LAKE GARDA & VERONA OPERA
The largest and most visited lake in Italy, Lake
Garda boasts crystal-clear dark blue water, charming
harbor towns, jagged mountains in the North and
vineyards and lemon groves as background in the
South. Board one of the regular ferries and discover
medieval castles, aristocratic villas, botanical
gardens and fascinating villages. For the best views,
head to Malcesine's cable car to Baldo Mountain;
from the rotating cabins the lake and surrounding
mountains are just mesmerizing. Perched on a
narrow strip of land two miles long, reaching into the
lake, Sirmione is considered Lake Garda's prettiest
town. On a quiet residential area of Sirmione, your
hotel is only minutes away from the beach and a
short drive - a free minibus service is provided - to
its 13th century castle and natural hot springs. For
an unforgettable experience, book our Verona Opera
package and watch international stars perform at
the biggest open-air lyrical music event in the world.
Held at the Roman Amphitheatre of Verona it has
lavish productions throughout summer; the likes of
Aida, Tosca and Romeo et Juliette. Call for timetable
