Holiday information

 

Majestic Lake Garda

On the western shores of Lake Garda, elegant, liberty-style villas are backed by olive-clad hills and lemon trees, creating a distinctly Mediterranean atmosphere. Paddle steamers criss-cross the lake, and cable cars rise into the surrounding mountains affording spectacular, far-reaching views of the glittering waters below.
With three nights in the idyllically situated village of Villa di Gargnano, you are perfectly placed to discover the many charms of Italy’s largest lake – on foot, by boat, or even from the comfort of your sun lounger on the hotel beach.
 
 

Itinerary

  • Trento to Villa di Gargnano: 1.5hrs by taxi
    Today begins with a direct taxi journey to the shores of Lake Garda, where the welcoming Hotel du Lac is located.

    You may like to spend the rest of the day relaxing on the hotel beach, or exploring the village of Villa di Gargnano, idyllically situated between the glittering waters of the lake and terraced hillsides of orchards and olive groves. For something more energetic, take a look at our suggestions for days 8-9 below.
  • Choice of walks from Gargnano: 7km to 16km
    On the following days we recommend exploring the area by boat and on foot – we provide notes for three very different walks (pay locally for all transport). There is also a picturesque 18-hole golf course nearby, and the beautiful and historic city of Verona is just a short journey away.

    Malcesine & Monte Baldo: 7km, 2hrs
    The first is a classic route which involves catching the ferry or hydrofoil across the lake to Malcesine, and then take the revolving cable car to the summit of Monte Baldo. You then enjoy a short but thrilling walk around the mountain's grassy saddle, admiring the 360-degree panorama of the lake and surrounding peaks. In spring, the slopes are covered with peonies, anemones and lilies.

    Torri del Benaco: 12km, 3.5hrs
    This easy walk starts from the pretty village of Torri del Benaco, complete with castle and attractive harbour, and takes you into the foothills, via a small site of prehistoric rock engravings. At the pleasant village of Albisano enjoy the marvellous views back over the lake, before descending slowly back to the centre of town.

    To the Gardone Riviera: 16km, 5hrs
    Our third route heads south across a low panoramic hillside and via a peaceful valley dotted with ruined mills to reach the Belle Epoque village of Gardone. If you have time on arrival, it is well worth visiting Il Vittoriale, an Art Nouveau villa that was the last home of writer Gabriele d’Annunzio, or the village’s superb botanical gardens (pay locally in both cases) before catching the boat or bus back to Gargnano.
