Italy’s contribution to European painting and sculpture surpasses that of any other nation. Blend this with the magnificent scenery of the Italian lakes and one of the world’s great cuisines and you have a superb destination for a tour.
Lake Garda, combines stunning snow-capped Alps in the background and picturesque villages. Further north, the Dolomite Mountains offer some of the most spectacular alpine scenery on earth.
It is only in the past 150 years that Italy has come to exist as a nation state formed from a collection of largely independent cities. They evolved totally separately and on this tour we shall visit two of them. Verona is without doubt one of the most attractive cities you will ever see and appropriately well known as the setting for the legendary story of Romeo and Juliet. Verona's most striking monument is the arena.
Venice is a stunning city and you will see this when visiting St. Mark’s Square and Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Grand Canal..
