This tour will take you through Belgium, France and Switzerland on your way to Italy. Your first stop will be at Lake Como.
Discover Italian Lakes & Cities by Motorhome
Lake Como is the largest of the three major lakes in the region and is set in the shadow of snow-capped mountains. It’s surrounded by steep wooded valleys. Colourful, ancient and exquisite villas dot its shoreline. Lake Como has some great shopping experiences and is Italy’s centre to produce silk. Whilst at Lake Como your base will be the town of Varenna where you can relax and overlook the magnificent lake.
From Como, you will travel to the Dolomites via the city of Verona. This city is famous for being the setting of Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentleman of Verona. These are both fantastic plays by Shakespeare. It is a maze of pretty piazzas and tiny lanes of Renaissance romance. At its centre lies a 1st century amphitheatre, Arena di Verona, a preserved arena. The arena is still used to this day for various operas and festivals. It has unique churches and bridges (such as the Museo di Castelvecchio). You can also experience the food and wine from the nearby Veneto Hinterland.
Your tour will also take you to Pisa, famous for its leaning tower. Pisa is the location of one of Italy’s most elite universities. Due to its high student population, it has a bustling café and bar scene. Street life is dominated by locals rather than tourists. After a morning of sightseeing, relax in Pisa with food or sunbathe beside Pisa Cathedral.
You will visit Venice next where you will explore the world’s most famous canals in Venice. We recommend a gondola ride through the city’s waterways. You can view the stunning marble buildings that line them. Visit Piazza San Marco, the famous square of St Mark, as well as the great cathedral of St Mark. There is also the Rialto Bridge and some of the best Italian food and wine in the world to sample.
Milan in contrast is a futuristic metropolis which is the money and business centre of Italy. It has world class shopping and is home to one of the world’s oldest churches. It is also the home of Da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’.
