I have just spent a week in Garda, visiting family and friends and have realised that I have not yet wrote a post about my home town yet.. Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy, set between Verona and Brescia, close to Venice and to Milan. It is a very popular holiday destination, specially among Germans and British, and once you visit you will understand why 🙂
Lake Garda has it all, mountains, beaches, wine, olive oil and lemons, a strange combination for a Northern destination, all possible thanks to the micro-climate this regions enjoys; some even say it benefits from one of the best climates in Europe.
However, for a holiday, I think the best time to go is between June and October, where you can enjoy the outdoors, whether it is eating outside or going to the beach.
Garda, Torri del Benaco, Malcesine and Riva del Garda are my favorite places by the lake, with Riva (del Garda) being at the top and the other three on the East.
