Italy's bluest lake + registered guide + transfer by chaffeured car/minivan from Verona and back + wine tasting. Half-day tour.
If you are staying in Verona for a couple of days consider taking a private tour to the enchanted Lake Garda, 40 minutes from town.
Lake Garda is a fragment of the Mediterranean Sea placed at the feet of the Alps. Italy's largest lake possesses at the same time the radiant, aggressive beauty of the South and the dusky melancholy of the North. Loved by many, from Catullus to Goethe, from Winston Churchill to Maria Callas, Lake Garda flaunts a continuously changing array of colours and scenarios.
Lake Garda is a small sea nestled between three provinces: Trento to the North, Brescia to the West and Verona to the East, and it is this eastern Riviera, covered in the rippling silvery tops of the olive groves that I invite you to discover.
You learn about history, culture, folklore, cuisine and wines visiting Bardolino with its charming church dedicated to S. Servero, Lazise a romantic walled medieval village with a castle and the dockyard, Sirmione pure jem of the Lake, chosen by Maria Callas.
Meet your guide and private car with driver at your hotel in Verona or at the Verona train station and start a 5 hrs tour along the South-Eastern side of Lake Garda.
This tour proposes:
A short visit to Garda and a stop at the famous S. Vigilio promontory, lapped by the greenish-blue waters of the lake.
A tasting of Bardolino wine in a renowned family-run winery.
A walk through Lazise, cosy walled medieval village.
A mini-cruise by private motor boat around Sirmione and its peninsula (30 minutes)
30 minutes free time in Sirmione.
Return to Verona.
I suggest you to take this tour in the morning from 9:00 to 14:00 or from 14:00 to 19:00
This tour can be combined with my other tour Best of Verona in just 2 hours
