From £850




Here is your chance to organize your own group holiday with the help of the young ladies who run it and help you create a unique event.


The Hotel

Palazzo Novello is a boutique hotel in a Renaissance palace at the end of a street in the suburban town of Montichiari. It is here that you can experience an authentic Italian atmosphere.


Palazzo Novello is centrally located as regards the cities of Verona, Brescia, Cremona and Mantua, just 20 minutes from Lake Garda, between the Brescia est and Desenzano del Garda (BS) exits of the A4 motorway. Internal car-park available. It is ideally located for tourist, cultural and wine and food itineraries, besides guided visits to beautiful Lake Garda and the nearby cities of Verona, Mantua, Bergamo and Cremona.


Set in the city’s old town, this genteel historic hotel is 2.7 km from Velodromo di Montichiari and 7.4 km from Brescia Airport Gabriele D’Annunzio.


From here you can explore what Brescia has to offer; the museums and churches; even enjoy a cookery course in a very modern school with world famous chefs. It is a great place for you and your group to spend a week or two together. It is necessary though, for someone in your group to grab the opportunity and make it happen. All we can do is help!
