  • YOUR HOLIDAY ITINERARY

    Day 1 Fly from Cork or Dublin to Verona

    Depart on a direct flight to Verona airport where you will be met by Topflight’s representative. You will take the 90 minute journey, via coach, to the three star Hotel Bristol where you will stay for 7 nights on a bed and breakfast basis.

    Day At your leisure

    You will have plenty of places to discover at your own pace today. The old town of Riva, with its 12th century fortress, boasts a maze of winding, cobbled lane, which lead down to a lovely harbour. The promenade here is lined with colourful pizzerias and ice cream parlours, and there are lots of inviting shops and pavement cafés, where you can rest the feet and watch the world lazily go by. .

    Day Wine Tour of Trentino

    This afternoon, you will be picked up from your hotel by your coach, which will take you to the wine region of Trentino. Taste the fruits of this beautiful wine region’s surrounds on this half day excursion to the Maso Roveri vineyard. Your charismatic tour guide will not only ensure you see and learn how the local wines are produced, they will make sure you are provided with tasty snacks to soak up the delicious wines you’ll sample, all the while having plenty of fun. Afterwards, you can explore further your hotel surrounds, or indeed, enjoy some rest and relaxation by your hotel’s pool.

    Day Venice

    This morning, you will be picked up from your hotel to enjoy a scenic coach ride to Venice, where you will take a two-hour guided visit of the Floating City, with an official city tour guide. The tour includes a private motorboat ride along the Grand Canal to St. Mark’s Square, taking in the sights of the Basilica and Bridge of Sighs, then continues on foot to the Rialto Bridge, a marvellous feat of engineering. You will have free time for lunch, and will have no problem finding a tasty spot to dine upon some great Venetian fare. You will also have time to wander the boutiques and quaint restaurants that line the narrow, labyrinthine back streets of this enchanting city. Should you wish to do more, a gondola ride or sightseeing cruise on the lagoon are payable locally. Return to the coach on private motorboat, passing St. George’s Island, home to one of the architectural glories of Venice – the majestic Church of San Giorgio Maggiore.

    Day 5-6 At your leisure

    Still thirsty for activities? No problem! Your local Topflight representative will be more than happy to arrange great extra excursions. We suggest a full day excursion to Verona, where a local guide will show you the treasures of this historic city. You might also like to take a trip to the Dolomites, Italy’s most breathtaking mountain range.

    Day Lake Garda Tour

    The coach will pick you up from the hotel this morning, to enjoy a tour around Lake Garda. Throughout this scenic trip, you will enjoy lunch in one of the beautiful Lake towns we will visit along the way. Firstly, we will tour by coach along the romantic Gardesana, one of the most beautiful roads in Europe with its cypress trees and resplendent flora. You will stop in Garda, a beautiful spot where chic boutiques and quaint, open-air cafés line the traffic-free promenade. Your next stop will be Sirmione, an enchanting medieval village with old walls and narrow cobbled streets. You will leave Sirmione by boat to Gardone, a gorgeous spot which boasts luxurious vegetation, an elegant atmosphere and a striking lake-front boulevard. At the end of the tour, you will journey back to your hotel on the coach.

    Day Return home

    Transfer to your departure airport for your return flight, or if you wish, you can extend your stay for a second week on Lake Garda.
