Lago di Garda is located on the border of Lombardia, Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige. It is one of the most beautiful places in Italy and that's saying quite a lot. Over the centuries the lake has always been very popular with holiday makers.

The area has been rich in well-known products since Ancient Times: marble and wine, which were exported in all parts of the world. Worth a special mention is the “Riviera degli Olivi”, the long golden shore running along the lake for 50 kilometres (from Peschiera to Malcesine).

Places of interest on the lake include Lazise, Peschiera and Sirmione. A special site is the Vittoriale in Gardone just north of Salo. Here you find the house of Gabriele d'Annunzio, an Italian writer, who managed to collect a heap of interesting stuff in his house.

From the Lago di Garda day trips can be made to Verona the Valpolicella with its excellent wines and Mantua..
