When you see the lake for the first time, you will understand why it is so loved by so many tourists. You are surrounded by beautiful green mountains, very clean water and beautiful villages.
Lake Garda is not only the largest lake, but also the cleanest in Italy. On the north bank you can enjoy sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing. Also if you love fishing and diving, you will find everything you need to arrange a wonderful adventure.
Even around the lake there is a lot to see, the scenery of enchanting cliffs, cypresses and oleanders. The western shore is full of lemon groves, while the east is full of vineyards. The bustling harbour town of Peschiera del Garda and the medieval village of Borghetto sul Mincio, on the south bank, are worth a visit. Sirmione, located on a long and narrow peninsula, boasts a beautiful archaeological site: the "caves of Catullus."
