your hotel.

This morning, your Tour Manager will introduce you to Levico Terme. This elegant town is renowned for its therapeutic springs, whose mineral content makes them unique in Italy. During free time this afternoon, perhaps you will choose to embark on a hill walk among its castles or perhaps take a leisurely stroll through its old town to discover local crafts.


This evening we include dinner at a local restaurant where you can take your pick from a choice of regional delicacies.

Join your Tour Manager on today’s included visit to some of the prettiest mountain lakes and soak up some amazing views of the Italian Alps and Dolomites, a UNESCO-listed area.


Our first stop is Lake Molveno, which is located in a hidden valley at the base of the Dolomite mountains and is noted for its clear waters. There will be time to explore the surroundings of the lake, which hide an entire prehistoric forest, and to stop for lunch before heading to Lake Caldaro.


Surrounded by green meadows and high mountains, Caldaro is the warmest bathing lake in the Alps. The area has a long tradition of producing wines and you will enjoy a tasting here. It is known for its Teroldago grape, an indigenous red variety that produces deep, dark yet fruity wines, along with Lambrusco, Pinot Grigio, Riesling and Trebbiano.


Later, you can gather with your travelling companions at the hotel for an included farewell gala dinner where you will be treated to culinary delights of the Trentino region.

We have left today free for you to relax. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy a spa treatment and there are a variety of options to choose from at Levico Terme’s public spa. This evening, dinner will be served at your hotel.

Your holiday comes to an end today as you transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.

What our Tour Managers say

We asked our Tour Manager to sum up what they really love about this tour. Here's what they said:

I love this tour because it takes in some real jewels off the beaten track, lakes just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed, check out some delicious local food too, as well as Italy's very own Champagne!!
