4 reasons against a holiday on Lake Garda

Do you love Italy and are you planning a vacation on Lake Garda? There are things you should know before booking your stay.

The specialties

If you are on a diet, you should not go to Italy: there are many specialties that you cannot miss. Three regions influence the culinary tradition of Lake Garda: Trentino, Veneto and Lombardy. For example, polenta with porcini mushrooms, spinach dumplings, risotto and tagliatelle come from Trentino. The “Casoncelli” come from Lombardy and Prosecco and Prosciutto come from Veneto. So if you don't want to gain weight you should never go to Italy. In addition, on Lake Garda there are culinary festivals all year round, such as the truffle festival in Tignale, the wine festival in Bardolino, the rice festival and the olive oil festival (from June to November). 

The fashion from Italy

The fashion from Italy is wonderful: Italian fashion and design are famous worldwide, there are top brands such as D&G, Prada, Versace but there are also boutiques, huge shopping centers and outlets where you can buy shoes, clothes, bags, etc. cheaply. They are open 7 days a week. Weekly markets take place in many places on the lake, and you can always find bargains there.
In any case, you will need a new wardrobe.

The leisure offers

There are great leisure activities on Lake Garda: cycling, canyoning, flyboard, golf, motorboat, Nordic walking, rafting, horse riding, water skiing, jogging with a view of Lake Garda, swimming, climbing, sailing. If you have a full day off, drive to Gardaland, the largest and most popular amusement park in Italy and also one of the main attractions on Lake Garda.

Visit cities

Desenzano del Garda, Sirmione, Lazise, Toscolano Maderno: Lake Garda has many beautiful places to offer. If you stay on Lake Garda for two weeks, plan to visit these cities. Discover the “Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori del Garda”, a wine route of the Brescian shores of Lake Garda and try specialties such as cheese, meat, fish, sweets and local wine.
