Here are 5 enchanting villages on Lake Garda capable of taking your breath away. They will amaze you with their distinctive charm, their narrow streets and the beautiful landscape that they offer you.
Limone sul Garda
Limone is a village famous for its “lemons“, its fine olive oil and the longevity of some of its inhabitants, many of whom have already celebrated their 100th birthday.
This territory remained isolated for a long time, accessible only by boat or through the mountains. The old houses that huddle around the marina have preserved the typical atmosphere of a fishing village.
Salò is a centre of great interest for tourists, with a beautiful promenade that leads to small, lovely pebble beaches.
The old town is characterized by a dense network of narrow streets and small squares, with numerous shops and restaurants of excellent quality. Do not miss the boat excursions.
Riva del Garda
Riva is also called “the Pearl of Lake Garda”. Located at the foot of the Dolomites, Riva can boast white pebble beaches, crystal clear waters and clear, fresh air.
With its two harbours, Riva del Garda is an important sports destination, which include windsurfing and sailing.
Tignale stands on a hill overlooking the Lake, surrounded by meadows and forests. This location allows tourists to enjoy a truly breathtaking view.
On the slopes facing the Lake, we find typical terraces, where olive trees are cultivated. There is a natural park around Tignale, which offers many hiking and cycling trails.
Sirmione is a popular spa destination, located on a peninsula about 30 m above the Lake.
It is famous for its historic centre, with its narrow and irregular streets, its two spas “Catullo” and “Virgil” and the ruins of the villa of the poet Catullus, called the “Grotte di Catullo”.
