LakeGarda Travel Guide

by our Italy expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanThe largest of Italy’s lakes, the glacially formed Lake Garda is an elongated shape, widening out at the southern end. Northwards, the Brenner Pass provides a magnificent Alpine entrance to a spectacular region that has long been somewhere for weary city-dwellers to restore their spirits (wealthy Romans built villas and spas here). The many islands, such as Isola del Garda, and plentiful ferry services mean you can sightsee at ease on the water or, more energetically, trek or climb in the mountains. Vineyards, olive & lemon trees and abundant flowers – oleanders, bougainvillaea and magnolias – add scent and colour to any stroll. There are a dozen splendid golf courses around the lake, sailing and water-sports facilities galore, and both Venice (130km) and the ancient town of Verona (30km) are easy excursions.
