Nature, art, cuisine and all the glamour of the Belle Époque on a unique road trip at the foot of the Alps

From the attractive and dynamic Milan, world epicentre of fashion and design, to the romantic Verona, the city of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this is an idyllic tour that runs through the famous lakes of Northern Italy. Ahead will be some of the most beautiful and authentic landscapes in the country, the sanctuary of artists, dreamers and celebrities from all over the world. A magnificent vision of nature, completed by an important artistic and culinary heritage, praised by writers such as Hemingway, Goethe or Byron. This will be a trip to one of the most popular holiday destinations since Roman times. You'll go home with memories of the area's charismatic villages and photogenic lakes, formed at the end of the Ice Age and sheltered by the majestic peaks of the Alps. Fishing boats bobbing up and down alongside enchanting piers, magnificent romantic villas, palaces in the Borromean Gulf and Islands, churches and castles perched on hills or cliffs, and beautiful hotels that today still ooze the glamour so characteristic of the Belle Époque. The "Idyllic Lakes of the North, from Milan to Verona" tour is an itinerary to be enjoyed from behind the wheel, savouring every kilometre of the way. It weaves through enchanting villages such as Orta di San Giulio or Bellagio; skirts along stunning lakes such as Orta, Maggiore, Como and Garda; and takes the traveller to cities in northern Italy as seductive as Milan, Bergamo, Brescia, Verona, Modena and Parma. Don't think about it any longer... come and discover one of the most attractive itineraries of the Old Continent. Explore at your own pace a land of sublime nature, cultural masterpieces and unique legends.

Important remarks

- Triple rooms in Europe are generally rooms with twin beds or a double, in which a folding bed is installed to accommodate the third person. Due to the inconvenience this causes, we advise against using this option as far the possible.

- Explore Verona at your pace and avoid long queues thanks to the 24-hour or 48-hour Verona Card. Designed to save you time and money, the card will give you access to the city's main attractions, museums and churches. Check out all the benefits on www.turismoverona.eu. You can buy it online, at kiosks, at the city's tourist information offices and at the main attractions and museums covered by the card.

- The proposed excursions and tours for each day are purely suggestions, as you can tailor the trip to suit your times, tastes and needs.

- A credit card is considered a guarantee, so sometimes you will need one for check-in at hotels.

- Hotels usually have cots available. Otherwise, babies will have to share a bed with an adult.

- To pick up your rental car, you'll need a credit (not debit) card in the name of the person who made the booking, who must also be the named driver of the vehicle.

- Consult the necessary documentation to enter the destinations visited and for transit in the countries where air stopovers are made.
