Time spent around Lake Garda might just be the best holiday you’ve ever had. The immediate area and the surrounding region are both quite incredibly beautiful, tranquil and invigorating. Little wonder then that Italians have been visiting the lake for centuries and some of the world’s wealthiest individuals now have holiday homes in the area.
Half way between Brescia and Verona in the northern reaches of the country, Lake Garda is the largest of the great lakes of Italy and one of its leading tourist attractions. There are a wide variety of accommodation styles available if you’re seriously considering your options on Lake Garda holidays. So from plush apartments to spacious villas or luxury hotels, all your bases are covered and it really comes down to a question of managing your budget effectively and planning around your particular preferences.
You can’t be guaranteed clear skies and beautiful weather in northern Italy but when the sun comes out and the waters of the lake are glistening invitingly there can’t be many better or more agreeable places to be. The rugged terrain is complimented by the calmness of the lake waters themselves but also by the wonderfully charming towns and villages that are as interesting to visit as they are pleasing to look at. And you’ll find absolutely no shortage of great places to eat and spend time around Lake Garda, as you might expect from a country and a region that takes its cuisine very seriously indeed.
Whether you are an energetic person or not, you might be tempted to pack a rucksack and walk up one or other of the hills or mountains if you have chance to spend time in the Italian lakes region. The views are absolutely breath-taking and getting involved in some outdoor activities can prove the ideal way to make the most of your trip. If you really are an outdoors type then there are plenty of mountain walking holidays available right now for you to choose from, with added discounts being offered for booking online.
