About This Trip

The north of Italy holds many secrets, but none as dramatic as the incredible lake district. These huge, tranquil lakes play host to a vibrant culture, exclusive to this part of the country. The little towns that ring the lakes are carefree, passionate and brimming with Italian chic and you will get to not just witness this, but completely immerse yourself in it. 

 

Experiencing Italy is not just about its towering mountains, verdant rolling hills and deep, steely lakes. To truly experience this incredible country you have to get right amongst its people and feel the energy of everyday life, and that is exactly what we have designed this trip around. Everything is taken care of, you don't need to organise a thing, but you will be taking local trains, sitting with local people, grabbing a delicious pastry and coffee with the commuters as you become part of the everyday flow of Italian life. 

 

Kicking off in uber-chic Milan, you will grab the train and ride through the glorious Italian countryside to Stresa, on the Italian side of Lake Maggiore. After exploring its islands, gardens and majestic buildings you will jump back on the train to ride to its more famous little brother, Lake Como. This is a hiking paradise, so definitely take comfy shoes with you! Then you finish up in the city of love, Verona. 

 

This completely immersive trip will have you flexing your Italian language, gazing at natural wonders through train windows, learning what coffee is appropriate to drink at what time of day and feasting on the unbelievable Italian fare at every stop.

Other Info
highlights

There are obvious highlights on this trip. You are travelling to and through some of the most incredible scenery in a country that is absolutely packed with incredible scenery! The lakes are breathtaking, the towns surrounding them are bustling, full of character, filled with incredible dining opportunities and steeped in history. Verona is sublime, delicate and beautiful in every way, so there are definitely some highlights here. 

 

However, for us, the real highlight of this trip is the cultural immersion. Travelling by coach to see somewhere is great, it works well and we love to sell them. The only drawback is that you are experiencing everything in a bubble, so while you get to see the country, you don't really get to feel the country. 

 

Because you are travelling self-guided by train, you get to be in amongst everything, to hear the excited chatter of happy families travelling on holiday, to fall into the rhythm of everyday life.  You will start to drink your morning coffee (cappuccino) standing up, with a small pastry like the locals, you will be jumping on and off local trains, sharing carriages with chatty locals and really experiencing the people of this great country. No matter how many photos of incredible cathedrals/lakes/mountains/pasta dishes you come away with, it is these moments that will remain in your memory forever.


location

Your trip begins in the Italian capital of chic, Milan. Like every stop on this tour, your hotel will be within walking distance to the rail station, so simply navigate the short walk to the station and you will be on your way to Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore. After exploring here, your next overnights will be in the gothic city of Lake Como, before finishing up the tour amongst the delicate beauty of Verona.
