Lake Garda

Overview

Among villages, nature and water sports

There are countless ways to enjoy a holiday on the shores of Lake Garda. This stretch of water – the largest in Italy – between Lombardy, Veneto and Trentino-South Tyrol stretches between high mountains and green plains, making its way among villages steeped in history, ancient ruins and castles, and places where you can enjoy outdoor sports and marvel at breathtaking views.

You can treat yourself to a stroll through some of the most beautiful and popular villages in Italy, such as Sirmione, with its Scaligero Castle and the Grottoes of Catullus, and Desenzano, with its splendid Roman villa featuring colourful mosaics. In Peschiera del Garda, you can explore a fortress town surrounded by water, while in Limone del Garda it feels as though time stands still. Impressive, eccentric and bursting with history and art, the Vittoriale degli Italiani, a villa-monument once home to Italian poet Gabriele d’Annunzio, is a must-see in Gardone Riviera.

For children, as well as adults, looking for entertainment, the Gardaland amusement park is the perfect solution. The lake is also a paradise for water sports enthusiasts: from kitesurfing and windsurfing to canyoning and diving, it is impossible to ever get bored!
