About Lake Garda

The largest of the Italian Lakes, Lake Garda stretches between the Alps and the Dolomites, embracing a diverse scenery, ranging from low-lying countryside on its southern borders and rising to the north with perpendicular cliffs draped in pine forests. Sheltered in a natural suntrap, the area around Lake Garda enjoys a warm climate in which olive groves and lemon orchards flourish.

Bardolino is one of the best-known Lake Garda resorts, mainly due to the wine made from the grapes grown in the surrounding hillsides. The resort offers excellent accommodation, while the attractive and lively traffic-free centre is home to numerous bars, restaurants and smart shops.

From the southern banks of Lake Garda lies the charming town of Desenzano, gazing out over to the Alps. A network of piazze, al fresco cafés and boutiques contrast beautifully with its three large beaches.

Once a fishing village, Garda has become a colourful holiday resort, much favoured by Italian holidaymakers and opera fans due to its proximity to Verona, as well as being greatly appreciated by wine connoisseurs who make frequent trips to neighbouring vineyards in Bardolino.

Gardone Riviera
From its lush gardens a path snakes through densely wooded arbours of the Acquapazza valley. Gardone Riviera's lakeside promenade is lined with intellectual cafés and artistic trattorias offering the gracious charms of a bygone era.

Set on the western shore of Lake Garda, Gargnano has been favoured by the rich and famous for many years and today this can be seen in the fine villas, palaces and beautiful gardens which still remain. The old town of Gargnano on the lake shore is dominated by a main square and a pretty small port.

The name Lazise comes from the Latin word 'laceses' and means village at the Lake. Lazise has a very beautiful old town with narrow streets and picturesque places, and a harbour which is imbedded in the centre. When looking at the six towers of the Scaligero Castle and the city walls, it is very obvious that the town has a medieval origin.

Limone, as its name suggests, alludes to the first lemon orchards planted in Europe. It is a magical place with old fishermens houses, narrow winding streets and lemon groves dominating the shores.

Malcesine, one of the most charming towns on Garda's eastern shore, nestled by olive groves and sage coloured hills. A funicular climbs up Monte Baldo where scenic walks can be enjoyed in summer on its famous ski slopes.

Peschiera del Garda
Steeped in history Peschiera del Garda attracts many visitors every year, including thousands of pilgrims that come to visit the many religious buildings such as the 16th century Sanctuary of Madonna del Frassino (Our Lady of Ash). The Laghetto del Frassino, meaning little lake of Ash is a beautiful nature reserve where it is possible to be at one with nature. The area between Peschiera and Sirmione is a region called Lugana and is well-known for its production of wine with the same name, which can be found in the many restaurants in the area.

Riva del Garda
Riva, sheltered by Monte Rochetta and exuding a gentle and unhurried atmosphere, characterised by a medieval old town with one foot in a picturesque fishing harbour and the other raised to the 14th century castle.

Salò is a much sought after resort amongst informed cognoscenti offering an exciting choice of bars, cafés and inventive restaurants, specialising in regional dishes.

Set on a narrow promontory on the southern shore of Lake Garda, Sirmione is prized for its strategic l
