Nestled amidst the lakes of northern Italy, within a brief distance from both the city of Brescia and Milan, lies Lake Garda. The largest lake in Italy is shared between two regions, that of Lombardy, Brescia and Veneto, Verona. This picturesque lake offers a picture postcard landscape and a Mediterranean ambience where rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees meet mountains and lakes. The area is equally known for its mountain regions with the Camonica Valley, the Trompia Valley and the Sabbia Valley all competing for the title of most beautiful. Spread amongst these hills and lakes are rivers and castles and standing at the centre of it all is the proud city of Brescia – a renowned centre of art.

Towns To Visit On The Brescia Side

Sirmione – The Brescian side of the lake begins at Sirmione which has been famous since ancient times for its health-giving spa water. The peninsula on which it stands juts out into the water about 4km and is one of the most enchanting places on the lake.

Desenzano del Garda – Stands in the centre of a wide bay and is sheltered behind a semi-circle of hills. It is one of the best known tourist towns on the lake and also a famous sailing and bathing centre.

Lonato – Five kilometres inland from Desenzano , Lonato is dominated by a large medieval fortress which has a magnificent view over Garda.

Valtenesi – Is the hilly area of vineyards and olive plantations that slope down to the lake between the bays of Padenghe and Salò. It is made up of seven districts – Padenghe, Moniga, Manerba, San Felice, Puegnago, Polpenazze and Soiano.

Padenghe – Like many of the villages in Valtenesi, Padenghe is overlooked by a castle, this one dates back to the 10th and 15th century.

Moniga – Is a very elegant village, at its edge stands a castle with round towers and crenellations which was built as a defence against the Hungarian tribe invasions in the 10th century.

Manerba del Garda – Is spread over one of the most outstanding promontories on Lake Garda, known as ‘Rocca di Manerba’ on the top of which the remains of a difensive medieval settlement have been brought to light.

San Felice – The peninsular of San Felice is also very beautiful with Garda Island just in front of it.

Salò – Is an elegant and popular holiday resort sitting in a marvellous position on the bay of Salò where it is protected from northerly winds.

Gardone Riviera – With its lakeside walk, large villas and grand hotels, Gardone Riviera preserves a charm of times past, it has been a famous destination for international tourism since the end of the 19th century.

Toscolano Maderno – Divided by the river Toscolano, Maderno and Toscolano are popular tourist centres loved by sportsmen and sailing enthusiasts. Their shoreline is the longest on Garda and behind it lies a 9 hole golf course.

Gargnano – The strong winds that always blow in this area makes Gargnano a well-loved location by sailors. Each year in September the town hosts the most important lake regatta in Europe the ‘Centomiglia’.

Limone – Thanks to its excellent climate, one of the mildest and healthiest on the lake, citrons and lemons, from where the village takes its name, have been grown here since time immemorabile.

Towns To Visit On The Verona Side

garda7_peschiera-del-gardaPeschiera del Garda – It is situated on the southern part of the lake where the river Mincio begins. It is one of the most panoramic places and has always been regarded as a crossroads of primary importance due to its strategic position. Peschiera del Garda is one of the most renowned tourist destinations on Lake Garda. With over 40 hotels, 10 of the largest and best-equipped campsites in the Riviera degli Ulivi, bed and breakfasts and apartments, the town responds to the varied needs of the visitor. Today the ramparts and alleyways in the centre host shops, restaurants, and bars. Along the shores of the lake, there are facilities for watersports and many game parks such as Gardaland, Movieland, Safari Parks, Water Parks, and thermal spas. At a distance of 2 kilometres from Peschiera, there is the Santuario della Madonna del Frassino, a monument of national importance. It dates back to the 1500s and inside there are 10 chapels embellished with remarkable frescoes.

Lazise – Overlooking the Garda lake, in a position of rare beauty, Lazise has preserved amazing memories of a distant past. History and enchantment mark the atmosphere that one breathes arriving at Lazise, one of the most ancient Italian communes, situated in a privileged position on the lake, the little town has always been a sought-after holiday destination, as shown by the splendid elegant villas along the lakeside and in the nearby villages of Colà and Pacengo.

Therefore, it was a natural destiny for Lazise to become a renowned resort in the modern age. Lazise’s accommodation offers about 40 comfortable hotels and ten large and well equipped camping sites, but also sport and leisure facilities, water parks, music clubs and good food, for a cuisine based on the excellent local produce.

In memory of its Medieval period, Lazise preserves the magnificent castle, towers and the walls built by the rulers of Verona, the Della Scala family, which encircle the old town centre. The small port has the fine building of the Customs House, built by Venice to control trade exchanges on the lake, today the site of many important cultural events.

Bardolino – In the surrounding morainic hills, an excellent red wine aptly called Bardolino is produced. A well-known tourist destination that was once contented by emperors, monarchs and noble families. Bardolino, a small borough on the Eastern shores of Lake Garda, is noted above all for the important red wine of the same name. However the “laughing eye of the lake”, as the town is called due to its position along the lake’s shores, is a tourist centre also famous for its scenery, Mediterranean climate, and gastronomy.

Today Bardolino boasts many varied accommodation choices to satisfy every need: over fifty hotels, bed and breakfasts, and tourist complexes as well as ten large campsites.

There are many opportunities for those who love sports for an active holiday: the lake and hills are the ideal gym for outdoor activities. We should also note that Bardolino annually hosts the most important international triathlon event in Italy.

shutterstock_260716625Garda – A picturesque old town centre, luxuriant vegetation and a romantic view over the lake: this is Garda, the small XII-century town that shares its name with a lake that had been called Benaco up until that time. Anything may happen in Garda and in its gulf, that attracts thousands every year as they have done for centuries, since the times when many illustrious guests were similarly enchanted and seduced looking at the breathtaking views from the promontory of Punta San Vigilio, with its little old church, the statue of San Giovanni Nepomuceno, the patron saint of sailors, and the mermaid bay.

Today Garda is a much frequented holiday destination with a huge accommodation offer: about sixty hotels, several residences and a modern conference hall. The alley ways of the historical centre, where once only fishermen lived, today are packed with shops and restaurants, even though the fishing tradition is still very much alive. The lake offers many activities for sport lovers: sailing, windsurf and swimming, of course, and other disciplines in contact with nature, such as mountain bike, golf, tennis, horse riding or free-climbing.
