Austria and Italy

The Austrian Tyrol and Lake Garda

Return flights from Cardiff to Verona

Departing May 18 and June 29

Eight days from pounds 599

Spend three unforgettable days on the shores of Italy's largest and most spectacular lake, then travel north into the Austrian Tyrol, for four more wonderful days amongst breathtaking scenery and crisp clear air. Some 50 miles long, and 11 miles across at its widest point, Lake Garda stretches from Alpine-like Riva di Trento at its northernmost point, to the almost Mediterranean resorts of its southern shores. The lake is one of the most popular of all "lakes and mountains" destinations, and it's easy to understand why.

Equally favoured by mild winds in the winter and cooling breezes in the summer months, the lake's equable microclimate provides a perfect backdrop for enjoyable holidays. Price includes return flights and airport to hotel transfers, travel between Lake Garda and the Tyrol, three nights' half board staying at the three-star Hotel Sole, Malcesine, Lake Garda and four nights half board staying at the three-star Sport Hotel Edelweiss, Gotzens, Tyrol.
