I could spend hours staring at the lake! Would highly recommend renting a little peddle boat and exploring the lake as this was the highlight of the holiday for me.

The north of the lake is breath-taking with the combination of lake and mountain views. The 'Lake Hopper' ticket is very good value for town hopping in the north (around 18.50euro). Main towns that I would highly recommend to visit.

1: Limone (chilled and picturesque)
2: Malcesne: Castle view from lake is beautiful, cable car up the mountain is nice, lovely cobbled streets
3: Riva: great for bathing, lake shore promenade is stunning and great for biking
4: Sirmione: In the south is very busy but the castle is picturesque

It is a three hour boat journey from the North to the South of the lake so do plan your visit wisely to get the most of your time.

The 'James Bond' route down the west coast of the lake has been named one of the most picturesque roads in the world.

Some of the most beautiful scenery in the North of Italy can be found here. Every village and town has character. It is extremely crowded in the summer months and parking can be a real challenge. Many opt to swim in hotel pools, but I love the fresh water of the lake. It can be rocky in certain places, so it is best to bring aqua shoes.

Liked it all. The Hotel Garden was everything we could want. The lake beautiful and Garda town a treat. Easy to get around and to other places of Historic interest.
