LIMONE – MALCESINE

Small cruise on speed boat on the northern part of Lake Garda. First stop at Limone on the west side of the lake, characterized by a historic district with old houses, narrow alleys and marinas framed by a lush vegetation. You will then continue towards Malcesine which is located on the opposite shore. Clustered around the towering Scaligero Castle and the historic Palazzo dei Capitani, it has kept intact its old medieval origins. Free time for a cappuccino break at one of the many cafès along the lakefront promenade and return by speed boat to Riva del Garda.

Note: Speed boat transportation. Guide available at all times.

 

ROVERETO – CASTEL NOARNA  - SOLD OUT -

The trip includes a guided tour of the town’s historic district, which is characterized by narrow alleys and small squares which give it a “venetian” appearance, a mix between the austerity of medieval walls and the sobriety of buildings constructed in the eighth century by silk merchants. You will then continue towards Noarna Castle which goes back to the ninth century with renassaince style frescoes. The visit to the castle includes wine tasting; grapes come from the sorrounding vineyards.

DURATION: half-day (2:00 pm – 6:00 pm)

Note: Coach transportation. Guide available at all times, tour courier and wine tasting at Noarna Castle.
