Travel to Italy
Transfer to Lake Garda
Upon arrival in Italy, you will be met in the airport by your local representative who will accompany you to your hotel, located in the beautiful town of Riva del Garda. As you travel to your hotel, your guide will share some information about the local region, suggest activities for you to enjoy and answer any questions we may have.
Full Day Guided Tour of Lake Garda
After breakfast, join us for a short walking tour of Riva. Following this, we will board a private boat for a unique sightseeing tour. Our first stop will be at Limone, a small village backed by lemon groves, with waterside cafes and cobbled streets lined with shops. Afterwards, with fantastic panoramas and a spectacular mountain backdrop, travel onwards for a visit to picturesque Malcesine, famed for its medieval Scaligero Castle. The boat will then return to Riva del Garda, but if you wish to stay on, you may return by public bus or boat later in the afternoon (this will be at your own expense). If remaining in Malcesine, we recommend a trip in the cable car which will take you 1,800 metres above sea level, with spectacular views. Please note that this schedule refers to summer season only and is weather-dependent.
During winter months, this sightseeing excursion of Lake Garda will be by coach passing through typical Italian villages and including stops at Salo and Sirmione.
