The use of fresh ingredients in Italian cooking seems to put the UK and the USA to shame. The joy of eating fresh tomatoes and excellent olive oil is without equal. It’s hard to travel anywhere in Italy without also enjoying the fine wines that are on offer. Drinking wine with a meal is very much part of the culture here. If you have previously visited many of the larger Italian cities, you can wonder how the region around Lake Garda would compare.
You can read in your guidebook that the area is mostly made up of relatively small villages, towns, and resorts. It would be a trip that would be considerably different from previous visits to the country. You can opt to move around and visit as many of the lakeside villages as possible during your stay on Lake Garda. You will be delighted to find thriving markets and restaurants in many of them.
