The Fairytale Tour - Best of Bavaria, Austria and the Italian Lakes

Panoramic view of idyllic summer landscape in the Alps

Escorted Group Tours

You’ll feel like you’re walking through all your favourite fairy tales on this fabulous two-week tour. In Germany, we’ll step inside Bavaria’s gilded rococo palaces and hear stories of the reclusive King Ludwig II. We’ll raise a stein (or two) in grand German beer halls to the sound of an oompah band, and in Austria we’ll take spine-tingling drives on zig-zag mountain passes and listen for distant cow bells on high alpine pastures. Italy promises a cruise on Lake Garda, the largest and most famous Italian lake of them all, before we head to Verona, home of the world’s largest open-air opera festival as well as its greatest love story, Romeo and Juliet. With lots of included excursions but plenty of free time too, you’ll get all the highlights of Bavaria, Austria and the Italian Lakes with the chance to add your own sprinkling of local flavours, too.
