Italian Lakes

Italian Lake holidays

The enchanting Italian Lakes region of northern Italy is located on the border with Switzerland in the beautiful pre-alpine foothills of Lombardy. Set between the Alps and the Dolomites, the Lakes are just half an hour from bustling Milan.

The most popular lakes are Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore. Together their rich, blue glacial waters, ornamental gardens, ancient villas and backdrop of snow-capped mountains have entranced and inspired visitors for centuries.

The Lakes have attracted artists, poets and musicians, from Verdi to Byron, as well as numerous celebrities, including George Clooney and Madonna, who have made the Italian Lakes their homes.

The best Lake hotels can be found along the scenic shoreline, or inland in one of the many elegant towns.
