Today you have the day to spend as you wish so why not relax and enjoy the resort of Limone.

For an interesting glimpse into the heritage of the village, check out the old lemon houses and olive oil mills, and the ancient churches which display beautiful examples of Romanesque art and architecture.
Today you will enjoy a fascinating tour around Italy’s largest lake. The day will start with you being picked up by bus from your resort where your guide will tell you all about the history and culture of this wonderful area. The first scheduled stop of the day will be at Garda.

Enjoy a walk in the lively centre of Sirmione, among beautiful shops, restaurants and renowned ice cream parlours. You will have time here to explore and perhaps take some time to enjoy some lunch or an aperitivo.
Afterwards, meet with your guide once again and continue on your journey on the bus towards Salo, where you will be given some free time to explore the quaint and historic town.
Once again, you will return to the bus and the driver will bring you back to your resort, in time to freshen up for your evening meal.

Malcolm has worked for the Topflight Travel Group for 4 winter seasons in the French alps. As a keen skier and cyclist he loves the outdoors and is excited to spend the summer on Lake Garda. Malcolm's not to miss experiences are a trip around Sirmione and a ride on the breathtaking Monte Baldo cable car in Malcesine. "Whether it's indulging in one of the many activities around lake or relaxing by the lakeside with an aperitivo in one of the many waterfront restaurants - Lake Garda is a great summer destination."
With a passion for both winter and summer sports, Lynsey has worked for Topflight for over 9 years in Austria, France and Italy. During the winter months she is based in the heart of the French Alps and in the summer she swaps her skis for sandals to enjoy all that Lake Garda has to offer. “I couldn’t possibly choose which season I prefer, I’ve skied since I was 5 years old and I can never get enough but there’s something really magical about the summer on Lake Garda. I truly believe there is something here for everyone and that’s part of what makes it so special.”
