  • The Villas & Gardens of the Italian Lakes

    Italy
    Join us on 14 May 2019 for this 7 day tour of gardens around the northern Italian lakes.  For centuries this area of Italy has attracted the wealthy and famous.  It has a subcontinental climate with cold winters and muggy summers; humidity is particularly high throughout the whole year and as a result, a wide variety of plant species can be grown here.  During our tour we'll visit world famous gardens on the islands of Isola Madre, Isola Bella and travel to the Swiss part of Lake Maggiore to visit the botanical gardens on Isole di Brissago. To end the tour we offer you a complimentary city visit to Milan and the opportunity to visit the Bosco Verticale, a vertical forest where two buildings have 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs and 11,000 perennials on their facade!   It's an incredible sight and a fitting end to this memorable tour.
