Inspiring, well-attended performances around this spectacular Italian lake PLUS the opportunity to perform at Italy's largest theme park!

Lake Garda is the largest of the Italian lakes and a favourite for school groups. There are several small, lively villages surrounding the lake, which draw in excellent audiences, bringing the best out of your young musicians. A number of outdoor venues prove very popular with the many tourists in the area and it is also possible to perform in local schools. We can even arrange for you to perform as part of a music festival at Italy's largest theme park, Gardaland! The beautiful, historic city of Verona is also within easy reach for a day trip and offers a number of alternative performance venues.

After working in the Travel Industry for over 30 years I have had the great fortune to work in many destinations and visit some amazing places. Travel is not just an experience – it is memories & knowledge. I love having the opportunity to create those memories for our groups. – Sarah Newman Music Tours Operations Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Do it!!! It’s our 3rd tour with Halsbury. They’ve all been good but this was the best. The hotel in Koenigswinter was the best any of the seven staff who went had used on a school trip by an absolute mile. The scenery, venues and everything else are amazing, and the coach journey isn’t too bad either. — Fernwood School , July 2018
