Tourist tax

Is it normal practice for Italian hotels to charge a tourist Tax?

Hi, as you have posted this in the Lake Garda forum then I assume you mean Lake Garda hotels. The tourist tax has been introduced over the last year or so at the lake, with some towns starting from last year and some this year. It will probably be mentioned on your hotel's web site.

The amount of tax paid depends on the grading of the hotel, when you stay and for how long. The tax is paid to the hotel in cash at the end of your stay.

Thank you - that's helpful.

Another question. Is there a cycle path from Garda to Peschiera del Garda which avoids the roads and what is the distance?

Hi, you can cycle easily from Garda to Bardolino and a little further to Cisano, but from Cisano to Lazise the path in some places is quite rutted, narrow, uneven and with some exposed tree roots. I think the recent high water levels in the lake have caused some damage to the lake path. When I was in Garda in early June we walked to Lazise but saw several cyclists having to get off their bikes and walk.

Sorry, I can't comment on the section from Lazise to Peschiera.

I have seen quite a few cyclists on the path between Lazise and Peschiera but in some places on the section from Lazise to Pacengo the ground gets a bit rough. From Pacengo into Peschiera it is fairly level. There is also a small marina en route that has to be crossed by climbing up one lot of steps, across the bridge and then back down steps at the other side. To walk between the two towns takes just over 2 hours.
