Lake Garda offers amazing views, beautiful nature hikes and various family friendly attractions like theme parks and zoos. It is a great destination for a star tour in Northern Italy.
We chose the city of Lazise as our base. It is located on the southern, eastern side of the lake making it convenient to the theme parks in the region as well as within easy reach of the eastern cities of Venice and Verona, both doable as day trips.
Here is a map of Lake Garda region with the highlights of our trip on it:
|Malcesine||Beautiful castle, cable car and direct ferry across the lake to Limone|
|Limone Sul Garda||Nestled below the mountains, Limone is a gem of a city - direct ferry access to Malcesine|
|Lazise||Great place to stay for star trips of the region|
|Grand'Affi Shopping Center||Nice little shopping center with a great supermarket for some home like cooked foods|
|Parco Giardino Sigurtà S. R. L.||Beautiful botanical gardens park, accessible via small train, golf cart or bicycles for added fun.|
|Gardaland||Fun theme park for all ages|
|Peschiera del Garda||Catch the train from Peschiera to Verona and Venice for cultural day trips|
|Bardolino||Fun lake side stroll, little shops and best ice cream in Italy at Gelateria Biancaneve Bardolino|
|Parco Natura Viva||
Zoo and Safari in one - beautiful and family friendly
We'll post more about each attraction over the next few weeks but what ever you choose to do around the lake it's bound to be worth your while.
