Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy and one of the most important holiday destinations in Italy.
The Lake landscape, surrounded by mountains, offers a variety of experiences.

Lake Garda is frequented all year round and offers different attractions according to the season: sport and spa centres, tours to discover the inland, wine production tradition, concerts and shows, events in the stunning city of Verona or in the Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera.

Sirmione, known all over the world for its roman and medieval ruins and hot spring water, is a small jewel in the southern part of Lake Garda, its historical centre, reacheable by a small bridge,  is situated on the northern part of the peninsula and keeps its medieval charm in its walking area made by irregular small streets.

Peschiera, the “pentagon shaped fortress-city” is an architecture, art and culture jewel, recognised by the UNESCO as part of the World Heritage Sites list. Its walls built in the second half of the XVI° century are an important example of military architecture. In the pedestrian area of Peschiera there are small shops, restaurants and the well known  Piazza D’Armi, now Piazza Ferdinando di Savoia, famous meeting point all year round.

Equally beautiful are the landscapes and places that are located around Sirmione, both along the coastal strip of Lake Garda and in the hinterland where wonderful and lesser-known agricultural landscapes characterize the territory of the Morainic Hills.


Lake Garda is situated in a strategic position to plan tours and excursions and reach the most famous Lombardy cities like Milano, Mantova, Brescia, Bergamo or the stunning Veneto cities like Venice. You can easily reach all of these cities by train or public transport from Desenzano or Peschiera del Garda.

There is such a vaste variety of activities that is impossibile to discover all of them in a short term stay.

Shopping addicts are advised: there are many little shops in the city centres where you will find the authentic Made in Italy products, or you can take advantage of the big shopping centres just a few km away from the lake coast!


The ease of road, water, highway and rail transport allows you to reach many destinations of extraordinary beauty during the day to make your holiday on Lake Garda unique and more.
