Day 3 After breakfast, departure for Giardino Sigurtà Park. The tour is planned to take place by electric train, which will take you on “the trip of enchantments” for 35 minutes, that is to say, to see the very best of the park-garden. We then have a real italian experience by learning how to make the famous “Tortellini di Valeggio” in an agritourism. Here you will see this special pasta making process and then eat them for lunch, combined with a wine tasting and a breathtaking location in the land. After lunch we continue to Valeggio sul Mincio and Borghetto. Valeggio sul Mincio is a village which lies between two regions, Lombardy and Veneto. Together with the magnificent medieval town of Borghetto, thanks to its artistic patrimony, which has earned it the recognition of a city of art, is renowned for its medieval fortifications and the beauty of its landscape, but also its good food. The “Tortellini di Valeggio” are such a delicious culinary speciality that Valeggio has become a genuine gourmet industry, with its stores selling fresh pasta and restaurants. Return to hotel for dinner.
Day 4 After a good breakfast, our attention returns to the splendid Lake Garda and in particular, the Gardone Riviera, on the western shore of the lake. As well as the sights of the little town, we will also visit the André Heller Botanical Gardens. The garden was created in 1901 by the Austrian dentist Arturo Hruska, who collected many types of plants on the land around his villa. Since 1988 this has belonged to the artist André Heller. It is now home to sculptures by Keith Hearing and Roy Lichtenstein, amongst others, which stand amidst over 500 plant varieties such as cacti, edelweiss, osmunda regalis, magnolias, orchids, water lilies and trees. In the afternoon we continue with, this time with the boat,to the stunning “Isola del Garda” for a guided tour and an aperitif with a view.
Day 5 After breakfast, departure back home.
