Riva del Garda

With its narrow winding streets, ancient harbour, and awe-inspiring views of the Monte Baldo Mountain, Malcesine is a quintessential Lake Garda town. The magnificent 13th century Scaligeri Castle is a must-see – be sure to climb to the top of the tower, where you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking lake views.
Perhaps the most picturesque town on Lake Garda, Sirmione is best known for the Scaliger Castle. Surrounded by a turquoise moat, walking the castle’s fort walls and climbing the tower offers a spectacular bird’s eye view of the town.
Perhaps the most famous fountain in the world, the Trevi Fountain is an unmissable sight when visiting Rome. A fine example of Baroque architecture, the fountain depicts Neptune on his chariot – be sure to throw a coin into the water to assure your return to the city!
The largest amphitheatre built during Roman times, the Colosseum is the symbol of Rome. Previously hosting exhibitions of exotic animals, gladiator fights, and executions of prisoners for 65,000 spectators, today this ancient landmark draws six million tourists per year, making it Italy’s most famous attraction.
The smallest independent state in the world, the Vatican is ruled by the Pope. The area is home to plenty of remarkable sights, including St. Peter's Basilica, St. Peter's Square, and the Vatican Museums, which boast an enormous art collection varying from Roman objects to religious relics.
With its location on the southwest end of the lake and surroundings of lush, green hills, Como boasts outstanding natural scenery. The main square, Pizza Duomo, oozes with Italian charm, with the impressive Como Cathedral crowning its centre – this is also one of the most significant churches in Northern Italy!
A charming town nestled on the western banks of Lake Como, Tremezzo is home to one of the most beautiful villas in the area – Villa Carlotta. The villa is renowned for its botanical garden, which is bursting with ancient trees, palms, rhododendrons, azaleas and more, whilst the museum showcases masterpieces by Canova, Hayez and Thorvaldsen.

Found the Front of House Manager Vicky (if she was) very rude and confrontational. Deeply disappointed that the lift was out of order and having to climb 4/5 flights of stairs to reach my room. Being almost 83 and having walking difficulties I had to make sure I had everything each morning to avoid going up the stairs unnecessarily.
