Lake Garda

Lake Garda

Colourful boats bobbing on blue shimmering waters, dreamy villages, ancient castles, fragrant vineyards and olive groves – that’s Lake Garda in a pretty, little nutshell.

Located half way between Brescia and Verona, and Venice and Milan, the largest freshwater lake in Italy was originally formed by glaciers. Situated on the eastern shore is lovely Malcesine, with its striking Scaligero Castle. From here you can catch the boat to many of the lake resorts including Riva and Limone.

The capital of the lake is vibrant Garda Town, situated in a huge sheltered bay with a backdrop of dramatic hills and mountains. Dine under the trees at one of the many delightful lakeside restaurants, or browse the stylish shops.

Scenic boat trip on Lake Garda

Scenic boat trip on Lake Garda

Truly the jewel of the Italian lakes, Lake Garda is best viewed from the lovely azure waters. Sprinkled with lots of little islands, there are five that are most enchanting of all, the largest being Isola del Garda with vibrant Garda Town, the capital of the lake. Sitting pretty on the eastern shore lies lovely Bardolino, famous for its home-grown wine, olive oil and the striking Church of San Zeno; one of the most beautiful Carolingian churches in Italy.

A relaxing boat cruise around the famous lake offers the perfect chance to sit back and take in the stunning views. Just think, shores dotted with pastel-coloured villas, hillsides full of olive and lemon groves, and the towering snow-capped mountains in the distance.

Verona

Verona

With famous star-crossed lovers, bridges arching over the glistening waters of the Adige River and engraved 'lovelock' padlocks clasping onto every railing in the city, Verona is one amorous place!

Just a short journey from the lovely Lake Garda, a trip to the compact city Verona would not be complete without visiting the iconic Juliet’s Balcony at La Casa di Giulietta; the House of Juliet, whose exterior is completely covered in hand-written notes from visitors asking for guidance in love. Oh if walls could talk…!

Spanning across the sea of terracotta rooftops, which plait their way around the many well-preserved Roman sites, don’t miss the famous amphitheatre. Built in the first century, it is still very much in use today and provides the venue for the famous summer opera festival each year.

Venice

Venice

The stunning city of Venice harbours a wealth of artistic and architectural wonders, hardly changing for 600 years. Although now very much a popular place for tourists, it still retains its romantic charm and appeal.

Sirmione

Sirmione

Edging, tight-rope style, along a narrow peninsula that thrusts into the southern section of Lake Garda, the fortified town of Sirmione stuns with its come-hither coastline, lovely thermal baths and historic fortress.

Don’t miss the chance to discover the awe-inspiring views from the 13th-century Scaligero Castle, with its impossibly turquoise moat, and Grotte di Catullo, the curious ruins of a Roman Villa shrouded within a huge olive grove.

All cultured out? Why not soak up the Italian sunshine on one of the beautiful beaches, or settle down with an Aperol in a quaint piazza? Both are prime people-watching real estate! Back to top
