Overview

Book
Stroll the forested paths around Lakes Como and Garda, unwind through the Dolomite highlands and just keep whetting and sating that appetite with classic Italian delicacies. Ferry to and fro between lake villages and villas that keep getting prettier, and clamber about the crumbling ruins of medieval castles. Idyllic in setting, laid-back in lifestyle, and a gastronomist’s delight, this jaunt through one of Europe’s most charming nooks shouldn’t disappoint. And if it does, take the issue up with one of the local residents – like Sting or George Clooney.

Highlights

    • Ride the rails through St Moritz’s staggering mountain scenery on the Bernina Express. The region is home to alpine forests, fast-flowing rivers and Eastern Switzerland’s highest summit, the Piz Bernina
    • Spend a day exploring the beautiful villages, estates and gardens dotted around Lake Como, criss-crossing the lake by ferry. Taking a turn about the grounds of Bellagio's grand Villa Melzi can make you feel just a bit fancy, then see the shore from the vantage point of your kayak
    • It may be eaten all over the world, but Italy really knows how to do pasta. Indulge in ambrosial Italian fare in Tirano, famous for pizzoccheri, a type of tagliatelle cooked with potatoes, cabbage and cheese
    • Explore Lake Garda's shore in the saddle of your bike and discover remains of WWI

A lightweight, waterproof backpack to hold the layers of clothing. Conditions can range from hot with exercise, to outside in the snow. Weather can change quickly. Have several thin layers rather than a bulky warm jacket. Bring a good camera. The scenery is incredible. I'd recommend a small (and light) interchangeable lens camera, something like an Olympus Pen. A bulky DSLR with a big lens is going to be a handful. A pocket "point and shoot" won't do the scenery justice.
