Top Tourist Attractions & Places to Visit From Lake Garda
Riva del Garda is one of the many charming towns that dot Lake Garda. Located on the northern shore, this picturesque retreat is surrounded by imposing mountains on one side and sparkling blue water on the other. While this is a great location from which to explore the lake, it is also an attraction in itself. On our trips to Lake Garda, we’ll have time to immerse ourselves in Italian culture as we stroll along the winding streets and beautiful waterfront of the town. With our expert guide, we’ll learn about the history of this region as we take in medieval archways, renaissance churches, and narrow cobbled streets.
The town of Limone is another beautiful town from which to explore the beauty and history of Lake Garda. The heart of Limone old town is centred around its beautiful little harbour, the Porto Vecchio. This area is a great place to relax and unwind with its picturesque waterfront terraces and plenty of waterfront cafés from which we can enjoy the lakeside views while sipping on a cappuccino. The quaint narrow streets around the port are filled with gorgeous boutiques and shops, and with plenty of free time, we can shop to our hearts’ content.
During his tour of Italy in the late 18th Century, the famous writer Goethe described Torbole as "a marvel of nature, an enchanting place". And this stunning lakeside town still retains its charm and beauty today. On our tours to Lake Garda, we’ll visit this quaint village and fishing harbour, which has preserved its original 15th Century appearance. So, whether you’re interested in exploring the town or simply want to relax and take in the stunning scenery, Torbole will be a highlight of our Lake Garda holiday.
Lake Garda’s convenient location just a few hours from Venice means that our holidays can easily include a day trip to the Floating City. When visiting Venice, we’ll wander through the warren of canals, alleys and squares that make up this magical city. We’ll also explore famous landmarks like St. Mark’s Square and Palazzo Ducale, admire 16th and 17th century art in the Galleria Franchetti, and stroll along the Rialto Bridge. We’ll have free time to admire the piazzas, bridges and ornate dwellings that adorn the quaysides of Venice's extensive network of canals, before returning to our hotel in Lake Garda.
Another famous Italian city just a few hours from Lake Garda is the iconic town of Verona. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is filled with historical buildings and best known for its Roman amphitheatre, now home to the world famous Verona Opera festival. Also of interest is Juliet’s balcony – the fact that the balcony was added to the house in the 20th century doesn’t deter the hundreds of thousands of visitors that flock to see and photograph it every year. During our trips to Verona, we’ll have a chance to see all this and more with an expert guide by our side.
The jagged mountain peaks of the Dolomites overlook the northern edge of Lake Garda and many visitors to the lake choose to spend time exploring this impressive mountain range. On our holidays to Lake Garda, we’ll have the opportunity to visit the scenic town of Bolzano in southern Tyrol, known as the gateway to the Dolomites. Get up close to these stunning mountains as we take a cable car ride to the high plateau of Renon before enjoying a train ride through the mountain farms of the beautiful Dolomites.
