Lake Tour in Italy and Switzerland

A private journey takes You to the impressive Italian lakes region. You will explore stunning lakeside towns and islands, as well as spectacular mountains and valleys. Enjoy the wonderful views of Alpine peaks and sparkling waters.

 

Surrounded by hills and mountains, Lake Garda, the largest Italian lake, is Your first stop. Its shores are studded with pretty harbour towns, like Sirmione, a picturesque spa town located on the south shore of the lake. Enjoy Your private excursion by boat to visit the Grottoes of Catullus roman ruins, and cross the canals around the Scaliger Castle. Then sail towards Lake Garda’s biggest island, Isola del Garda, which is still owned by the Cavazza Family. The boat cruise continues to a much loved place called Gardone Riviera, where You can visit the monumental villa of the Italian Vittoriale, which was once poet Gabriele d’Annunzio’s home, and perhaps the less known Heller Garden, created by the last Russian Tsar’s dentist, Arturo Hruska. From the boat’s vantage point You can admire the architecture of Torre San Marco, once Ruhland tower, whose name was changed by Gabriele d’Annunzio when he became the owner in 1925. The boat trip takes You also to Punta San Virgilio, which is a small promontory around the Gulf of Garda where the Guarienti Villa is and the famous “Locanda” is still nowdays visited by worldwide known artists, noblemen and politicians.

 

Enjoy Your calm, quiet and relaxing boat cruise around Iseo Lake, dominated by a huge forested hump at its center, Monte Isola; it is Europe’s largest inhabited lake islands, home to old fishermen’s villages and castles. You can often see the fishermen at work on their “naecc”, traditional local boats. Circumnavigation around Loreto, the smallest island of the lake, and the pretty island of San Paolo, owned by the Beretta family, who export weapons all over the world.

 

You will have the chance to admire one of the most unforgettable and scenic lakes, Lake Como, an enormous expanse of water fringed by picturesque scattered villages. Enjoy a unique shopping experience in the most exclusive boutiques of FoxTown Factory Stores in Mendrisio, ideal for anyone seeking big brands at small prices.
