Stunning Lake Garda

Dainty towns awash with vivid colour and clear blue waters edged with Cyprus trees and olive groves, Lake Garda holidays are sure to impress with this spectacular scene.

Lake Garda is not only the vastest lake in Italy, but arguably one of the most beautiful. Set against the alluring Morainic hills and boasting a typically Mediterranean climate, it won’t be long before Lake Garda holidays have you falling in love with this beautiful region.

From its picturesque lemon groves to its fringed palms, this region is not only relaxing, but wonderfully beautiful too. Holidays to Lake Garda also offer some of the best water sports, hiking and skiing opportunities in Italy, ensuring you have the choice of whether to kick back and relax or quench your thirst for adventure.

Lakeside Retreats

With its stunning scenery, adventure sport opportunities and historical attractions, you’ll be spoilt for choice with things to do and places to visit on Lake Garda holidays.

The delightful lakeside town of Riva del Garda is a favourite for holidaymakers, offering dramatic mountain scenery and dazzling Italian sunshine. Stroll the meandering streets or rest in the shade of its quaint waterfront squares. If you’d rather delve into Lake Garda’s rich history, Sirmione is the place to visit. Ideal for couples looking for a romantic break away, this picturesque town offers a glimpse into ancient Roman history with a modern feel.

Night owls should head straight to Desenzano for great nightlife, with countless restaurants and cafes serving up their own brand of traditionally prepared Italian specialities. Whether you’re looking for modern hotels or 5-star luxury, you’ll find somewhere to suit.

Sail Away

Rambling or biking through the surrounding hills of Lake Garda is the ideal way to soak up the scenery at its most resplendent, while those looking to unwind will find the lake’s edges hold endless shady spots to sit back and relax in. Holidays to Lake Garda are rare breaks that can be enjoyed in any number of ways, so jump right in – literally!

If its culture you’re after, Lake Garda has it in spades. Clusters of quaint medieval villages, Venetian style castles and sublime villas are spread throughout the region. The northern position of the lake is also in close proximity to the city of Verona, a destination steeped in literary history and the backdrop to Shakespeare’s most tragic love story, Romeo and Juliet.

Due to the year-round breeze that dances its way across the Lake Garda region, sailing is an attractive option whatever the season, and is a brilliant way to take in the stunning scenery at a tranquil pace on your holidays. Boats are available to rent from the many of the lakeside towns, and are the perfect way to sail the day away.
