Art and Culture

Lake Garda is a fusion of art and culture from different times. The traces of the Romans, the Scaligeri, the Venetians and the Austrians merge in the ancient mosaics, castles, churches, in the sumptuous palaces and villas and in the parks and gardens. The towns on the lakeshores are picturesque settings with piazzas, alleys, gardens, parks and water streams and form a harmonic landscape with the natural environment. A land that has been able to value its many artistic and cultural treasures, thanks protected sites and museums.

Europlan organizes many excursions to discover the splendid architecture, the uncontaminated nature, the timeless art and the sensational landscapes. Enjoy a day surrounded by the colourful scenery of Lake Garda with the lake  tour. A journey around the lake through the Roman, Scaliger, Venetian and Austrian ages, to give you the opportunity to catch all the lake beauties in one day. The elegant buildings, the picturesque villages and the marvellous views from the boat will stay in your heart forever.
