THE ITALIAN LAKES
There’s a long journey ahead of the Grand Tourists as they say au revoir to Cannes and France as they head on to Italy. Their destination in this programme is the small scenic town of Stresa on Lake Maggiore in the Italian Lakes. En route, the coach stops off at one of the glitziest states in the world, Monaco, famous for its Grand Prix circuit, the Monte Carlo Casino and Royal Palace, home of the glamorous Grimaldi dynasty. Once they reach the Italian lakes the tourists have a break from the coach for another form of transport, a boat. They take a ride around the properly scenic Lake Maggiore, where, scenery aside, one of the highlights is a stop off at Villa Taranto, famous for it’s fabulously manicured gardens. They manage to lose their boat captain at one point but, of course, Francis saves the day!
