About Lake Garda
The shores of Italy's largest regions, creating an exciting blend of cultures, traditions and charm, all to be discovered. From the dramatic mountains rising from the top of the lake, to the genlte hills, vineyards and olive groves to the south, Lake Garda is an area of contrasting beauty.
Food and drink
Spread across the regions of Trentino, Veneto and Lombardy, eating and drinking combines the highlights of all three areas. Chargrilled trout is a popular choice, accompanied by a glass of Soave from Veneto, whilst the famous Bardolino and Valpolicella wines produced nearby are some of the best in Italy.
In the town of Riva del Garda, you will find many lovely boutiques selling Italian clothing and footwear, whilst the narrow cobbled streets of Malcesine and Limone reveal plenty of hidden treasures.
