Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and is surrounded by many medieval villages, small towns and picturesque ports. Many of them can be reached by boat from various parts of the lake and it’s definitely worth exploring as many of them as you can to get a truly authentic feel for the stunning area.
Peschiera is on the southern end of the lake. Here, you can see the 16th century island fortress and walls, a reminder of a time when Austria controlled the region. Guided tours of the fortress are available by boat or on foot. The old town is colourful and inviting with narrow alleyways lined with shops and cafes. After soaking up the history try a glass of Lugana, a local white wine.Details
