Due to popular demand and as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we have added an extra night to this 2018 tour. Italy’s Lake Maggiore is an idyllic retreat and a true diamond in the Italian Lakeland crown. We visit two other lakes as well and explore the ancient Roman city of Aosta – all picture postcard perfect!

 

The four-star Astoria Hotel, is located on the edge of Lake Maggiore, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Stresa. All en-suite bedrooms in the main building have balconies and come equipped with air-con, satellite TV, WiFi, direct-dial telephone, hairdryer and fridge. There is a fine dining room, a bar, outdoor swimming pool and a garden.
