A jewel of the Italian Lakes
If it’s some retail therapy you are looking for then most of the towns around the lake will be able to amply satisfy your needs, or head into Verona, where designer outlets vie for your attention and the latest Italian fashions are displayed in the Corso Zanadrelli centre. Garda and Limone are excellent for traditional souvenirs and Italian crafts and the lakeside market at Salo is an absolute must. Olive oils and fine wines are Italian specialities and must be tried while on holidays in Lake Garda.
Accommodation on holidays to Lake Garda varies greatly from luxurious hotels, cosy self catering cabins and back to basic camp sites. It’s your choice between pampered luxury and getting as close to nature as you possibly can. It’s common knowledge that the Italians love their food and different regions have different specialities, risotto is widely available in this area, usually either fish or asparagus, and of course in Italy, you are never far away from a pizzeria. Whatever your choice you can be sure that much passion has been put into the preparation of your food and hence meals are usually enjoyed at a leisurely pace late into the evening, are usually accompanied by a large glass of locally produced wine and completed with a leisurely stroll by the lake.
Nightlife is varied and has everything on offer from a glass of wine by the waters edge to vibrant bars and lively nightclubs. Leisure time is a major part of life on holidays in Lake Garda and the Italians certainly know how to entertain. Look for Lake Garda holidays at Latedeals.co.uk today.
Places to Visit
Riva del Garda
One of the larger towns on the lake yet stil with plenty of character. The easiest way to get here is by boat and the harbour is also one of the best place on the lake for sailing. Shoppers will also be impressed with the amount of designer labels this town has to offer.
Located to the south of Lake Garda, the largest town on the lake is also the best for shopping. It’s wide streets are crammed with designer shops and the railway station means its very accessible too.
Again the best way to get to this north eastern town is by boast as the town is even more spectacular when viewed from the lake. Built into the bottom of the mountain and bedecked with flowers, don’t forget your camera!
