Towns at Lake Garda

Discover the largest
lake of Italy

Lake Garda is with a circumference of 185 km the largest lake in Italy and offers a diverse lakeside. At the northern part, which is governed by the province Trentino, mountains come really close to the lake. Sheer rock walls overlook the beaches and the villages Riva del Garda and Torbole. The western lakeside is characterized by the Brescian pre-Alps with its precipices and the Gardesana Occidentale. Limone sul Garda is one of the towns that clings to the rocks. The climate of this city is very mild and allures many tourists. The spectacular western shore road with it tunnels and galleries leads to Gargnano. The beautiful towns Toscolano-Maderno, Gardone Riviera and Salò are situated within gorgeous subtropical vegetation.

At the southern part of Lake Garda has a more Mediterranean vegetation with palms, cypresses, laurel and olives. For towns like Desenzano del Garda tourism and olive and wine cultivation are the main sources of revenue. The spa town Sirmione is located on a small promontory which extends into Lake Garda. The town`s landmark is the well preserved Scaliger castle, which was built in the 13th century.

The eastern lakeside is administrated by the province Verona. On driving east on the lakeside road you pass orchards, olive grove and vineyards. The towns located here are known for excellent wine. For example the small town Bardolino. The holiday resorts Lazise and Garda as well as Bardolino have spacious beaches. Some more kilometers further after San Vigilio the landscape changes again. The foothills of the 2.200 m high Monte Baldo massif defines the landscape. The impressive historic cities and the old fishing harbors of the towns Torri del Benaco, Brenzone und Malcesine fascinate the tourists.
