Trip or Vacation
Marco Avigo, accredited professional sommelier, and restaurateur for 20 years on the Lake of Garda, will be your host to the gastronomic paradise of Lake of Garda in Lombardy, northern Italy. One of Italy’s most unspoiled regions. We will be dining in world-renowned restaurants, typical Trattoria’s and Osteria’s. We will visit Vineyards, Cheese producer and olive oil producer.
The Lake itself covers an entire region with the west shore in Lombardy, the eastern side in Veneto and the north in Trentino. The tour will take us to the southern port of the Lake. Our home away from home will be a four star Hotel located in Desenzano. From here, we will embark each day to visit the sites, revel in the beauty and indulge in the local food and wine. In addition, we will tour across the Lake and surrounding region. We will visit such places as the peninsula of Sirmione and we will reach the top of Mt Baldo, almost 6,000 feet, with a cable car from the beautiful village of Malcesine. We will also visit the city of Verona, a typical open market in Salo’ village and the Valpolicella region for a great Amarone tasting.
Our daily sojourns will not begin until 10 or 10:30 am so you will have plenty of time to relax. This tour has been designed by Marco to be fun, informative and especially relaxing and tasty!!
