We 'Dive Into Culture' during a visit to the Villa Taranto botanical gardens - scents of azalea, camellia and wisteria linger as we explore its lush gardens filled with rare lilies and 300 varieties of dahlias in bloom. Then it's on to our home for the next two nights on the quiet shores of Lake Maggiore.

The first night in Milan at the Holiday Inn was awful- other than that we had nice accommodations and a terrific tour guide.

By Diane A on Apr 20, 2019

Our Tour Director, Patrizia, was one of the finest group leader that we've encountered. Her pleasing ways made the trip outstanding!

By Carole S on Sep 01, 2018

More expensive than other tour operators. Guide was less than acceptable.

By Robert B on Aug 11, 2018

Northern Italy tour with Trafalgar was one of our best vacations ever. Italy was beautiful, tour director great and new friendships amongst fellow travelers made the trip memorable.

By Barbara T on May 05, 2018

The first day (5/5) stayed onHokiday Inn hotel in Milan is not a good place to stay: dirty, small room in a bit safe area.

By Janet S on Apr 21, 2018

Good planning and help from Yulanda.

By Ethan F on Sep 23, 2017

This was my first tour with Trafalgar (I have taken several prior tours with Gate1). I hoped the experience would be a good one, and I am happy to say that it was. The tour leader was outstanding. Hotels were all very good.

By Maryann D on May 20, 2017

The only hotel in Italy we did not like was the Holiday Inn. Our room there smelled heavy with cigarette smoke.
