If I say holiday, what will you think about? Relaxation or sport? Shopping or food and wine? If you are rather hesitant and you don’t know what to choose, don’t worry. You don’t need to choose. Lake Garda gives you the opportunity to live all these things just by falling you with all the suggestions it can provide you with, from north to south.
Some numbers: with a total area of 370 square km, Lake Garda is the biggest of the Italian lakes and it is 346 meters deep at its maximum.
Its climate? Mild, Mediterranean. Its greenery is rich and fragrant. Lemon trees, olive trees, vineyards and potherbs. Palm trees and graceful cypresses are its perfects framework, creating a poetic landscape that inspired writers from every era: from Goethe to Kafka and Mann, from famous Virgilio to Dante.
SPORTS ON LAKE GARDA
From scuba diving to simple strolls, maybe together with your loyal four-legged friend.
FOOD AND WINE
If you rather prefer another “sport” activity, that is good food, Lake Garda won’t make you disappointed once again.
Typical products and gourmet dishes you can savour in many restaurants, taverns and facilities where to taste delicacies like lake fish, extra virgin olive oil, citrus fruits (that remind us of Mediterranean climate and tastes).
Or also mountain cheeses, cold cuts, carne salada (on the Trentino shores), honey, truffles and game… you will meet again that unique mountain taste.
MUSEUMS AND CASTLES
Lake Garda is culture as well: from Riva del Garda to Peschiera, loads of museums are waiting for you. The well-known Mart in Rovereto, the Stilt Houses Museum in the Ledro Valley, the Vittoriale degli Italiani in Gardone Riviera, the City Museum in Riva del Garda. And also strongholds and castles narrating the past echoing in every stone and embrasure with their grandeur.
Among the most enchanting landmarks it’s worth mentioning the Grotte di Catullo in Sirmione, Palazzo Pretorio and the Terme Romane in Riva del Garda. But every alley and square, door and historical bridge we meet all around Lake Garda is able to grab the gaze of those thousands of tourists every year choose to spend their holidays on one (or all the three) lake shore. Lombardia, Veneto and Trentino.

DISCOVER IT, LIVE IT, LOVE IT
Three regions, the same lake, the same soul. Benaco Lake (the stress is on the “a” as Latin used to have) is waiting for you with its deep blue colour. Excursions, ferryboat trips, mountain huts, golden beaches and green nature brushstrokes. Lake Garda is much more than a holiday destination, it’s a place to live!
