Stunning Lake Garda

An absolutely magnifico blue sky, hot Italian summer day was a perfect way to venture to Sirmione on Lake Garda. Another picture perfect location!

On arrival we boarded two speed boats for a tour around the beautiful lake.




The scenery was breathtaking, with brilliant blue water, 2000 year old Roman ruins on the hill and magnificent real estate on the hill sides.


The girls enjoyed a burst of speed as they re-approached the castle and finishing point of the tour.


We then wandered the narrow lane-ways to the Lido Public where the girls experienced the pebbled beaches of Europe. That certainly did not detract them from leaping into the crystal blue water of the lake. In true Aussie style, albeit not a footy, a ball was the entertainment of the swim whilst balancing on the rocks below us.

A stunning way to refresh topped only by the giant sized gelato to followed the swim!


Affectionately dubbed “Tour de gelato” it took no time to source more of the most amazing flavours of gelato we have tasted!

The group then wandered back to the bus to head to the Festival farewell lunch, via a slight detour to collect yours truly, who was left behind at a bathroom stop! (When I realised the bus had gone I was contemplating which of the magnificent hillside villas overlooking the lake to stay in…not so sure home would appreciate the extended stay, however!!)

Lunch was back at the same venue as the welcome dinner. A delicious menu of lasagne, meat & veggies and chocolate ice cream dessert was served.

The choirs all mixed to exchange souvenirs and our girls taught all choirs a fun song, there was a formal presentation of Festival plaques and many thank yous were made.

​Back to the hotel for a quick change into formal wear for the final singing of the tour – a Mass with the Chinese choir.

A fabulous sound to finish an incredible experience. Much emotion was expressed at the end with the realisation the tour is fast coming to an end.


Another amazing day comes to an end. The girls are tired but enjoying their last days in Verona.
