From the tiny to the majestic, our Lake Ledro to Lake Garda
walking holiday remains popular among those who fancy more of a challenge (grade 2-3). Beginning in the lofty Trentino mountains, our route crosses over to the western shores of Lake Garda, where elegant, liberty-style villas backed by olive-clad hills and lemon trees lend a distinctly Mediterranean flavour to your final three nights in splendid Gargnano. Close to your lakeside hotel is Villa Igea, where D.H. Lawrence resided just over 100 years ago: his collection of essays, Twilight in Italy
, relates some of his experiences and impressions of the area. Close to Lake Garda, Verona is probably the region's most magical city, and is a perfect complement (and delightful contrast) to your week’s walking.
