About the tour
On this holiday in Northern Italy, you have the chance to explore the charming towns and villages surrounding Lake Garda and enjoy excursions to the fabulous cities of Verona and Venice.
Meet at our dedicated Departure Office in St Pancras and take the Eurostar to Paris. Continue by high-speed TGV to Chambéry where you spend the night. On Day 2, travel by train to Milan, and transfer by coach to Malcesine. At this narrow stretch at the northern end of Lake Garda, the lake resembles the Norwegian fjords, with dramatic cliffs rising steeply from the edge of the water. Your base is the nearby Hotel Sole, which boasts an incredible location by the water.

Mr P Clayden
2nd time with you and both times we were impressed with tour managers, hotels and food. Angela our manager was always available, friendly and professional especially when my wife had serious injury and required assurance.
Mr R Varley
Tour manger was superb. Very friendly tour group. Two free days on programme welcome. Slight disappointment with size of hotel and room, but didn’t detract from overall holiday enjoyment.
Mr A Joyner
I had a fantastic holiday with Rail Discoveries. Tour manager, hotels, location, excursions, all brilliant. Already planning next year's holiday with them.
Good balance of organised outings and free time in beautiful locations
Mainly because the weather wasn't very good.
Everything exceeded our expectations
