Peschiera in April and pregnant

Hi,

We have booked flights to bergamo on 7th April. We plan to take the train to the lake so have been looking at staying in Peschiera as we would also like to visit Venice and Verona while we are there. I know lots of people recommend Garda and the east side of the lake but as I am pregnant and we will have begun travelling at 4am so we'd prefer to not be getting too many trains and buses the day we arrive. I have read that Peschiera isn't the most beautiful of towns but would it be a good base for visiting other parts of the lake? Also would there be plenty of restaurants open at that time of year? We are looking at staying at the Enjoy Hotel, would there be restaurants in a shortish walking distance?

If you want to stay in a nicer town with easy connections, give a look to Desenzano: nicer, bigger and open all year round.

Hi, Peschiera del Garda is a pretty smaller town with good public transport links for getting around the lake.

As well as the ferries, there are two bus services, one travelling up the eastern side of the lake to Riva del Garda and the other going to Sirmione and Desenzano del Garda, both buses also go directly to Verona. You can take the train to Verona, Desenzano del Garda or Venice. There is a tree lined promenade for a gentle stroll, the lakeside path to the tiny port at Pacengo and also riverside paths.

The Enjoy Hotel is just around the corner from the train station, close to the bus stops but is on the fairly busy main road. Its about a 1km level walk into the old town centre and the ferry point.

These are the current bus timetables to give you an idea of where you can get to and journey times etc.

The Spring ferry timetable for this year isn't available yet, but this the 2013 timetable

This might also be of help to you.
