Destination Review: Lake Garda

Lake Garda



This beautiful lake simply has something for everyone.  My family and I spent one week enjoying the beautiful scenery, food and wine of this region before embarking on our cruise from Venice.

Where to stay

Within a short transfer from Verona and Venice. I would recommend staying along the East bank of the river which is perfect for cycling, walking and relaxing.  The shores of the lake are studded with pretty harbour towns,  with cobbled streets and charming little boutiques not to mention the irresistible gelato shops offering the best ice-cream I have ever tasted, in flavours you can only imagine (raspberry and ginger and lemon and basil were our favourites)



Places to visit

We did have a car but the bus and ferry service allows you to choose a different town each day and go and explore.  The resorts do not feel commercialised although some are busier than others.  We spent a day up in the mountains walking in Tinagle having crossed the Lake by ferry.  You must take a trip to Verona and wander the streets looking for Romeo and Juliet’s balcony.  Don’t miss the breath-taking Amphitheatre in the centre of the city where the opera is performed each evening.

A stay in Lake Garda is the perfect accompaniment to a week cruising round the Eastern Mediterranean from Venice.  Perfecto!
