What a Bella Italia! - you can shout while watching the approaching Lake Garda - one of the most recognizable icons of Italy. Its clear waters, beaches stretching along the shores and fresh mountain air attract travelers from all over the world every season - including Poles. On site, tourists are enchanted by the panorama of towns crouched in the shadow of the majestic Trentino Alps , which, surprisingly, in the 21st century. century still retain their historical character. Passing winding serpentines around the surface of the lake glistening in the summer sun, it is difficult to focus on the road - everyone can be distracted by unforgettable views of the stone defensive towers, domes of temples and roofs of hundreds of houses covered with burnt tiles ...

A magical alpine province

Holidays on Lake Garda are an opportunity to get to know Italy from the side of a magical province, steeped in an alpine climate. Almost every town here is a separate architectural gem, worth visiting. During the trip around the shores of Garda, you can learn about the medieval (and bloody!) Secrets of the knights inhabiting the chambers of Sirmione Castle , which was built on a small, isolated peninsula in the southern part of the lake. Being here, it is worth letting yourself be seduced by history even more and explore the ancient secrets of the Romans, hidden in the ruins of the Grotte dei Catullo villa.


Coming from Sirmione to the north, be sure to stop in the small Malcesine , where it is enough to board the gondola cable car, and after a dozen or so minutes of ride and panoramic views of the alpine mountains, you will stand on the top of Montebaldo (1750 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 throw yourself 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 successfully spend a whole day (or even two!), Relaxing in the jacuzzi and saunas, or sliding down at dizzying speed on numerous slides and ... water roller-coasters.
