Choose from a variety of hotels as your base and enjoy an array of excursions, with flights and transfers included.
Lake Maggiore Discovery
This elegant destination is a feast for the senses. Not only is the scenery a treat for the eyes, but it makes an enchanting canvas against which to tease the tastebuds. Try a glass of the local Piedmont wine, or alternatively, Barolo or Asti Spumanti, paired with the catch of the day on the Isola Pescatori (the fisherman’s island) just across the water.
With the Lake Maggiore Discovery you can choose to stay in either of the resorts of Stresa or Baveno and sample local restaurants like Pappagalio, a cosy, family-run pizza place, and enjoy a wine tasting evening. You’ll also spend a day in Milan, a city that prides itself on its cafe culture. Sip an espresso while you admire the Duomo.
Prices for Lake Maggiore Discovery are from £699 per person (based on two sharing) including flights from Gatwick, transfers, seven nights half board at the three-star Hotel Flora in Stresa, an Island Tour, Tour of Milan and a Three Lakes Excursion.
