Lake Garda highlights

Laidback Resorts and Great Watersports

Set against the backdrop of magnificent mountains, Lake Garda is Italy’s largest lake. Colourful houses and laidback resorts line its shores, each with their own unique character.

Sirmione juts out on a promontory from the southern shore and is accessed through a picturesque, 13th-century castle. Desenzano del Garda to the west has a relaxed harbour and wide promenade with lots of pavement cafes overlooking the lake.

To the north is the sheltered bay of Salò, former capital of the Republic under Mussolini – it’s not hard to see why he chose here as an escape. Continuing north the lake narrows until it reaches its point at Riva del Garda by the southern slopes of the Alps. Although watersports are practised all over the lake, the weather conditions here are particularly favourable for sailing and windsurfing.

On Garda Lake’s eastern shore is Malcesine, whose 13th-century castle stands proud on a rock by the water. Further south is the sophisticated promenade of Garda, and close by is Bardolino – famous for its fabulous red wine. Near the lake’s south-east corner is Gardaland, Italy’s most visited theme park.

Booking.com has hundreds of Lake Garda hotels, apartments and B&Bs with direct access to the beaches and shores of this wonderful Italy holiday destination.
