9 Days: Saturday, May 14–Sunday, May 22, 2022

IN A COUNTRY OF UNMATCHED BEAUTY, the Italian Lakes region makes an impression all its own. This holiday hits the highlights as we begin with three days in legendary Lake Como including a visit by private boat to magical Bellagio --a town that many regard as the most beautiful in Italy --a tour of Villa Carlotta and Como town and an excursion to Milan. We'll spend the next four nights in Lake Garda --home base for visits to romantic Verona, Brescia, with its airy piazzas, picturesque lanes and, possibly, the most beautiful historic center in the region and Bergamo, pretty as a postcard nestled in the foothills of the Alps. It's a week of glamorous locations, unrivaled scenery and, of course, great food!

  • As many international destinations have introduced vaccination requirements for indoor experiences (museums, restaurants, attractions, etc.) even though the entry requirements for that destination do not require vaccination, vaccination will be required to travel on all international tours starting on September 1, 2021 through April 30, 2022. We will continue to review and update our policies as restrictions are lifted.

All passengers are required to complete the DPLF Digital Passenger Locator Form ( We will be sending out specific instructions for this form as we get closer to departure.

The following link provides additional helpful information:

Mask Requirement

Currently masks are still mandatory outside, on public transportation, restaurants, museums and attractions. This may change by October as vaccination levels increase.

Negative Test Requirement

All airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within three calendar days of travel. Alternatively, travelers to the U.S. may provide documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel.

We have made arrangements for our group members to get tested at a local lab with minimal interruption to the tour schedule. The lab will deliver the tests to our hotel. The cost of the test is to be paid by the traveler at the lab. The exact date and price will be included in your final documents.

Please Note

We will continue to provide updates related to mask and test requirements as we get closer to departure.
