Lake Garda is located in the North of Italy, by the foothills of the Alps. Covering over 350 km², it is the biggest lake in Italy.
The shores of the lake boast lively old towns. The lake is also home to a large range of water sports, including swimming, sailing, pedal boating, surfing, rowing, water skiing, fishing, or simply bobbing on an inflatable bed on the deep blue waters.
Of course, there are also plenty of sports ashore, such as tennis, mini golf, hiking, mountain biking, golf, etc. Lake Garda is also an ideal location for exploring Northern Italy. Within a range of 150 kilometers, you'll find beautiful cities like Milan, Padua, Venice and Verona.

The island of Isola del Garda is still private property, but this idyllic spot in Lake Garda has been open to the public for several years now.
A walk to the top is more than worth it, because of the beautiful view of Lake Garda, the bay where Manerba is located and the islands of Isola di Garda and Conigli. The ruined castle on top of the rock was completely destroyed in 1575.
In 1859, a particularly bloody battle took place where this green and cosy village now stands. This eventually led to the founding of the Red Cross. Torre di San Martino, San Martino della Battaglia, San Pietro in Vincoli and the monument of the Red Cross are well worth a visit.
This chateau is located in the heart of Moniga del Garda. After a tour you will have the opportunity to taste the wines. The children are also taken care of, with unlimited chips and soft drinks.
Gardaland is the largest and most popular amusement park in Italy, with more than 50 attractions, including spectacular roller coasters, dark rides, water attractions and shows. Boredom is not an option!
Our locations are an excellent starting point to explore Lake Garda and Northern Italy. Within a radius of 150km you will find beautiful cities such as Milan, Padua, Venice and Verona. But the harbours on Lake Garda are also very worthwhile. Take a trip to Salò, Padenghe, Desenzano, Sirmione, St. Felice, Porto Dusano and many more hidden treasures on the lake!
From Porto Dusano you can enjoy beautiful hikes to Rocco di Manerba. And you can also enjoy a delicious Italian lunch by the water.
You can enjoy lunch and dinner in one of the restaurants at the harbour or in the centre of Moniga. The castle is also worth a visit. Or visit Monte Cicogna where you can learn all about the local viticulture.
Desenzano is a pretty harbor town, much beloved for its attractive quays, home to old buildings and many bars. The bars and discotheques of Desenzano stay lively well into the small hours.
Salò is a beautiful town on the shores of Lake Garda. The centuries old city, probably founded by the Etruscans, is filled with impressive buildings from different periods in history.
Sirmione is a beautiful historical city. The city centre is built around an impressive medieval castle on a peninsula, and is almost completely surrounded by water. Simione is also home to a few Roman houses.
Verona is known across the world as the City of Love. This is where you will find the balcony where Juliet stood, listened to Romeo's love serenades. The city's Arena often hosts opera performances. We'd be happy to book tickets to one of these performances for you.
Lake Garda is in the north of Italy, in the Alpine foothills. With an area of more than 350 km2, it is the largest lake in Italy. It is wonderful to stay in the lively resorts and old towns along its shoreline. The lake also offers a range of water sports options: swimming, sailing, pedal boating, surfing, rowing, water skiing, fishing or just float on an air mattress on the clear blue water.
Sports can also be done ashore, such as tennis, mini golf, (mountain) hiking, mountain biking, golf and so on. But Solfarino (foundation Red Cross) and Gardaland also offer plenty of entertainment.
There are fantastic golf courses at various places around Lake Garda. During low season we offer special golf packages and we organize golf clinics for everyone set to improve their skills.
In the marina of Moniga you can rent all kinds of boats - from pedal boats to a 7-pax motorboat (no boating license required), all the way up to bigger boats that do require a boating license. Click here for more information.
Not much of a hiker? Want to increase your range of operation? No problem! In Moniga del Garda you can rent Vespa scooters.
In and around Lake Garda there are many opportunities for hiking. Take the cable car to the top of Monte Baldo and enjoy the beautiful vistas on the way. Or climb Rocca di Manerba and enjoy the incredible view.
Italy has a wealth of beautiful bike paths, just be careful not to miscalculate your mileage, because the difference in altitude can seriously upset your planning. For a strenuous bike ride you need a minimum of cycling experience, a sturdy bike and enough protection for the adventurous roads. Bicycles can be rented in Moniga.
The many ferries form the fastest route between the different towns by Lake Garda. Especially during holiday season it is quicker to cross the lake by ferry than to drive a car around Lake Garda. In addition, the ferries boast beautiful views of the lake.
