Italian Lakes

19th - 26th September 2025

Join us for a stunning 7-night tour of The Italian Lakes, hosted by our Italian Specialist, Paul Stratton, and his wife, Sally. This exquisite journey includes 3 nights at Lake Garda, 2 nights in the serene Imagna Valley, and 2 nights at the elegant Lake Maggiore. 

 

Each evening, indulge in the delights of Italian cuisine, complemented by a couple of special lunch stops, a pasta-making class, and a wine tasting. We have also arranged four organised runs that showcase the best of the lakes and their surrounding areas. 

 

Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake, has inspired poets and artists for centuries with its crystalline waters, charming harbour towns, and picturesque vineyards.  

 

The Imagna Valley, a lush green oasis relatively untouched by tourism, lies nestled between the sparkling Lakes Como and Iseo, offering a tranquil rural retreat. 

 

Lake Maggiore, which straddles both Italy and Switzerland, is set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Swiss Alps. The lakeside town of Stresa, known for its exotic greenery and genteel atmosphere, with its tree-lined piazzas and decadent buildings, serves as the perfect base for exploration. 

 

Experience the quintessential beauty and culture of the Italian Lakes on this unforgettable tour.
