After breakfast, we continue our journey, and make our way to our resort hotel, The Drago Hotel, which is located on the lakeside road, Strada Gardesana, opposite a pebble beach, where a welcome drink awaits you.

Day 4

We will travel to the ancient town of Malcesine, perched on the lake's edge under the shadow of breathtaking Monte Baldo. You may wish to take the cable car to the summit for spectacular views across the lake and the Dolomites, before exploring the cobbled streets of the old town below and its impressive Scaliger Castle and national monument Captain’s Palace.

Day 5

This morning, we travel to Verona, where we see the - Capulet - balcony that inspired Shakespeare’s play "Romeo and Juliet", which was set in this stunning Erbe framed with medieval buildings. Other attractions include Verona’s beautiful cathedral, the Castelvecchio and the Scaligero Bridge, and the Roman amphitheatre at Piazza Bra where the crowds gather in the summer to experience the Opera.

Day 6

This morning, we travel to the pretty walled village of Lazise with its paved lakefront promenade and fine sandy beach. The 12th century Church of San Nicolo is known for its frescoes while the Scaliger Castle can only be admired from the outside, being privately owned. We will enjoy lunch at the Trattoria da Arturo before making our way to the small town of Desenzaro del Garda. With views over the lake, this lovely town has pretty lanes and shops, a small peaceful harbour, a small fortress, Roman Villa and an archaeological museum to explore.
