What a Bella Italia! – you may exclaim as you watch Lake Garda approaching – one of the most recognizable icons of Italy. Its clear waters, beaches along its shores and crisp mountain air attract travelers from all over the world - including Poles - every season. Once there, tourists are enchanted by the panorama of towns squatting in the shadow of the majestic Trentino Alps , which, surprisingly, in the 21st century. century, they still retain their historic character. Driving along the winding serpentines around the surface of the lake shimmering in the summer sun, it is difficult to focus on the road - everyone can be distracted by unforgettable views of stone defensive towers, domes of temples and roofs of hundreds of houses covered with sun-baked tiles emerging from the pine forests...

A magical alpine province

Camping on Lake Garda is an opportunity to get to know Italy from the magical province, filled with an Alpine atmosphere. Almost every town here is a separate architectural gem, worth visiting. During a trip around the shores of Garda, you can learn the medieval (and bloody!) secrets of the knights living in the chambers of Sirmione Castle , which was built on a small, isolated peninsula in the southern part of the lake. While here, it is worth being seduced by history even more and exploring the ancient secrets of the Romans hidden in the ruins of the Grotte dei Catullo villa.


When driving north from Sirmione, you must stop in small Malcesine , where you just need to board the gondola cable car and, after a dozen or so minutes of riding and panoramic views of the Alpine ridge, you will stand at the top of Montebaldo (1,750 m) . Of course, mountain hikes and historic walks are not all that the Lake Garda area has to offer. After all, it is one of the few places in the world where, surrounded by sky-high peaks, you can plunge into the embrace of water madness! Aquaparks and swimming pool complexes are one of the favorite local attractions, providing a solid dose of fun - the famous Gardaland Aquapark is a place where you can easily spend the whole day (or even two!), relaxing in the jacuzzi and saunas, or sliding at stunning speed down numerous slides and... water roller coasters.

Comfortable overnight stay on Lake Garda


Comfortable accommodation is a key element of any trip to this picturesque corner of Italy. When planning a vacation here, it is worth choosing mobility and exploring the area on your own. Traveling by car, even in demanding mountain terrain, will allow you to fully enjoy the Alpine landscapes. Accommodation at one of the many Italian campsites will be a great solution for tourists who want to be independent during their vacation, use the latest technological amenities, but also... enjoy the silence and majesty of nature. The Baia Holiday Camping Village la Gardiola is a small campsite that meets all these requirements - more than enough! Located only 200 meters from the shores of Lake Garda and the romantic pebble beach, it is a place where undisturbed relaxation plays the main role. A professional team of animators ensures that guests receive the right amount of entertainment, effectively warding off the specter of boredom. A restaurant, a grocery store and a traditional pizzeria located within a short walk are places where in the evenings everyone can experience the depth of flavors of the famous Italian cuisine. You can also eat to your heart's content on site - the fast food bar serving filling dishes will satisfy every hunger, both small and large. You don't really need much to stay fit - just take advantage of the opportunity to swim in a guarded swimming pool, ride an MTB bike along mountain trails, or... try your hand at horse riding to burn unnecessary calories.
