A beach on Lake Garda

There are plenty of beaches around the lake. The most recommended ones are in Veneto, where the sand is fine and the water not too deep (ideal for children).

Lake Garda Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Lake Garda

Lying between the pre-alps and the Po Plain, the Garda Lake stretches out over three regions: Trentino, Lombardy and Veneto. Olive Tree Coast is the name given to the Venetian shore. The lake's presence makes the climate more mild, and Mediterranean vegetation can even be seen growing on the surrounding hills, which is very unusual for a nothern region. If you head north via the road that runs along Garda Lake, you will find, on the right, row upon row of terraces cultivated with vineyards and olive trees and, on the left, a succession of lakeside villages: Peschiera, with its 16th century Venetian castle; Lazise, built around the port and encircled by the wall of the Veronese castle; and Bardolino, which is famous for its Garda wine. If you continue right to the border with Trentino, you will arrive in Malcesine. From there you can take a cable car to Mount Baldo, at the summit of which you can enjoy a splendid panoramic view of the lake.
