Torbole, Lake Garda, Italy

I am looking for some advice on Torbole. I am thinking of travelling there in August, there are two of us. Am looking for information on what the town is like, and is it possible to use the ferries as a means of exploring other towns, or would a car be necessary? Many thanks.

Hi Torbole is at the very north of the lake and is one of the main centres for water sports and other outdoor activities, and therefore attracts a lot of young people. There is a lakeside path to the larger town of Riva, taking around 45 minutes and also a walk along the riverside to the pretty inland town of Arco, a walk of around 2 hours.

There is a bus, 62-64, that travels down along the eastern side of the lake as far as Peschiera del Garda and on to Verona. To visit towns on the western side of the lake by bus you would first have to get to Riva. Ferries travel quite frequently around the northern part of the lake - Torbole, Riva, Limone, Malcesine. Getting further south by ferry is not as easy as there is only one service each morning, and that doesn't stop at some of the main towns. Really it depends on how much of the lake you want to see. The bus and ferry timetables might give you a better idea.




There is also more information on Torbole and Riva here:



August is the busiest time of year on the lake so you need to be looking at accommodation fairly quickly.

Are there other towns worth visiting nearby. Rovereto? I have been to Riva and most of the towns on the east coast of the lake.
