Coach Holidays to the Italian Lake District

Lake Maggiore

The Italian Lake District is the perfect holiday destination for anyone looking to relax amongst stunning mountain scenery and enjoy delicious food. Situated in Northern Italy, at the border of Switzerland, the Italian Lake District is a paradise of crystal clear waters, traditional cobbled street and glamorous Italian culture.

With a coach holiday to the Italian Lake District you have several beautiful lakeside destinations to choose from. Lake Como is a very popular choice, with its wonderful views, historic churches, scenic boat rides and you may even spot a celebrity or two. Lake Garda is also a great choice for a relaxing break with its medieval architecture, botanical gardens and shops selling endless Italian specialities.

You can opt to travel overnight by express coach or stop en-route in France and stay in an overnight hotel to break up the journey. When you arrive in Italy, accommodation is on a half-board or all inclusive basis. You’ll also enjoy expertly guided excursions to places like Milan and Venice.

See the range of coach holidays to the Italian Lakes below, or see where else you can go in Italy.
