My husband and I were in the UK from Cape Town to visit my elderly mother whilst my sister had a well deserved holiday. We decided to try and get in a weeks holiday somewhere and noticed the advertisement in the paper and booked through Italian Getaways just a few days before departure and wasn't sure what to expect but what a lovely surprise all round, and for such a good deal too! We were met by our guide Ambrish Ullal from Italian Getaways and couldn't have wished for anyone more caring, knowledgeable and fun throughout the whole week. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
Riva del Garda is really a beautiful place and Hotel Centrale where we stayed a great hotel, thankgoodness we took the advice of the booking agent and upgraded to a room with a Lake view it was truly beautiful in the early morning and at dusk. At night the square in front of the hotel came alive with musicians and singer's and it had a brilliant vibe. Local families arrived on bicycles to eat late at night and it was wonderful to be part of the whole Italian atmosphere.
We went on the 2 free trips offered to Verona and Venice as well as joined the trips round the whole of Lake Garda but my personal favourite was the trip to the Dolomites in the Italian Alps it was a stunning experience with magnificient views and one I won't forget. All the trips out were worthwhile and i got my wish to ride in a gondola.
A week was just not enough and we will definately try to return someday. We would definately recommend this package to anyone.
