On one of Great Rail Journeys' Lake Garda holidays, you'll find yourself in one of the most relaxing destinations in Europe. Basking in the Mediterranean climate on a sheltered beach or at a café on a lakeside promenade, you can indulge in a favourite Italian pastime: people watching. On each of our Lake Garda holidays you will enjoy a full-day excursion to Venice and have chance to explore the towns and villages which surround the lake.
You can choose a Lake Garda holiday staying in the peaceful town of Sirmione on the lake's southern shore, or a holiday in elegant Gardone Riviera, on the western side of the lake. Alternatively, stay in the heart of the bustling town of Desenzano at the lake's south-east corner. With high-speed rail travel to Italy and hand-picked hotel accommodation beside the lake, our Lake Garda holidays provide you with the perfect opportunity to recharge your batteries and soak up the wonderful atmosphere.
Our Lake Garda holidays let you relax in the idyllic surroundings of peaceful Lake Garda, while giving you the chance to explore the region's top city destinations, including Venice, Verona and Milan. There couldn't be a more relaxing way to spend a week than with a holiday on the shores of Lake Garda. The lake enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate; palm trees line the promenades and lemon groves and vineyards cover the hillsides behind each of the lakeside towns. Our Lake Garda holidays have carefully planned itineraries which are suitable for everyone, with interesting excursions to nearby cities and relaxing trips to visit the towns and villages on the shores of the lake. Each of our Lake Garda holidays includes the services of a professional tour manager who allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy a fabulous holiday experience in a resort on the shores of the biggest and most relaxing of Italy's lakes.
