About the tour
Known as the 'Pearl of the Lake', picture-perfect Sirmione is perched on a peninsula on the southern shore of Lake Garda. On this exceptional tour we sample renowned Italian wine in the rural wine region of Valpolicella, and discover unique culture in Verona, Malcesine, and the iconic 'Floating City' of Venice.
We meet at our dedicated Departure Office in London St Pancras today, and board the Eurostar to Paris. We continue by rail to Chambéry, where we spend the night.
On Day 2 we continue to Lake Garda, arriving at the southern end of the lake, where the shores are almost sea-like and lined with inviting beaches. Our destination is the peaceful town of Sirmione, which sits on a peninsula jutting into the lake, surrounded on three sides by the waters of Lake Garda. We spend seven nights at the 4-Star Hotel Continental. Located close to Sirmione's centre, the Hotel Continental offers a wonderful setting by the lake, and the owner, Giovanni, will be on hand to make your time here as enjoyable as possible.

I very much enjoy the holiday but my enjoyment was spoiled by the fact that two people who clearly were unsuited to a holiday which involved changing trains and with a 700 metre walk over cobbles to get between the nearest coach pickup point had apparently been told that they would have no problem with this holiday. It also involved our rep. and another passenger taking their luggage for them.
