From the lake to small towns to vibrant cities
Sightseeing at Lake Garda
Stroll through the picturesque alleys, peer into the shop windows, pick out souvenirs, and treat yourself to some gelato. Marvel at the small, romantic balcony of Romeo and Juliet in Verona, visit the famous cathedral in Milan, and take a gondola ride in Venice. The Quellenhof Luxury Resort Lazise is the ideal home base for day trips to Northern Italy’s most beautiful cities. Experience unique moments in Lazise, Verona, Venice, and Milan.
Colourful houses, a picturesque bay, Mediterranean vegetation: the medieval town of Lazise is a real insider tip. Authentic shops line the narrow streets. Cosy restaurants and cafés invite you to linger. On one side of the town, the deep blue and seemingly endless Lake Garda. On the other, an impressive park with a six-towered castle. Savour every moment in Lazise.
Verona – the most romantic city in Italy. A city of rare beauty, with historical architecture and cultural treasures. Wander through the romantic alleys and magnificent streets, adorned with statues, archways, inscriptions, and medieval windows. As you pass by opulently decorated luxury stores, showcasing names like Louis Vuitton or Swarovski, your senses will be delighted. Ascend the Torre dei Lamberti to relish a breathtaking view of the city, and then celebrate your holiday with an aperitif in the bustling Piazza delle Erbe below. A highlight is the small, stone balcony that (according to local lore) inspired Shakespeare to write his world-famous tragedy Romeo and Juliet.
The lagoon city of Venice is a place unlike any other. Wide and narrow canals crisscross the city, ornate gondolas glide across the water, and wherever you look, you will discover magnificent architecture. The world-famous St Mark’s Square is home to the magnificent cathedral, the bell tower, which offers a fantastic view of the city, and the Doge’s Palace with its Bridge of Sighs. Refresh yourself with an Aperol Spritz, which was invented here in Venice, while you nibble on the local cicchetti.
No city is as fascinating as Milan: skyscrapers and historic buildings stand side by side; modern design meets classic architecture. The city is considered a metropolis of fashion, a paradise for all shopping fans. Yet, the appeal of Milan extends beyond fashion to the rich world of art, astounding even the most discerning connoisseur. If you book in advance, you can visit the world-famous Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. The magnificent Milan Cathedral is not only eye-catching inside and out but also captivates with the unique panoramic view from its rooftop.
