One of Italy’s best kept secrets is Lake Orta boasting lakeside villages and surrounding green hills. The medieval centre of Orta San Giulio has pretty cobbled streets and tucked away cafes and trattioras. The main square of Orta is one of the most charming in Italy and overlooks the ancient monastery on the island of San Giulio, which you can visit by boat. This stunning 7 day tour includes excursions to some of the most renowned villas in Europe with their intricate detailed architecture and magnificent gardens. Villa Carlotta Museum and Gardens, Villa Balbianello and Villa Cicogna Gardens are just a few of the incredible highlights of this tour.
