Italy’s rustic and mountainous northern region is dotted with sparkling lakes. A popular holiday destination since the Roman times, the sheer beauty of these treasures has well and truly stood the test of time. Edged with chic resorts and revealing centuries of history, bustling Garda and serene Maggiore each offer a distinct personality. Like a fine Italian wine, they are each best uncorked and savoured slowly - so we’ll linger for eight days, with a visit to polished Como in between.
