Want to see the highlights but don’t want an escorted tour? Want an independent holiday but fancy some excursions included in the price? Check out Crystal Holiday’s Discovery packages, they offer the best of both worlds.
I just love this idea! Choose your destination, hotel, then add the discovery package and you are all set! Crystal Holidays are offering discovery packages to Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland. In some cases you will be treated to full day excursions to top cities like Venice or Milan. In others you can also experience guided walks, scenic train journeys, lake cruises and even food and wine tours. Crystal will give you the highlights of each region and include excursions in your ‘discovery package’. For the rest of your holiday you can sit back, relax and take in the views!
I fell in love with the Classic Italian Discovery. Based in Lake Garda, you will be staying at the 4* Hotel Sole, which is situated in the best location in Riva del Garda. Renowned for it’s excellent service and high quality food, this hotel receives excellent reviews on tripadvisor and offers spectacular views of the lake and the town. Situated at the north of the lake, Riva is ideally situated to take advantage of the three excursions that are included in the price of your holiday.
Enjoy these three excursions, included in the price.
Dolomites tour: Enjoy the amazing views from the famous Italian Alps and sample some local Tyrolean dishes. If you are feeling adventurous, why not take a trip in the cable car to almost 3000 meters!
Verona: See the famous balcony from Romeo and Juliette, shop till to drop on the fashionable high streets and marvel at the amphitheatre situated right in the heart of the city. Personally I think it is more impressive than the Colosseum – but you can make your own mind up about that!
Venice: A guided walk is the best way to discover this extraordinary city. Explore the side streets, canals and bridges before relaxing over a coffee in St Mark’s Square. If you are feeling romantic – you can always opt for the optional gondola ride.
