Limone Holidays

Perched on the north coast of Lake Garda, Limone sits against a mountainous backdrop in a secluded cove surrounded by olive groves. True to the town’s name, Limone, meaning lemon in Italian, was once a renowned lemon-growing area and dotted around the town are remains of old lemon houses – the 18th-century El Castel lemon house is must-visit and boasts lovely views. 

At the heart of this charming Italian town is the small harbour, lined with plenty of places to eat and drink while admiring the lake views. It’s from here you can explore the town’s narrow lanes, with more cafes and restaurants, as well as small boutique shops. The picturesque promenade is a lovely place to take an evening stroll. 

The town’s streets offer plenty of walking opportunities, as well as ventures up in the mountains behind Limone. The harbour allows for easy ferry connections to Riva and Torbole if you fancy exploring.

Tipping

Whilst tipping isn’t embedded into Italian culture it is always appreciated as an acknowledgement of good service. Nowadays people generally round up a bill in a bar or cafe and leave 5-10% extra on a restaurant bill. Taxi bills are usually also rounded up.
 
On guided tours/excursions it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
 
On small group escorted tours, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation the driver and guide at the end of the tour.
