Lake Garda

We're planning the following trip to northern italy and are debating a night in lake Garda on our way from merano to Verona. We just wanted to see if you think a day there is worthwhile and if not, whether you think an extra night in either merano or Verona would be better.

3 nights in venice

3 nights is merano

3 nights in Verona

1 night in milan

Thanks so much!

Hi, what time of year will you be travelling? I always think Lake Garda is worth visiting and, as the previous post suggested, you can go to Lake Garda as a day trip from Verona but, given your itinerary, it's hard to see how you would fit it in. Three nights is just two full days, and there is a lot to see and do in Verona without making a side trip.

You can take the train from Verona to Peschiera del Garda or Desenzano in under 20 minutes. Trains run very regularly and you can take a water bus throughout the lake from either destination. Just walk towards the lake from the railway station. Not sure about the frequency of water buses in October but I'm guessing it would not be a problem. I would suggest staying an extra night in Verona (which is lovely with lots to do) and maybe take an early morning train to the lake for lunch on one of the days. My favourite towns on the lake are Saló and Sirmione. The train timetable is on: www.trenitalia.com

Nice itinerary!
