Surrounded by mountains and lush woodland, Lake Molveno is a true gem with its unusually attractive blue colour and a quaint and charming old town. We’ll take a tour of the Brenta Dolomites for our first included excursion, discovering the diverse landscape this part of Italy is so well known for. We journey today through enchanting valleys to stop by the Nardis waterfall. The area is also known for its fruit production, therefore a great setting for our apple juice tasting. We’ll pass through its countless apple orchards before stopping at a traditional farm for a refreshing drink. Our next included excursion will take us to the charming Alpine town of Trento where we will learn of the cities Reformation and Council of Trento dating back to the 16th century. Another tour highlight is a visit to the Cantina Ferrari wine cellar including tasting of the local fragrant sparkling wine. For our final included excursion, we’ll enjoy a day spent Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake and a popular holiday spot for many famous faces! We’ll journey by boat to Limone to visit the historical lemon gardens, before taking another boat across to Malcesine where we will visit a traditional olive mill and discover the secretes of the “Green Gold of the Lake”.
