Customer Travel Tip: August is a holiday period for Italians with many heading for the hills and lakes to avoid the heat of the plains. As such, August can be exceptionally busy so take this into account when planning your trip.

Liked: Stunning location, beautiful towns, great food and excellent (and cheap) prosecco!

Disliked: Traffic along the lakeside roads, particularly through towns, can be bad.

Relaxation / spa Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: If you are an energetic teenager, this is probably not the place for you.

Liked: We have been several times and always enjoy the relaxation. Local people friendly. You can probably find something strenuous but there is plenty of walking/cycling on the flat. English usually understood in hotels, restaurants & shops.

Disliked: Initial greeting is often in German reflecting the majority of tourists. If you like English bitter, you probably have to do without it!
