Lake Garda:a huge crystalline diamond nestled between the Alps, rolling hills, and tons of absolutely gorgeous small Italian towns oozing with charm
Lake Garda, also known as Benaco, is the largest Italian lake, with an area of about 370 km² distributed among three regions, Lombardy, Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige.
To the north it is narrow and funnel-shaped, while to the south it widens, surrounded by moraine hills that make the landscape more ‘delicate’.

On Lake Garda we can admire Lazise, Peschiera del Garda, Sirmione, Desenzano, the charming piers of Torri di Benaco and Punta San Vigilio. Let's not forget the enchanting Tignale and Tremosine, perched on the rocky cliffs.
On Lake Garda the seasons are mild, thanks to the meeting of water and mountains.
This meeting creates a microclimate, surrounded by beautiful green landscapes: oleanders, palms, cypresses and lemon trees.
Don't forget the incredible olive trees and vineyards where truly spectacular wines and extra virgin olive oil are produced!
