Picturesque and tranquil Lake Levico is situated in the beautiful Sugana Valley and surrounded by dense forests and the Dolomites, it resembles a serene Norwegian Fjord and is also a haven for wildlife.
We stay at the authentic spa town of LEVICO TERME, which nestles on the edge of Lake Levico. Its the most famous spa town in Italy. The old town has charming shopping streets, a lovely lakeside promenade and many parks and gardens to enjoy.
A full day excursion takes us on a scenic journey part way along Lake Garda to the picturesque town of MALCESINE, with cobbled lanes and a castle its said to be one of the prettiest on the lake. From here enjoy a boat trip across LAKE GARDA to RIVA.
RIVA DEL GARDA is dramatically situated beneath sheer cliffs on the north-west tip of Lake Garda. The old quarter has a character all of its own with winding streets, museums and a medieval fortress! There are also beautiful beaches, a promenade and lovely lakefront boulevard.
We travel along part of the VAL SUGANA, a gorge-like road, important since Roman times which lead into the foothills of the Alps. Our journey takes us to the historic, fortified town of BASSANO DEL GRAPPA, typically Veneto in style where arcaded streets and piazzas are interspersed with wooden balconies. This pretty town is best known for; its covered bridge-the Ponte degli Alpini or Ponte Vechio (old bridge), military history of Monte Grappa, the regions strong Grappa liqueur, and its locally produced ceramics. A local guide will provide a walking tour.
A visit to this area would not be complete without exploring the region’s capital city TRENTO, a Renaissance Alpine city where history is art! Discover busy, yet intimate piazzas, a Romanesque Cathedral, a 12th century church and many museums and at every turn expect to see art!
Not far away is the Valle dei Laghi (Valley of the Lakes), here we visit the PISONI VINEYARD and learn about Italian wines and sample some of the best wines from the Trentino region.
