If you thought the north of Italy was all about city breaks in the likes of Turin, Milan and Verona then think again. While these cities undoubtedly have a great deal to offer tourists in terms of their history, places of interest to visit, great restaurants in which to dine out and many Italian designer shops, there is so much more to be found in the north of Italy than just the intense hive of activity found in these densely populated city areas.
Italian lakes holidays are a great way of finding out how things can work differently in the north of Italy, and can provide a highly refreshing alternative to the somewhat hectic environment of the big cities in the region.
If you are looking for an Italian holiday experience that is a little more relaxed and atmospheric, then soaking up the stunning panoramic views found on the Italian lakes could be just the thing for you. Check out the great natural views that can be found around the likes of Lake Como and Lake Garda and you’ll see just why.
For those who of us who are seeking something a little more vigorous from their vacation but don’t enjoy the intensity of the big city, then the north of Italy is also an excellent place to enjoy outdoor activities and pursuits on one of the many great lakes and mountains holidays that can be taken in this region of the country.
Hiking, climbing, caving and mountain biking are just some of the many great outdoor pursuits that visitors can take part in around the mountainous areas of Italy – and these fun activities can all be enjoyed set against what is a truly unique and stunning natural mountainous backdrop that is unrivalled by any other areas of Europe.
