Surfers from around the globe meet up here, at Italy’s biggest and most famous lake. The surrounding landscape is ideal for hiking, cycling, mountain biking and climbing
The lake is over 50 km long and up to 17 km wide and connects the Alps with the Po Valley. To the north, it lies in the province Trentino- South Tyrol, to the west in Lombardy, and to the East in Venetia. With its waves, beaches and bays, it resembles a small ocean. The landscapes and villages surrounding the lake are accordingly varied. Along the lakeside lie enchanting villages such as Sirmione, Salò, Malcesine or Limone, with their colourful facades, pretty churches and majestic villas. Charming cafés, inviting restaurants and elegant boutiques entice visitors to take a stroll. Lake Garda offers a great selection of attractions particularly in the summer: musical entertainment, concerts, theater performances, wine and gastronomical events, sporting and cultural events. Besides the well-known amusement parks Gardaland, Caneva, Movie Studios, Parco Giardino Sigurtà and Parco Zoo Safari, Lake Garda also has beautiful hiking trails to offer, which can be explored on foot or by bicycle. Clear and crystalline water, and the sunny and easily accessible beaches provide many opportunities to relax.
In the summer months from June to August, you can expect an average air temperature of 24° – 32° C. This mild climate is also home to a lusciously blooming fl ora. Palm trees, oleander, orange and lemon trees, as well as vineyards and olive groves are characteristic of this landscape and produce excellent wines and very good olive oil.
