Get ready to embark on this exciting 8 day trip designed to reach the perfect balance between city life, nature and adventure, while enjoying all the comforts of the Hotel that has been chosen for your stay.

 

Your first departure from your accomodation  will take you to the lovely town of Levico, better known by the connoisseurs as the Spa Town, thanks to its therapeutic springs rich in minerals.   Stroll leisurely around the town before you will be transported to marvel at the largest lake in the Trentino, Lake Caldonazzo, an alpine lake popular in the summer months for bathing.  Breath in the panoramic view as mountains and water come together. The next visit will take you to the devoted Santuario Della Comparsa in the Montagnaga Di Pine, where the five apparitions of the Virgin Mary took place in the 18th century.  Your last stop of the day will be at Trento, the third largest city in the Alps.  Enjoy this city located in the valley of the Adige River, a city which boasts a repertoire of churches, palaces and architectureal beauty both in Gothic and Renaissance style.  Spare time to roam around the city. Make your choice of  souvenirs to take back home as memorabilia.

 

Look forward and get set for a full day in Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol.  Whichever the season of your visit, enjoy spending time roving about in the Hofgarten among mature trees and beautiful ponds.  Look out for the unique Gothic Hofkirche when you explore the old Town. Continue to be fascinated by more Gothic architecture when you come across the residential tower of Ottoburg and the five storey Helblinghaus. Make sure to take photos of the well maintained, intricate facade of this lovely house.  Move on to the Golden Roof Structure – the Goldenes Dachl, a landmark symbol of Innsbruck’s old Town. Be transferred to the Swarovski Crystal Factory and whether you are interested to make a purchase or not, your visit will still be worthwhile even by simply admiring the magnificent crystal cuts.

 

More of northern Italy, this time in the region of the Dolomites, a wonder in winter and so stunning in the summer months.  The excursion will take you to the small, quaint  villages of Genoa Valley, Cascate Del Nsardis and the Madonna Di Campiglio Resort.  Allow yourself the luxury of being transported by means of a cable car up to one of the Dolomites Mountains to enjoy the spectacular view of the Dolomite range.  Impressing scenary of mountains is always complemented by lakes, thus you will have time to engage in the beauty of  the picturesque Dolomites.

 

Whether you have a penchant for adventure or not,  look forward to the thrilling adventure of rollercoastering and spectacular shows at Gardaland Adventure Park.  Enhance your experience by visiting the Sealife Aquarium and encounter magnificent species of the underwater.

 

Another day, another opportunity to discover more of the beauty of northeastern Italy. Relax in the comfortable coach while you will be taken to the city of Vicenza where you experience the Teatro Olimpico, the first covered theatre in Europe. Appreciate this beautiful masterpiece built in the 16th century which still holds a number of renowned productions.  Move on to another of the same century, impressive building, that of the Palladian Basilica which today houses many cultural exhibitions.  Daze at the beauty of the Basiilica di Monte Berico, the church of St. Mary of Mount Berico, a Roman Catholic church and a minor basilica at the top of a hill overlooking the city of Vicenza.  Pause for a coffee at the longish, rectangular Piazza dei Signori and admire the Basilica Palladiana and the Torre Bissara on one side and the Loggia del Capitanio, the Palazzo del Monte di Pieta’ with the Church of San Vincenzo on the other.  Leave the home to many attractions through the Porta Castello which together with the Castle Tower make part of the ancient city wall of Vicenza.  The day is not over yet, at least not before you make a stop at the Bassano Del Grappa, the city’s icon being the Ponte Vecchio or Ponte degli Alpini, one of a kind covered wooden pontoon bridge. Take loads of pictures of the historical bridge overlooking the river Brenta, a bridge destroyed too many times, the most recent episode being during World War II.  Finish off today’s experience by stoppingover at the Grappa Distillery and savour the fine taste of the popular digestive drink.

 

Pursue your journey to discover the tale of a city and a town, that of Bolzano and Merano respectively. Both locations have loads to offer and so without wasting time you will be safely delivered right to the centre of Bolzano in the lovely Waltherplatz, boasting the Walther monument in the middle of the square.  This square offers the ideal social meeting place with important historical buildings in the immediate vicinity. The town of Merano willl be waiting for you to spend time at the Castello Principiasco, the Duomo and last but surely not least Via Del Portici. Visit this town once and you are sure to want to come back for more.

 

All good things come to an end but in our case not before we first call at the city of Romeo and Juliet, the beautiful city of Verona. Be astonished by the architecture of the first century when you come across the Arena Romana in Piazza Bra. Walk around in the largest pedestrian area and window shop to your heart’s desires before we head back to the airport and start our trip back home.
