Lake Garda Holidays
Lake Garda Holidays - A simply stunning setting
Northern Italy is home to some of the most majestic lakes in Europe, and Lake Garda, the largest of the Italian Lakes simply cannot be beaten in terms of spectacular scenery. The shore on the north is sheltered by dramatic mountains, while the scenery from the western shore, stretching from Limon to Salo, with its olive groves and citrus fruit trees, will seem almost Mediterranean. Lake Garda is home to enchanting towns such as the ancient Roman town of Sirmione and the Italian’s own holiday favourite of Garda.
Activities on the largest lake
During the summer months the lake is the perfect temperature to take part in water sports such as wind-surfing, fishing or sailing. There are regular daytime cruises along the river to the many nearby resorts or you can wait until dark and have a romantic moonlight dinner cruise. Holidays in Lake Garda also boast a list of exciting excursions such as day trips to the romantic city of Venice, and to Verona where you can visit Romeo and Juliet’s shrine and explore the ancient Roman arena. If you are feeling energetic then you can take in the breath-taking scenery and pretty mountain villages with a hiking tour of the Dolomites. Self catering apartments are available in Lake Garda.
Italian resorts for every taste
If you choose to go to Lake Garda, make the most of the area by visiting the towns and villages that are all in close proximity to each other. If you want a vibrant night out in the best restaurants and bars head to Desenzano for a real Italian atmosphere. Sirmione has some excellent bathing beaches and a frequent boat service to other resorts. Torri del Benaco and Maderno are tranquil towns where your cares will disappear as you walk along the waterfronts. If you are wine lover then head to Garda where you can sip some home-made wine while dining on delicious fresh fish.
