The Italian Lakes have long inspired poets, artists and film stars from across the globe. These glimmering waters have attracted admirers year after year, from Lord Byron to George Clooney and it is easy to see why.

Bringing you the very best of Italy, Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are the real gems with stunning locations at the foot of the Dolomites. With a Mediterranean climate and decidedly relaxing pace of life, this beautiful region is filled with elegant lakeside towns, spectacular vineyards and olive and citrus grove covered hills.

Dive into crystal clear waters, take long lunches in lakeside cafes and enjoy afternoon wanders along the shores of these picture perfect destinations.

Spend your days in lakeside cafes; try your hand at water sports (Lake Garda is one of the top destinations in the world for wind and kite surfers); explore picturesque villages and iconic nearby cities such as Verona, Venice and Milan. The national parks are stunning and end your days at waterfront restaurants serving the very best pizza, pasta and sea (and lake!) food. Not to mention the regions most famous wines.
