What sights can I visit in Lake Garda?
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy so there is plenty to see and do whilst you are there. Here are just a few attractions not to be missed: Sirmione and Castello Scaligeri take a tour of the castle and climb the tower to enjoy panoramic views of the lake and town.
Head to the southeast shore of the lake and visit Bardolino, the backdrop is less rugged than the north, and the towns are still pretty and surrounded by olive trees.
In the north is Malcesine, with its own Castello Scaligero, wander through the narrow streets that climb up the hillside to the castle, whose ramparts drop directly into the lake on the other side. The castle is made more beautiful as it is surrounded by mountains that rise dramatically from the lake.
Visit Vittoriale d’Italia, a stunning Art Deco villa set in extensive gardens. It is worth spending the day here, take a tour of the house and then explore the gardens, museum, amphitheatre and mausoleum of the flamboyant owner poet Gabriele d’Annunzio.
