The largest of the Italian lakes, Lake Garda enjoys a sheltered position and a warm, balmy climate – a classic combination for a relaxing holiday. Beautiful towns and villages are scattered along the lake shore, all with their own unique charm and stunning scenery.
A holiday on Lake Garda offers an exciting array of opportunities. Families are well catered for, particularly in the resorts of Peschiera and Sirmione which provide easy access to Gardaland, one of the most popular theme parks in Europe. There are lots of lakeside pathways suitable for families with pushchairs, while those who prefer more challenging hiking terrain will be spoilt for choice with all the walking and cycling trails throughout the mountains.
Lake Garda is also an ideal destination for couples, with breathtaking scenery and elegant resorts such as Malcesine, where ancient castles and lakeside palazzos provide the perfect backdrop for a wedding, or just a place to stroll around hand in hand on a romantic break.
For culture buffs, the two great cities of Verona and Venice are within easy reach.
