Lake Garda & Verona – Italy. 18th to 22nd June 2019
Immerse yourself in Italian history and culture with your very own archaeologist to guide you!
Experience the heady warm scents of wild rosemary and sun-drenched olive and lemon trees as we walk around a wonderful Roman villa site. Pamper yourself with a dip in the thermal baths and savour Italian gastronomic delights.
We are based for the first 3 nights at a wonderful 4* hotel in old Sirmione. This elegant hotel is set on the beach, surrounded by olive groves. With one of the most beautiful views across the lake, the Ideal Hotel is great for a relaxing break. Sunbathe on the beach or take a walk through the Maria Callas olive park. Sirmione is a 4km peninsular that extends out into Lake Garda. Its a magical location and has been famous since ancient times for its health-giving spa water. If you would like to indulge yourself you will find the luxury thermal spa, Terme Catullo, just 200 yards away.
From our lovely base we will explore all the archaeological and art treasures that Sirmione has to offer, we will also cruise around lower Lake Garda stopping at quaint towns and for our final day we head into the old city of Verona to experience an opera at the iconic Verona arena.
If you feel like relaxing and not walking or exploring the archaeological site, then just stay at our fab hotel or stroll down to the thermal baths for some “me’ time and pampering! This trip has it all – Italian cultural history, opera, turquoise waters, lovely lakeside towns, pretty bays, ancient archaeological sites and fabulous Italian food!
