Lake Garda: Explore a New Side of Italy
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and one of the most idyllic places to visit. It has a little bit of everything, from magical theme parks like the Gardaland and Canevaworld to exquisite wine bars where you can spend a pleasurable evening.
How to Get Around
The easiest way to get around this area is to rent a car – but keep in mind that they are driving on the right hand side here. You can also travel by coach for more affordable fares, but if you want something more romantic, consider taking a cruise either on a boat or one of the ferry services available throughout the day.
Small villages like Lazise and Sirmione give you a taste of small-town life in Italy, while the region also celebrates the Ferragosto holiday every August 15, considered a day-off by the Italians.
