1. Re: First timer

Hi, welcome to the forum! Where will you be staying?

Gardone Riviera is one of the smaller, quieter towns on Lake Garda but it has two of the lake's attractions, Il Vittoriale and the Heller Botanic Garden:



You will be able to travel around the lake by boat visiting other towns - this is the current timetable:


And the fares chart:


You could cross the lake to Garda or Bardolino (there's a lovely lakeside walk between the two which will take about 45 minutes), or travel to the north (Riva, Malcesine or Limone) to see how the scenery changes and becomes more mountainous.

You can also use buses up and down the west side of the lake from Riva in the north to Desenzano in the south:


Just to the south of Gardone is the town of Salò which is a lovely elegant resort with the longest promenade of any town on the lake. To the north of Gardone is Maderno where you can travel as a foot passenger on the car ferry across to the very picturesque town of Torri del Benaco.

Let us know if you have specific interests and we can suggest which towns would be best to visit.
