The best Lake Garda holidays from Scotland

Lake Garda is one of Europe's most scenic holiday destinations, nestled among spectacular mountain vistas. You could arrange your own Italy flights, transfers and accommodation, but when there are attractively-priced package Lake Garda holidays from Scotland, why bother? Some of the packages on offer work out great value for money.

Scotsman Reader Holidays (www.holidays.scotsman.com) have an enticing holiday package offering 8 day stays from just £469 per person. This includes return flights from Edinburgh or Glasgow Prestwick direct to Italy, transfers between the airport and hotel, and 7 nights half board in a 3 star hotel on Lake Garda. Longer stays are available, and you have the services of a Tour Manager.

Direct Line Holidays (www.directline-holidays.co.uk) has a package from Glasgow, flying into Verona, with accommodation in the Vittoria Hotel in Bardolino. Prices based on 2 adults sharing on a bed-and-breakfast basis are £587. The Vittoria is a short stroll from the historical centre of Bardolino and its bars, restaurants and shops. The ferry terminal for cruises on the lake is also very close.

Fed up of flying, or hanging around airports? Consider the attractions and eco-friendly nature of a train tour with Travelsphere (www.travelsphere.co.uk). Start off with the scenic East Coast line from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow down to Kings Cross, then join the Eurostar at St Pancras for your 9-day trip to Lake Garda, including 6 days stay on the lake.

The prices start at £999 per person, including all your transport costs and 6 nights half-board and 2 nights bed-and-breakfast. The train travel takes you on different routes on the outward and return journeys, so you get to see fresh sights each day. With side trips to the Dolomites and to Verona, this has to be one of the most attractive Lake Garda holidays from Scotland.
