About the tour


Lake Garda day-trip from Milan

The private tour will begin with your private driver collecting you from your hotel in Milan (another custom location in the area can be agreed) with a luxury sedan or minivan. Enjoy a tour that takes you around Italy’s largest lake. You’ll visit together with your tour guide some of Lake Garda’s most beautiful resort areas, such as Salò, the Sirmione peninsula, and the medieval town of Lazise.

After 2H drive you will reach Lazise a picturesque village with an old centre still guarded by its water-to-water town walls that ape the town’s chessboard square. This opens onto one of Garda’s most delightful tiny harbours, slender fishing boats occupying one side, bars and restaurants the other.

You will then proceed to Sirmione, a town built on the end of an impossibly thin, appendix-like peninsula sticking out from the southern shore of Lake Garda. This pretty village has drawn the likes of Catullus and Maria Callas to its banks over the centuries, and today millions of visitors follow in their footsteps for a glimpse of Lake Garda’s prettiest place. Here you can also have free time for lunch, enjoying genuine food in a typical restaurant.

The tour will continue to Salò: wedged between the lake and the foothills of Monte San Bartolomeo, Salò exudes an air of courtly grandeur, a legacy of its days as Garda’s capital when the Venetian Republic held sway over the lake. These days it’s better known as the erstwhile de facto capital of the Italian Socialist Republic, the puppet state led by Mussolini between 1943 and 1945.

After the visit of Salò, the day tour will then conclude with a transfer back to your hotel in Milan or other desired location.
