Italy, Lake Garda
Malcesine’s pedestrianised cobbled streets lead up from the lakeside, past shops, cafés and shady squares to the 13th Century castle which towers above the lake on a sheer rock face. The Saturday market is not to be missed and the excellent ferry service makes Riva and Limone easily accessible too. The long promenade leads out from the resort’s southern end past shingle beaches to lovely Val di Sogno, an idyllic spot for lake bathing and watersports. Take the cable-car to the top of Monte Baldo behind Malcesine. Here you will enjoy superb views, an abundance of walks and beautiful nature. With so much variety and character, your holiday in Malcesine is an ideal choice.
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 one of the main Lake Garda resorts such as Malcesine, we can book any of the performances (listed on our Verona Opera page) and transport to and from Verona is included, in addition to your opera ticket. However, not all performances may be available. Performances start at 9pm but you will be taken to Verona in plenty of time to enjoy a pre-opera dinner in a restaurant of your choice.
