We spend today at leisure in lovely Bardolino, enjoying its scenic medieval centre teeming with bars and cafés and maybe take a ferry to nearby Lazise (extra) - a hidden gem of a beautiful historic walled town.


Today we head south following the river Mincio to one of Italy’s loveliest villages - Borghetto sul Mincio. We have time to stretch our legs and enjoy a cappuccino overlooking Borghetto’s scenic weir and river before we continue to the stunning city of Mantua. Lesser known than Verona, Mantua boasts a fine medieval centre which is easy to walk around and is home to one of the finest Ducal Palaces in Italy belonging to the Gonzaga family. There are plenty of cafés and shops plus small restaurants full of character tempting visitors with the local Mantuan specialities ‘tortelli con la zucca’ (ravioli stuffed with pumpkin) and ‘sbrisolona’ (biscuit cake with almonds).


This morning we drive into the beautiful Valtenesi countryside until we reach Cantine Redaelli De Zinis where we can indulge in some delicious wine tastings plus a brief visit to the cellars. From here we
continue to the delightful lakeside town of Salo, which boasts the longest promenade in all of Lake Garda and we enjoy free time with the opportunity to obtain lunch in this historic location.


This morning we visit the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Lake Garda - the peninsular of Sirmione with its lovely moated castle and medieval centre. From here we travel into the countryside which bore witness to many battles and discover the small chapel at San Martino della Battaglia which pays homage to this epic period of history with its astonishing ‘ossary’.


We make our way back to Metz and our final overnight with bed and breakfast.


After breakfast we depart and head for Calais and the ferry to Dover and we continue our journey to the West Country.
