Travelling with three small kids to Peschiera del Garda

We are travelling with three kids to Peschiera del Garda: 18 months, 4 years and 6 years old between the 15th and 22nd of August and we would appreciate any advice on places we can take my kids except for Gardaland. We were planning on using the public transport, trains and taxis for travelling as we could manage the kids better as they are not used to long car drives. We wish to keep the places we visit to less then an hour bus drive except for one day, where we might take a longer trip to visit somewhere out of our way. All advices are greatly appreciated!!!

From Peschiera del Garda you can get almost anywhere on the lake but where you go depends on your interests.

These are the bus timetables from Peschiera del Garda

And the ferries

You can also travel by train to Verona, Desenzano del Garda, Milan and Venice.

There are beach areas on both sides of the town but these are fine shingle rather than sand and are quite small.

Thanks a lot for the time tables. They are really helpful. We were thinking of taking the kids to Gardaland and the Aquarium on one day and Movieworld and Canevaworld on another day. We also found the Parco natura viva very interesting but we haven 't figured out the best way to go from Peschiera del Garda. I have another query regarding our transfer from the airport of Bergamo Milano to Peschiera. Does anyone know the best way to arrive to Peschiera del Garda. Thanks again!!!!

To reach Parco Natura from Garda, you could take a taxi, or bus to Lazise then a second bus to the Park. The buses are not very often though so you would have check the timetable carefully.

You have a few options for getting to Peschiera del Garda from Bergamo.

1. Bus direct from the airport to Brescia, then bus LN026 to Peschiera.

2. Shuttle bus or taxi to Bergamo station, then train to Peschiera del Garda, usually with a change en-route.

3. There is also a direct bus from the airport to Peschiera but this only runs 3 times a day so the times may not be suitable. The bus must also be booked in advance on-line.
