If a low-key, relaxing tour with plenty to see but minimal hustle-bustle is your goal, consider this four-day tour of Northern Italy’s Lake District. The tour begins in handsome Milan and, via air-conditioned coach, visits five of the region’s most beautiful lakes — Como, Maggiore, Garda, Iseo, and Orta — and the charming towns that nestle into their shores. You’ll visit the Borromee islands by private boat, visit the medieval town of Bergamo, visit an ancient Roman spa in Sirmione, and stroll the streets of Verona, the fabled home of Shakespeare’s most famous fictional (or were they?) couple. A tour guide will navigate you through several major attractions in each place, but there’s also plenty of free time for strolling. Accommodations and breakfast in centrally-located hotels for three nights are included in the price.
