TY Lake Garda Tour
22 Apr 2022
This Easter some of the TY’s went to Italy to visit Lake Garda, Verona and Venice! On the first day we had a bright and early meeting at the airport before boarding the flight and arriving in Milan. We then got the bus to Serimone and went on exciting Bertoldi speed boats on Lake Garda while listening to some music. After we dried off from the splashes, we got the bus to Verona and went on a walk to see Juliet’s house but unfortunately Romeo was nowhere to be found. After that we went to an ancient Roman amphitheatre and finished the day with bowling. We finally checked into our hotel and all slept very well after the 4am start and long day. Day 2 began with breakfast in the hotel and then a bus and a water taxi into Venice. When we got to Venice we went to the Murano Glass factory (where some people did some damage of the shopping nature not breaking glass! Following on from that after we sampled some carbonara and pizza, we went on a walking tour of Venice where Ms Nolan was given a red rose from a secret admirer in Saint Marks Square. We finished off our day in Venice with a beautiful, peaceful gondola ride around the canals of Venice. Again everyone slept well (except for a few giggles) because of the long day. The next morning we went to Gardaland! We each got to go on the rides. They were thrilling and so much fun! Some were even brave enough to get on rollercoasters with the screaming teachers! We finished off our day with a spot of shopping in a mall and then we got the bus to a Medieval show and restaurant. Overall it was a rollercoaster of a day!
