The beautiful temperate climate of Lake Garda makes enjoying the stunning vista of Benaco, the largest lake in Italy, all the more enjoyable. This beautiful alpine region lies between the romantic city of Venice and the chic city of Milan in northern Italy.
The fairytale-like town of Lake Garda sits at the bottom of snow-capped mountains and the medieval structures like the ancient fortified town of Sirmoine and Scaliger castle are easy to pick out amongst clusters of traditional Mediterranean style houses.
Visitors to Lake Garda will be spoilt for choice with the diverse landscape here. There are dense alpine forests, majestic snowy peaks, pristine pebble beaches and green landscaped parks which give way to the clear water of the lake. There’s a whole variety of ways to enjoy these great outdoor spaces too.
You can take to the lake with watersports like sailing and windsurfing, appreciate the view by climbing or paragliding, ski the snowy slopes and explore the peaceful forests by mountain bike or horseback. And when you’re done exploring and your muscles are worn with the memories of your adventure, you can find blissful relaxation at the Garda Thermal Park which features two large thermal lakes which are naturally heated to the perfect temperature of 33-34 C°. Around the edges of the lake geysers, cascades, fountains and Jacuzzi’s have been added to help ease away tensions and stresses.
Lake Garda is a destination where you can sample many of the delights of the landscape. Olive tree farms, vineyards and citrus groves make up a large part of the landscape and as a result you can taste freshly baked bread dipped in light olive oil, sip chilled Limoncino liqueur and relax with a glass of fine Merlot, Cabernet and Nosiola.
Scratch the surface just a little and you’ll quickly realise that Lake Garda has something to satisfy a variety of curiosities; museums, open air antique markets, natural parks, archaeological sites and historical sightseeing are in abundance. With so much on offer, it’s clear to see why Lake Garda is such a desirable destination for a cruise and stay holiday experience.
