Around Garda Lake

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. The road that goes around it is about 200 kilometers long, so you could get around it in just three hours. But let's stretch out the fun and do it in four days. Because it's very beautiful, unusual and interesting! Sometimes you feel like you are on the Mediterranean coast, in the mountains, or in general a time traveler, who found himself in the Middle Ages. There is something to see and do here. So maybe four days wouldn't seem like much...

Road Trip Categories: Beach and Relax, Active Leisure, History and Culture

Day 1: Verona-Sirmione Airport


You decided to spend a few days outdoors by the water? Beautiful! Lake Garda is the best way to do it. Let's start the journey with Sirmione. It is not only one of the most beautiful and famous resorts, it is also easier to get here from the nearest airports - Verona, Bergamo, Venice and Milan.
Visiting: Sirmione, Verona, Sommacampagna

Day 2: Syrmione


Lake Garda has many beautiful and cozy little towns which are so popular with tourists. But perhaps the most memorable of them is Sirmione. That's where we'll start! We will have the whole day to take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque cape and see all the interesting things.
Visiting: Sirmione

Day 3: East coast: Malchezine


Traveling along the eastern bank of Garda, from Sirmione to Riva, not to stop and walk in Malcesina would be an unforgivable mistake. You will find a picturesque town by the water itself, a perfectly preserved medieval castle and an observation deck at an altitude of 1,800 meters with a magnificent view of the lake.
Visiting: Riva del Garda, Sirmione, Malcesine, Riva del Garda

Day 4: Riva del Garda


The ancient Riva del Garda, nestled under a steep cliff, offers many opportunities for active recreation. Bicycle, walks in the surrounding mountains, windsurfing, sapp board, kayak, sailing. And everything is surrounded by palms, magnolias, pines and cypresses. It's a great idea to spend the whole day here!
Visiting: Riva del Garda, Riva del Garda, Arco

Day 5: West Bank: Lemone, Salo


Driving in the opposite direction from Riva to Sirmione, but already along the western shore of the lake, I recommend to make a stop in two more beautiful towns - in Limona, famous as it is easy to guess, with its lemon trees, and in historic Salo.
Visiting: Sirmione, Riva del Garda, Limone sul Garda, Salo

Day 6: Home


The journey around Garda is over - it's time to pack up and go to the airport. I hope you enjoyed it here and have many bright impressions and beautiful pictures left. Have a nice trip!
Visiting: Sommacampagna, Sirmione, Verona
