Food & Wine Tour on Lake Garda

Enjoy a different side of Lake Garda on a tour to Sirmione, a local winery, and an olive oil farm near Saló. Lake Garda is famous for the flavorful wine produced by the regional vineyards and its exceptional olive oil. 

You’ll start in the town of Sirmione, where you’ll enjoy a walking tour of the “Pearl of Lake Garda." The village unveils 2,000 years of history with its immense Roman villas, late medieval churches, Scaligera Castle, and palaces that date back to the Republic of Venice. This history sits amongst a scenic backdrop of various Mediterranean flora that thrives in mild weather, such as palm and agave trees. 

Famed for producing flavorful olive oil and wine, you’ll visit a winery and olive oil mill near Saló, where you can taste numerous products, such as meats and cheeses. During the tasting, you'll learn about how the natural landscape influences the flavor of the grapes and olives. The surrounding area produces superior wines, including the renowned and delicate Chiaretto del Lago, and oils like the DOP Garda Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, which has a light taste attributed to the mountainous landscape.

Afterward, explore the enchanting town of Salò, stroll its charming streets, and visit the cathedral, home to magnificent works of art.
