Lake of Garda

In this chapter we will discuss the evocative lake of Garda, with its characteristic villages and its spectacular hills that surround it.

The area around Lake of Garda is a palette full of bright colors, which from north to south mix between the countryside and the city, between sweetness and rigor. The olive trees, cypresses and vineyards of the lower lake testify to the mild, almost Mediterranean climate of this area. As you approach to Peschiera, in the southern part of the lake, an expanse of blue welcomes visitors, in a succession of bays and beaches, pretty villages and cultivated hills, then tighten up towards Malcesine between rocks, cliffs and high mountains.

Leaving the main road that goes around the lake, we enter the lush Veronese hills surrounded by wonderful olive groves, from which we derive one of the best oils of Italy and among green vineyards with the historic cellars, where they are produced among the best wines Italians, up to the slopes of Monte Baldo, for a bit of trekking between alpine pastures and mountain huts.

We have divided the Lake of Garda into the following chapters:
