with Charles Mitchell

Guests will be picked up from Verona airport and taken to Hotel Gardesana. Painting tuition will take place around the hotel each morning and late afternoon. There is a lovely small harbour next to the hotel which is wonderful for painting and also great painting opportunities looking over the lake.   The hotel is situated in an ideal location within the beautiful town of Torri del Benaco.  The ferry taking people around the lake stops just next to the hotel.  There are lots of delightful places to have a light snack lunch or full restaurant meal overlooking the lake.  The afternoon can be spent continuing with your work, shopping in the traffic- free main street, swimming in the lake or exploring other towns around the lake by ferry. Isola del Garda can be reached by ferry each Thursday afternoon. Isola del Garda is the home of the Borghese Cavazza family who have opened their elegant neo-gothic Venetian style Villa and beautiful English gardens to visitors. Each evening guests will meet to have dinner on the balcony of the hotel or a nearby restaurant. This is a good location for non-painting partners as there is so much to do. On Saturday morning guests will be transported to Verona to stay in 4 star Hotel Accademia which is located within easy walking distance of the Arena.  In the evening guests will  attend the opera "Aida" which is a totally memorable experience.

Wonderful week rounded off by a wonderful trip to Verona and the opera. The hotel in Verona was a really excellent choice - very central and accessible, bar very accommodating when we were late back from the opera and still feeling very elated. We loved Torri and the hotel was beautifully situated - lots of interest for the painter. Charles was always very helpful on the painting part of the holiday.  We will be booking again next year”
