So Big
Oct 2019
Sara from our B & B took us around the lake on her boat. Didn't realise just how big the lake is! We spent a few hours travelling around seeing the sites on the lake and the private island where the nobility from Venice live.

Big and Beautiful

This is a very large lake with a very diverse number of towns and places of interest dotted around its perimeter.
If you have the time, the best way to see the different places is to go by the different ferries that ply their trade around it - but they are split into zones so you need to be careful you pick the right ones.
This is a simply beautiful area.

Great views all round the lake and from the ferries crossing it
Oct 2019
We were on a week long Riviera Travel holiday to Lake Garda and the Dolomites. Because of the timing of our flight into Venice we arrived at our hotel in Malcesine in the dark very late at night so saw nothing of the lake. However on our first day we were due to go on a coach tour around most of the lake and have a ferry trip across part of the lake on our first full day.

We were not disappointed with what we saw. The views were always very good at least and sometimes absolutely stunning. We had a very experienced and knowledgeable guide (Werner) and excellent driver (Ferrer??) who between them made this a truly memorable experience for us.

One unexpected experience was when were were coming alongside a stopping point and a high speed vessel passed by very close to our vessel which was struck by the wake which was almost of tsumani like proportions. Several people waiting to disembark our ferry got their feet soaked up to and above their ankles.

Can't say enough
Sep 2019
There is so much to see and do at this amazing place. The most northern place where lemons can grow, as the lake keeps the temperature moderate. There are Riveria style palm trees along the shoreline...not what I expected. And to top it off - literally - Mount Baldo is a experience not to be missed. If you want to simply ride the tram and take photos or hike for hours along the impressive ridgeline, it's an experience you won't forget. So gorgeous!

Lovely

Took a very leisurely walk along Lago Di Garda, beautiful views. Plenty of places to stop for a drink and eat if you wanted. Noted to have small pebble " beaches" with sun seekers relaxing or swimming in the lake. A vey pleasant place. Suitable for wheelchair users etc.

What a beautiful day!
Aug 2019 • Family
My husband and I visited the lake with our 3.5 yo daughter. The landscapes are amazing, color of the water is so beautiful, very clean. We took ferry to reach other side. Many things to visit, you could bath as well, so be sure to bring your towels and swimsuit in your backpack!
There’s a point near the ferry where was full of ducks, we stop to feed them and my daughter had so much fun.
Was a very lovely, beautiful, family day.
Sadly it ends bad. In two restaurant they refuse to make us sit, as you are suppose to wear so elegant and not as tourists with jeans and summer dress.
Be sure to dine in restaurant where are not in the hotels or you might end up as us. So rude!

Good holiday destination
Aug 2019 • Couples
The lake is 570km in area and varies in character, with the Alps running down to it in the north, and the wider, southern end being considerably flatter. Resorts vary in size, facilities and entertainment. Plenty of ferries sailing the lake, but it is necessary to check timetables carefully as each service goes to different places.

Beautifyl lake Garda
Oct 2018
I absolutely love Lake Garda. It has so many historical places to visit as well as beautiful, quaint villages and shops. Bursting with natural colour and beauty. I could visit this place every year and never get tired of it.
