Days 3 – 6: We have included 3 excursions and one day at leisure during your resort stay:

Included Excursions

Villa Taranto Gardens & Lake Orta
This morning we visit Pallanza and the world famous Villa Taranto Gardens. Created by Captain Neil McEacharn Scottish gentleman in 1931 when he decided to buy the estate called “La Crocetta” from the Marquise of Sant’Elia to transform it into a specimen of English Garden. Now owned by the Italian Government, the gardens are wonderfully landscaped with terraces, lotus and lily ponds, waterfalls and over 20,000 species of rare and exotic plants. This afternoon we visit lovely little Lake Orta and include a land train ride for easy access to the cobbled streets of delightful Orta San Giulio.

Borromean Islands & Isola Pescatori
Our boat excursion today takes us to the Borromean Islands, in the heart of the Gulf opposite Stresa. The Islands are uniquely picturesque and eternally fascinating as we board our motorboat to Isola Bella to see the Baroque Palace and its beautiful gardens. After free time we hop back on our boat and travel to Isola Pescatori for some more sightseeing before returning to Stresa in the afternoon.

Val Grande National Park, Centovalli train & Locarno
This morning we board our coach and travel through the wildly romantic ‘Val Grande’ national park to Domodossola. From here we take the Centovalli train for a ride through the magical ‘hundred Valleys’ to Locarno which lies just into Switzerland. Upon arrival we have time to explore Locarno, before re-joining the coach for the journey to Stresa.

Day 7: Sadly, we bid farewell to our hosts and make our way to the Mercure Forbach, our overnight hotel.

Day 8: After breakfast we depart the hotel and make our way to Northern France for our mid-afternoon departure to Kent, we then continue to Norfolk arriving late evening, where our door to door service will be waiting to return you home.
