As the tourist season winds down and tranquillity returns to Garda in autumn, it's time for the locals of the Italian Alps to come out and play. And play they most certainly do, in the shape of the huge Bardolino Wine Festival, an absolute must-visit event every year for those in the know, and one of Europe's best-kept secrets. The weather is still great at this time of year, and you don't have to be Italian, or a wine connoisseur, to join in. It's huge fun with concerts, musicals, street food stalls, guided tastings, bands, parades and theatrical events.

The Festival, now in its 89th year, caters for all palates and celebrates the award-winning local Bardolino wine, a light, fruity red or rosé made from Corvina and Rondinella grapes and a favourite with light dishes and salads. Wine is served by the glass and is very moderately priced. A cultural programme runs alongside the wine-tasting and varies from year to year but includes a variety of musical and artistic entertainment.
