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 that there are mostly relatively small villages, towns, and resorts in the area in your guidebook. 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 lakeside villages as possible during your stay on Lake Garda. You will find thriving markets and restaurants in many of them.
This guide to a visit to the Lake Garda takes you in a clockwise car drive from Desenzano, touching in sequence all the small towns, including Salo, Gardone Riviera, Toscolano Maderno, Gargnano, Tignale, Tremosine, Limone Sul Garda, Riva del Garda, Torbole, Malcesine, Brenzone, Torri del Benaco, Bardolino, Garda, Lazise, Peschiera del Garda and Sirmione.
Besides, it outlines all the beaches on the Lake.
It also includes a one-day boat ride on the Lake that starting in Peschiera del Garda, then touches the towns of Lazise, Bardolino, Garda, Salo, Gardone Riviera, Malcesine, Limone del Garda, Torbole, and Riva del Garda.
There are extensive descriptions and photos of the attractions.
It contains many reviews for the best-recommended restaurants at the location described.
