Discover

Italian Lakes

The Italian Lakes region showcases some of the most breathtaking scenery in the whole of Europe, making it a popular destination for those seeking either an active walking holiday or a relaxing break admiring the beautiful calming vistas. Dozens of delightful towns and villages can be discovered between the crystal clear waters of Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore and the dramatic mountain ranges that lie alongside them. Gaze upon delightful architecture as you explore the lakeside areas, taking time to have lazy lunches and boat trips to fully appreciate the dazzling natural beauty all around you. Further afield, hikers can enjoy strolling around the environs of Selva, Val di Fassa and Madonna di Campiglio located to the northeast of the Lakes region, whilst Lake Levico offers a more low-key option for visitors to explore.
