Italy: Touring - Driving holiday
Way more than just good spaghetti bolognese.
Italy's Northern Lakes shimmer in an area of outstanding natural beauty spanning over regions. Featuring the lakes of Garda, Como, Maggiore and the less-touristy Iseo, the alluring lakes won't fail to please on a tour driving holidayr, from moorish wine and picturesque villages to mountainous backdrops and striking gardens. The most Eastern of the Italian lakes is Lake Garda, and the most popular tourist draw.
Tour Lake Garda if you want to sample scenery and cultural diversity or spend warm, sun-blessed days taking boat trips across the lake. Lake Como is widely regarded as the prettiest lake, the sparkling gem of which is Bellagio, deemed the most beautiful town in Italy, and Lake Iseo lies in the one of the best wine growing areas in the North with vineyards and cellars for exploration in abundance.
The Lake Maggiore Express departing from Domodossola makes an excellent day trip, taking a romantic path through the winding Centovalli (100 Valleys) to Locarno in Switzerland. From there hop on the boat to Stresa, taking in the Borromeo Islands along the way. No wonder Italy is on our top ten list for tour driving destinations!
