Gardone Riviera Holidays

Gardone is an elegant resort on the west banks of Lake Garda. This peaceful town boasts a lovely lakeside promenade, bordered by immaculate flowerbeds and lined with charming cafes and trattorie. Spend your afternoons on one of the many benches that line the promenade, watching the world go by with a latte or cappuccino. 

A short walk uphill from the lake will take you to Gardone Sopra, the historic centre. Here, you’ll find the eccentric II Vittoriale, a complex of squares, gardens and water features with some of the town’s best views over the lake. Nearby, the botanic Heller Gardens – one of the leading attractions in Lake Garda – are waiting to be explored. Established between 1910 and 1971, the gardens showcase exotic plants and species from around the world, with fountains and works of modern art dotted between the greenery.

For those wanting to explore further, a regular ferry service will take you to Lake Garda’s eastern towns, and it’s also possible to visit other west-shore resorts by bus.

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.
