What’s included

Itinerary

Day 1 - To Zurich

Your journey begins at London St Pancras as you board the Eurostar to Paris where you'll connect for your journey to Zurich to spend one night.

Day 2 - To Desenzano

On Day 2 you travel through the Alps to Desenzano in Italy. From here, make your way to your 4-Star hotel, your base for this charming holiday by the water.

Day 3 - Exploring Lake Garda

Your time is free to spend as you wish, soaking up the laid-back atmosphere of Lake Garda. Sirmione is known as the 'pearl of the lake', and offers a charming base for wider discovery, with Venice and Verona in easy reach. Situated on the southern end of the lake, this picturesque town rests on a peninsula that juts out into Lake Garda, and is surrounded on three sides by water, creating a peaceful atmosphere.

If you prefer to enjoy the lake from a different vantage point, alternative lakeside resorts can be arranged on request - simply tell us where you would rather stay, and we will make arrangements for you. Whilst here, you might choose to sail out to one of the alluring islands that bob on the lake, or alternatively, make your way to Venice or Verona - two of Italy's most romantic cities, both of which are easily accessible from Lake Garda.
