You find Limone on the north-west side of the spectacular Lake Garda. A quaint and peaceful town, it sits at the base of towering cliffs, which keep it sheltered from the winds. With secluded beaches and pretty harbours, holidays in Limone are perfect for families and couples who want to get away from it all and enjoy some quality downtime together.
You’ll get a good sense of the town’s medieval past by wandering through its narrow streets, dotted with lemon-coloured houses. Despite the area’s fame for growing excellent lemons, Limone’s name is more of a happy coincidence: the name stems from an ancient Latin word meaning ‘boundary’. Lake Garda is shared by three Italian provinces and sits on the boundary of Brescia. With plenty to explore and a plethora of attractions within easy access, you can make your Limone holidays exactly what you want them to be!
Porto Vecchio is the little harbour in the heart of the old town with lots of shops and terrace cafes dotted around it. Stop for a spot of lunch and admire the beautiful views of the lake. The churches around here have some stunning frescos, so make sure you stop by. Take a tour of the old lemon and olive groves, and visit the local oil press to see olive oil made in the traditional way. For a relaxing day in the Italian sunshine, head to the pebble beach by the lake. A boat tour of Lake Garda is a great way to see the area and soak up the scenery.
Whether you want a crisp, snow-strewn break or a sun-bleached summer, Limone holidays are wonderful at any time of year. Book your holiday in the spring or autumn to enjoy mild temperatures and little rainfall.
Verona Villafranca Airport is just under an hour and a half’s drive from the resort.
