Situated just a 15-minute train ride from Verona at the southern end of Lake Garda, Peschiera del Garda is one of the lake’s most beautiful destinations. Canals entirely circle the centro storico, and a pretty harbour filled with tiny fishing boats sits at its heart. It’s all wrapped up in huge 16th-century fortress walls, which further add to the beauty of the town.
Despite its small size, Peschiera del Garda manages to offer a surprising range of restaurants, historic attractions and natural sights. History fans will love exploring the ancient walls and visiting the dramatic 19th-century Fort Adietti, while sun-seekers might prefer sipping an espresso by the canals or lounging on the town’s lakefront beach (you’ll find it just a few moments from the centre). There are also lots of great shops and restaurants to choose between, ranging from local craft shops to intimate trattorie. Many of the best restaurants in town offer water views, and menus generally feature fresh fish straight from the lake.
