Lake Garda Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Lake Garda

The lake Garda shores of Brescia are the wildest part of the Verona province and the least invaded by holiday makers. A visit round the largest fresh-water basin in Italy might well begin with Sirmione, a city located on the tip of a peninsula famous for its hot springs, the Caves of Catullus and Scaligera Castle (Rocca Scaligera). You could follow this by a trip west, in the direction of Desenzano del Garda, the most lively city in the surrounding area, with all its restaurants, trendy lakeside bars and its huge choice of nightclubs. From there, take the 572 A road and continue your journey past the fields, olive tree-covered hills and all the little villages on the shores of the lake. You will pass through Moniga, Manerba and Saḷ before arriving at Gardone Riviera where you should definitely try and visit Vittoriale, the residence that D'Annunzio had built for himself between 1921 and 1938 and in which he spent the last years of his life. By continuing northwards, you will arrive at Limone, which will form the last stop off point of your trip.
