Bardolino Holidays

Bardolino holidays take you to the south east shore of Lake Garda, in the north of Italy. Here you’ll find an idyllic little town steeped in history and framed by a spectacular natural setting.

Spend your days relaxing on the shores of Lake Garda or enjoying boat trips and excursions across to the other towns. Its harbour is full of luxury yachts, while those wanting to get active can sail, water ski, jet ski, kayak and more. Head into the surrounding hills for hiking and mountain biking, or simply sit with a coffee in a pavement café as you watch the area’s stylish residents come and go.

Foodies can head into the countryside for vineyard tours and wineries, while Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, is just a 40 minute drive away. Other towns to visit along the lake are Garda, a celebrity hotspot, and Lazise, where you’ll find historic stone architecture.

Lake Garda is traditionally a summer getaway, with hotels usually welcoming guests between April and October. Temperatures hover around 25°C in July and August – and this is when Lake Garda is at its liveliest. However, the climate in Lake Garda is very mild in spring and autumn, with temperatures rarely ducking beneath 20°C. Fancy avoiding the busiest months? Consider visiting in May, June or September – you’ll avoid the crowds and still be treated to warm weather.

Tipping

You don’t have to leave a tip in Italy – most Italians don’t tip for restaurant meals, bar drinks, taxi rides or hair and beauty treatments. However if you do leave a tip, you might receive quicker service.
