Venice & Lake Garda

Lake Garda & Venice multi-centre holiday

Take in one of Europe’s most beautiful and romantic cities and Italy’s largest lake on this popular twin centre

Venice needs no introduction. The quaint canals, stunning piazzas and intricate buildings have been drawing visitors for centuries and its accolade of being one of Europe’s most romantic cities is well-deserved. Arrive here in style with a private water taxi that will whisk you from the airport to your centrally-located hotel.

Venice is quite a small city and one of the best things to do here is just wander around, meandering through the small alleys and over bridges, coming across authentic restaurants and cafés where you can stop for a coffee. The atmosphere in St. Mark’s Square is always magnetic and a short stroll from here will take you to the Grand Canal where you can stop at the stalls of Rialto Bridge before taking a gondola ride through the city’s waters.

Just a couple of hours from Venice sits Italy’s largest lake, Lake Garda. A popular destination during the summer, you’ll find people sitting in restaurants along the shores of the lake enjoying the views, strolling along promenades or perhaps taking a dip in the calm waters. It’s easy to get around the lake with the frequent ferries so make sure you explore the towns. Sirmione is a must-see with its fairytale-like castle and fantastic gelaterias, Malcesine boasts a cable car where you can find some of the best views of the lake and Riva del Garda is backed by mountainous scenery and is a popular resort for lovers of watersports.
