Holidays in the Italian Lakes and Mountains are an absolute must for anyone vacationing or travelling in the great country of Italy. Whilst the country holds so much natural beauty and scenic delights through its wonderful beaches and plains, the lakes and mountains on offer are some of the finest sights you will see there. Aside from this, the country also offers so much through its great culture of history with the great Roman Empire and all of the legends of the Gods that were inspired there. Italy has also given the world some of its favorite food dishes, from pastas to pizzas and many more.

The great Lakes on offer when you are visiting are Garda, Maggiore and Como and each is as beautiful as the last. In the summer time they shine and dazzle under the sun and, against the great Dolomite mountains, offer great views of the area.

Besides the lakes and mountains, of course, Italy offers so much more. There are beaches to explore and lovely little local towns and villages steeped in history. In fact, if it is history that you are after then you will most certainly be spoilt for choice. With cities like Rome, Venice, and Florence you will have so much to see from great architecture to beautiful art.

When visiting the Lakes, there are numerous little wonders awaiting you to be discovered. Maggiore’s Isola Bella is a beautiful spot to visit, and there are countless gardens for your to discover. The elegant Villa Carlotta on lake Como, and the wonderful botanical gardens in Gardone are two of the great garden attractions for you to feast your eyes upon.

The mountains are so beautiful, especially in the summer months and will always afford some great photo opportunities.

It really depends on the sort of person you are and the sort of trip you are looking to take as to how you will go about your visit.
