After breakfast, enjoy a walking tour in the peninsular town of Sirmione, Italy, which features cafés, elegant shops, villas, and churches. You’ll then take a boat ride to Bardolino, where you’ll enjoy a home-hosted meal and get a chance to sample some wines and get a tour of an estate. You’ll then transfer to beautiful Lake Garda, the retreat of many writers and poets. You’ll spend three nights in Riva del Garda, where your hotel is situated directly on the lakeshore in a large private park and botanical garden. As a Vantage guest on this Italy and Swiss Alps vacation, you’ll enjoy a room overlooking the exquisite park — guaranteed! Cultural Connection: Later, listen to an enlightening lecture entitled "Italian with Words & Without." Dinner at the hotel this evening is included.
