Travel to Lake Garda

Travel to Lake Garda
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. Located in the northern part of the country between Venice and Milan, the lake is a major tourist destination and includes several exclusive resorts and hotels along its shore.
 

Sirmione

Located on the south shore of the lake, Sirmione is a particularly busy destination. It is home to a number of restaurants, bars, shopping malls and a market.

 
 

Sulfer Springs

Found at the tip of the peninsula, the sulfur springs supposedly possess healing abilities. These abilities have most often been linked to healing infections involving the head, and specifically the ears.

Gardaland

Built on the eastern shore of the lake, Gardaland is the third-most popular theme park in Europe. It has six roller coasters, including Blue Tornado, Magic Mountain and 50 other attractions.

Scaliger Castle

Built in the 13th century, Scaliger Castle sits on the Verona side of the lake. It now houses the Verona Civic Museum and represents a rare example of medieval port fortification.

Hotels

Lake Garda has several top-rated resorts and hotels available. Riva del Garda on the north shore and Desenzano del Garda on the south are particularly well-rated.
