Full description
Lake Garda is one of the most charming places in Italy and the soul of Italian resorts. It is also the birthplace of Lugana wine, a delicate and exquisite white that will lead the way on this tour through beautiful panoramas and delicious culinary delights, including a visit to the beautiful old town of Sirmione. Visiting the southern shores of Lake Garda, Italy’s biggest lake, you will not only enjoy a wonderful boat trip where you will experience the magnificent panoply of colors that the Mediterranean will provide, but you will also learn the history of Lugana wine in the region and find out about how to marry Lugana wine with the traditional food of the region.

Your tour will start with a hotel pick-up and a visit to Lake Garda, which is one of the most beautiful and largest lakes in Italy. The edge of Lake Garda will be rich with olive groves and mellow vineyards, characterized by a mild climate, which will combine to make for one of Italy’s most picturesque landscapes. The center of the beautiful old town of Sirmione reaches into Lake Garda and is connected to the mainland by a long narrow isthmus. This town has been a favorite resort for relaxation since the ancient Roman aristocracy was attracted here by the mild climate and curative thermal springs. It is a very popular tourist destination and a favorite resting place for travelers from all over the world. You will visit one of the best and the oldest winemaking companies in Sirmione accompanied by a professional sommelier. The Lugana winery is a perfect illustration of how local traditions are combined with the latest modern technologies. In the year 2000, a new cellar fully equipped with state of the art technology was built here but the wines continue to age in traditional French oak barrels. You will be invited to the cellar and taste several varieties of wine. During the walk in the vineyards, you will learn everything you can about the culture, climate and character of this beautiful lakeshore region.

After an inspiring walk around Sirmione, with your appetite aroused, you will be taken for a gourmet lunch to taste the delights of the local cuisine in one of the best restaurants in the region. Here, you will enjoy the excellent combination of smooth Lugana wine and meals made of lake fish, pasta with seafood or white meats such as baked veal. After lunch, you will take a wonderful boat trip on Lake Garda, which shows off a variety of blue, green and Turquoise hues. Surrounding it under Mediterranean skies, the landscape will be composed of luxurious and diverse greenery, amongst which you will find charming villas and parks. You will pass and stop by the attractive small towns, scattered along its banks, which look as if they have escaped the touch of time. Here and there, castles dating from 12th and 13th centuries will also be seen.
