Day 2: Verona - Sirmione
We take a morning drive to the romantic city of Verona, where we get an introduction to the city’s main sights on a guided walking tour. Explore the Roman Arena, one of the most spectacular open-air opera venues, Piazza delle Erbe with its sumptuous Palazzos housing buzzling little cafés and famous Juliet’s balcony. We will then enjoy free time for shopping before we make our way to the postcard village of Sirmione situated on a narrow, 4 km long peninsula on the south of Lake Garda . We may visit the Scaliger Castle or stroll through the cobbled streets of this romantic little town at our leisure.

Day 3: Bardolino Wine Festival
Today we will drive long the south- eastern shore of Lake Garda to Bardolino, a quaint, charming village with cobbled streets and a well-kept yachting marina. The wine produced on the surrounding hills overlooking the lake takes the name from this village. The very pleasant light red Bardolino wine will be the protagonist of our day. The Wine Festival attracts thousands of visitors every year, we may stroll along the lake side promenade from stall to stall with a glass of wine in the hand. Make sure you do not miss the great fireworks at night!

Day 4: Franciacorta and Bergamo
Bergamo’s attraction lies mainly in its upper city, which is surrounded by medieval walls. We will get there by funicular and walk to the Piazza Vecchia, where the cathedral, the baptistery, the church of Santa Maria Maggiore with the Colleoni Chapel and the Palazzo della Ragione create a unique ensemble. After free time for lunch, our tour continues through the untouched hilly landscape of the Franciacorta wine region to a typical winery, where we will have a sparkling experience tasting the “spumante” accompanied by some delicious appetizers.

Day 5: Gardone and Garda Island

Discover the mazelike streets of the historic district and the many lovingly restored lemon gardens. We will then reach Isola di Garda by boat. The Borghese Cavazza family opens their home for guided tours: during this visit, which takes us through the untouched nature of the park, the beautiful Italian and English gardens, we will discover the rich history of this spectacular place. Back on the mainland we will spend the remainder of our last day in Desenzano at leisure.
