Equity School travel to Lake Garda

School trips to Lake Garda

 Lake Garda is the largest of the Italian lakes ideally located for exciting excursions being just 30 km from Verona, 100 km from Milan and 130 km from Venice. The more rugged northern shore is surrounded by the Dolomites and in some places steep cliffs drop straight into the lakeside.

The southern shore has a softer landscape with beaches, olive groves, lemon trees and vineyards. Boats ply the lake making it possible to explore by water rather than just by coach. There are pretty villages, theme parks, excellent markets, gardens and cultural centres all in close proximity making Lake Garda an excellent study trip destination.

Excursions

Below is a sample of Excursions Equity can organise for your trip to Lake Garda - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for the Lake Garda

Verona Opera (Jul-Aug)

In the early years of last century, the famous tenor from Verona, Giovanni Zenatello, sang an opera aria in the Arena for few friends who had gathered there by chance. They soon realized how good the acoustic was and decided to use it to perform a real opera. Between July and August you and your students could watch a spectacular opera staged within this 2000 year old Roman Amphitheatre.

Lake Garda boat trip

Take a boat trip around Lake Garda and explore this magnificent work of nature. The tour starts at one of the lake's idylic resorts and takes you on a leisurely cruise with spectacular scenery.

Malcesine Cable Car

For an outstanding view over Lake Garda there is nothing to beat a ride on the Malcesine cableway, which rises to 1,600m in just ten minutes and reaches an altitude of 1760m at the top of Monte Baldo. On a clear day you can see the whole of the lake, from Riva to Peschiera del Garda; a truly breathtaking panorama.

Mask Decorating (Venice)

A 2.5 hour workshop with a theoretical introduction to Venetian Masks and the unique opportunity to decorate and take home your own mask.
