OCT 9-16, 2021

After the year that wasn't, we will all be so grateful to be back in Italy.
I hope you will join me for a week in a private villa on Italy's largest lake, Lake Garda, in Northern Italy. You deserve a week of La Dolce Vita (the sweet life) savoring the sites, sounds, and tastes of Italy!
*Our host has assured us that our villa will be sparkling clean and that all precautions are being taken to ensure our safety and good health.

From a private boat tour of this beautiful lake in Northern Italy to touring a Parmegiano cheese factory, you will create memories of a lifetime on this small group adventure!
Space is extremely limited for this amazing value vacation!
Day 1:   You'll be met at Malpensa airport in Milan by our driver and taken to our private villa on Lake Garda. Enjoy a welcome dinner in the charming lakeside town of Lazise.

Day 2:   You'll enjoy a private boat tour of the lake with your English-speaking guide. With apperitivo in hand, you'll stop at two of Garda's most beautiful towns.

Day 3:   Get ready for a full day with your English-speaking guide with a tour of a Parmegiano Cheese factory, a visit to a Balsamic vinegar laboratory, a delicious lunch, and a guided tour of Mantua.
Day 4:   Day at leisure. Perhaps it's Venice you'd like to visit: your host can arrange an optional tour for you.

Day 5:  You'll start the day with a private tour of Vicenza, home of renowned Italian architect, Andrea Palladio. After lunch in a private villa on a Soave winery, you will have an insider visit to the Bottega Veneta showroom.
Day 6:   Day of leisure. Many options for this day including a visit to Verona, or a tour of the Castle nearby in Sirmione.

Day 7:   Hard to believe a week has almost passed. You still have time to pick up those last-minute souvenirs before you enjoy a cooking class with a local chef and our farewell to Italy gratitude dinner. 
Day 8:   Your private driver will transport you and the rest of the Garda Friends to Malpensa Airport for your flight back to the States.
We have space for two fun-loving couples on this grand adventure! Cost is from $3575 per person plus air to Malpensa, Milan. I will happily arrange your flights if needed!

What are YOU waiting for: start packing!!
