    Your Holiday Itinerary

    Day1-5 Lake Garda, Italy Hotel Benaco

    The largest of the Italian lakes, Lake Garda enjoys a sheltered position and a warm, balmy climate - a seductive combination for a relaxing holiday. Beautiful towns and villages hug the lake shore, all with their own unique charm and breathtaking scenery. Framed by the Dolomite Mountains, the landscape is rich and diverse, from the dramatic mountainous backdrops of the northern villages to the pretty promenades along the southern shores. The heady scent of lemons in the air is as tantalising as the towns and villages of Lake Garda are beautiful. Not surprisingly given the expanse of water in the region, sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, rowing and kayaking are hugely popular here.
