Spend your first day cruising around the lake via ferry and soaking up the vibrant Mediterranean atmosphere of the many lakeside towns. Typically, you can expect to find narrow cobbled lanes, intimate local shops and stunning lakefront piazzas, although Malcesine’s beautifully preserved Scaligeri castle, and Gardone’s beautiful villas are among the top sights. Be sure to spend a morning bargain-hunting at one of Lake Garda's numerous alfresco markets, and perhaps pre-book a wine tour to learn about the secrets of wine-making while sampling some of the lake's finest produce.
