On your last full day in Italy, we recommend the spectacular vistas from Monte Baldo – the highest point on the lake. The Monte Baldo cable car leaves from the town of Malcesine and takes you up to 2,000 metres, rotating slowly during the climb to offer a complete panorama of the region. Once at the top, enjoy a drink in the cafe, and try to spot your resort amid the stunning view that unfolds before you. Be sure to arrive early to beat the queues, as this is one of Lake Garda’s biggest attractions. Afterwards, head back down to Malcesine, and finish the day soaking up the lakeside ambience for one last evening.
