This eight-day tour begins in picturesque Lake Garda and then travels through the Dolomite mountains, taking in spectacular mountain scenery along the way before reaching Venice. There is no city quite like Venice with its canals, ornate churches and stunning vistas across the lagoon.
A guided tour will bring St Mark's Square and Basilica, the Doge's Palace and the Grand Canal to life, but there’s nothing like exploring its twisting back streets and getting to the heart of this unique city. Equally memorable is nearby Verona, the setting for Romeo and Juliet and famous for its ancient Roman ruins like the arena. It’s also a great place to shop, or just relax and admire the countless squares and courtyards – and, of course, the cuisine.
