all this has made Lake Garda Italy's most popular lake!
Italy's biggest lake was originally built by a glacier. Already in Roman times it gained a reputation as a wonderful place full of spectacular landscapes. Today, Lake Garda offers a breathtaking mix of historical and architectural monuments, picturesque, romantic villages, splendid castles and villas, typically pastel-colored houses and attractive harbors.
The area's mild climate favors typically mediterranean vegetation such as olives, cypresses and lemons. The microclimate created by the surrounding mountains guarantees that temperatures are not too high in summer and never sink too low in winter.
Along the lake's shore you fill find many possible itineraries and day trips, auch as the wine routes (strade del vino), visits to churches, museums, castles and many other attractions. The area also features many zoos, safari parks, spas, botanic gardens, water parks and theme parks such as the famous Gardaland.
For sports enthusiasts, the possible activities range from traditional, tranquil sports such as horseback riding, golf and swimming to more adventurous sports such as surfing, trekking, mountain biking, and even extreme sports like free climbing, hang gliding and paragliding.
