Torn between two destinations? Visit them both and combine the best elements of our lakes, mountains and cities on a multi-centre holiday. Blend lakeside stays with peak retreats, or swap nature’s bounty for a buzzing city. You can choose the duration and hotels to suit you, and you’ll travel in comfort with private transfers between airports and resorts. But where to start?
A dozen towns sprinkle the shores of Lake Garda, each with its own style and atmosphere. To get an overall feel of the region, pair the cliffside resort of Limone on the north-west – with its bustling promenade, cobbled streets and lemon groves – with the medieval walled town and thermal spas of Sirmione in the south.
See two Italian lakes with a Como and Maggiore multi-centre. Spend lazy days on Lake Como soaking up the elegance and exotic scenery, taking boats between colourful villages and wandering around peaceful villas and gardens. Then head to Lake Maggiore to explore the beautiful Borromean Islands, stroll along promenades lined with grand hotels and pebble beaches, and while away your evenings in waterside restaurants.
If you’re tempted by the lakes but feel the call of the mountains too, why not see both? Combine the historic harbour town of Riva on Lake Garda with Selva Val Gardena, a walker’s paradise in the breathtaking Dolomites. Or if Austria sounds more intriguing, spend half your holiday in the cosmopolitan lakeside hub of Zell am See and the other half in Kitzbühel, a mountain town with a mix of upmarket shops and traditional charm. Over in Slovenia, you can mix the dreamy landscapes of Lake Bled or Lake Bohinj with Kranjska Gora in the Julian Alps.
Get a real contrast by splitting your trip between a lake or mountain resort and a vibrant city. Move from the boutique shops, pavement cafés and lake views of Bardolino to the symbolic heart of Italy, Verona. Mix glitzy Kitzbühel or cheerful Zell am See with the musical city of Salzburg, home to Mozart and The Sound of Music. Or see picturesque Zakopane in the Tatras Mountains before heading to Kraków, Poland’s cultural capital.
