Lake Garda & Lake Iseo an alpine idyll

Lake Garda, Italy’s biggest, with its sometimes stormy north and mild, Mediterranean south is for sure not unknown. Tourists crowd Sirmione and its other lake shore towns in high season. Lake Garda hotels are often fully booked and the café’s bustling with people.
On the other hand its clear waters, jagged mountain ranges and hilly wine region make it one of Italy’s most spectacular natural wonders and truly worth a trip.

Lake Garda & Lake Iseo what to do

From the terrace of your hotel in Gardone Riviera, poised high above the lake, you can sip the local speciality, Bardolino, a blend of sangiovese, molinara, corvina and rondinella grapes while taking in the splendor of the view. Each little town, be it Riva and Torbole on the north shore, Gargnano halfway down or even the less visited Desenzano, has something special to discover.
There are also attractions for the whole family: You can explore the famous Gardaland or the adventurous Movieland!


Truffles, chanterelles and porcini are pretty common. They use it for risotto as well as pasta, what generates a unique taste!
Polenta, a corn mash, is a popular side dish for fish and meat.
Furthermore, you can enjoy a wide selection of different red and white wines of the region!
