Lake Garda

Cities and Towns in Italian Lake District

Lake Garda isn't only one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy but boasting picturesque towns, a rich history, and striking beauty; it’s also Italy’s largest lake. Spread across three regions (Lombardy in the west, Veneto in the east and Trentino-Alto Adige in the north). Lake Garda is the most family- and water sports-oriented of Italy's lakes. Its terrain gives the lake a wide variety of attractions for sports-loving tourists, from steady winds for sailing and windsurfing to mountains for climbing, rappelling, and mountain biking, all with lake views. At the same time, its location gives Lake Garda a year-round temperate climate where olives and lemons grow well north of their usual range, and a somewhat turbulent history that has left several well-fortified castles, Roman remains, and sites of interest to World War II buffs. Also, there are a huge number of beaches that line the lake's shore and provide the perfect place to sunbathe and enjoy a quick dip in the beautiful waters of the lake. Most are shingle beaches and generally speaking, if you are coming to Lake Garda for a beach holiday, then the south end is probably the best. Some of the beaches found just below where the lake gets really mountainous can also be wonderful, as the views from them are absolutely stunning.
 


The largest island in Lake Garda, Isola del Garda, was the site of a monastery, founded in 1220 by a Catholic saint, St Francis of Assisi. The saint had thought of this as an ideal place for his monks, since it was far away from civilization. However the monastery was destroyed and now a 19th century Venetian Gothic-style building stands in its place.
 

 
Most travelers don’t know this, but Lake Garda has a lot of hidden Hot Sulphur Springs at its tip. The water remains at a warm 95°F throughout the year and visitors can unwind in the midst of trees; guests can also relax in man-made hot tubs.
