Italy, Lake Garda
Bardolino lies at the foot of rolling hills covered with orchards, olive groves and of course, the vineyards for which the village is so famous. Your holiday in Bardolino offers excellent accommodation, while the attractive and lively traffic-free centre is home to numerous bars, restaurants and smart shops. Its main square is full of inviting terrace cafés where you can relax and enjoy a glass of the excellent locally produced wine. Evening choir and music concerts are also often held in the square. Bardolino has a very pretty harbour and a scenic two mile walk along the lakeside promenade takes you to neighbouring Garda. Ferries and hydrofoils provide a pleasant and relaxing way to explore other lakeside villages, each with their own individual character and atmosphere. Holidays in Bardolino offer lakeside relaxation at it's best.
The Wine Festival in Bardolino (29 Sep-3 October) brings the summer season on Lake Garda to a close. Five days celebrating the new harvest of the grapes from which the famous Bardolino wines are made. Plenty of opportunity to taste the wines and sample regional food specialties, all accompanied by musical concerts ending in a spectacular firework display over the lake.
A night at the opera in the ancient arena in Verona must surely be one of life’s great experiences even if you’re not an opera buff. The 2016 programme (24 June - 28 August) sees the return of the all-time favourite Aida by Verdi loved for its lavish scenery and costumes. But there are also performances of La Traviata and Il Trovatore by Verdi and Turandot by Puccini, as well as the return of Bizet's much-loved opera, Carmen. If you are staying in Bardolino we can book any of the performances (listed on the Verona Opera page) and transport to and from Verona is included in addition to your Opera ticket (please note however that not all performances may be available).
