Itinerary

Day 1 – Fly to Italy

We take our scheduled flight from London to Italy (regional flights available on request - please call) where we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our time in Italy. Transfer in our private executive coach to a good 3* hotel in the Lake Garda area for a five night stay on half board basis.

Day 2 – Tour of Lake Garda

Our tour of Lake Garda combines both coach and boat and is a lovely way to see the real beauty of the Lake and its villages including Sirmione, home to Maria Callas, Limone and Gardone Riviera.

Day 3 – Venice

On arrival in Venice we have a pre-booked boat transfer along the Giudecca Canal. Once in Venice we have free time at our leisure to explore the city including the famous Rialto Bridge, Palazzo Ducale and St Mark’s Square to name but a few. For art lovers why not visit the Accademia with works by Venetian artists dating from 14th till 18th century. Our tour manager can organise an optional gondola ride prior to returning back to Lake Garda.

Day 4 – Verona

Verona is often described as Italy’s fourth classical city. Our day begins with an optional guided tour of this beautiful Romanesque city which is home to the Arena dating from 1st century BC and Shakespeare’s inspiration for ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Our return to the hotel allows time to relax in the late afternoon.

Day 5 – Dolomites

Today is a free day to explore Lake Garda at your leisure or why not join our optional trip into the Dolomites? With truly magnificent scenery including the Passa Por Doi and Sella Pass, both over 2,200m high, this is some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Europe.

Day 6 – Innsbruck & Oberammergau

We leave Italy today and travel to Oberammergau. En route we stop at Innsbruck home to Cathedral St Jacob, the Imperial Palace and the Golden Roof. We then check in to our allocated Category C hotels and guesthouses in and around Oberammergau for a two night stay. Dinner is included this evening.

Day 7 – Oberammergau Passion Play

This morning you have time to explore the village, visit the Oberammergau Museum and for lunch before we take our Category 1 or Category 2 seats for the Passion Play. The performance runs from 2.30pm till 10.30pm until 16th August and from 1.30pm till 9.30pm from 18th August, in each case with a three hour interval for included dinner.

Day 8 – Fly home

After breakfast in Oberammergau we transfer to Munich Airport for our scheduled flight home.
