We start with a local departure by coach for our crossing to the Continent. Overnight accommodation has been reserved in France / Germany tonight.
On day 2 we continue our journey south, arriving at our hotel. This is an old Harry Shaw favourite - the 3* Hotel Centrale. It enjoys a superb position right in the heart of the charming lakeside town of Riva del Garda. Here you will discover a wide range of bars, cafes and shops amidst a myriad of winding Mediaeval streets. It is the perfect place to capture the atmosphere of the Lake Garda area. Accommodation has been reserved for 5 nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.
During your stay we have included this excursion:
- A Lake Garda circular tour taking in the shore line of lemon groves and the capital of Lake Garda – Garda. At the southern end the shore line narrows giving a fjord like quality to the scenery. We also call in at Malcesine.
