The heart of Sorrento is the Old Town. The town consists of a mixture of tiny streets anchored by Piazza Tasso and Via Capo at end each and nestled between Corso Italia and the coastline. This area is mostly pedestrianised and it even still preserves some of the medical buildings, Antichi Palazzi with facades typical of the 13th century, original decorations and ancient churches. 
 

Lake Garda

 
Lake Garda is situated in north Italy and can be reached via any of Milan’s airports and Verona airport.  Lake Garda is divided into three distinct regions – Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige and the Veneto. Veneto is where you’ll find the namesake town of Garda with its long promenade lined with cafes, shops and fantastic restaurants.  In the north you will find Trentino Alto-Adige, the place to come for water sports and hiking. In Lombardy you’ll find one of the most talked-about towns, Sirmione, renowned for its thermal springs, Roman ruins, medieval narrow winding lanes and the fairy tale 13th-Century castle of Rocca Scaligera.

The two main areas of Sardinia are Alghero and Cagliari where you will find some fantastic restaurants, lively bars and small nightclubs. Eating out in Sardinia is a real family affair. Restaurants offer the traditional Italian meal of antipasti (appetisers), primi (first courses - usually pasta dishes), secondi (main dishes) and dolci (dessert) and for vegetarians there are many pasta and vegetable dishes.
