Desenzano as a destination for a 77 yr old lady?
Hi everybody, I want to take my Mom to Desenzano for a few days. She is 77 yrs old, quite active, and has walked everywhere all her life. She has recently developed a hip problem, but it only causes her distress on hills or stairs (not that she will admit to, that is). Is Desenzano the place to go, keeping in mind I would like to tour Lake Garda by ferry, stopping at little places along the way?
Appreciate your time, thank you. Diane

Sorry, I forgot to mention we have to go in August this year. No choice on seasons I'm afraid.
RE: Desenzano as a destination for a 77 yr old lady?
My mom is 77 also, and I am bringing her to Desenzano for 2 weeks in June. We are planning on taking boat trips to the numerous medieval towns around the lake. We also plan day trips to Venice, Padua, Verona, etc. I bought her a ticket to see Aida in the Arena in Verona (2,000 year old coliseum). The bus can pick you up in Desenzano and take you to the opera.
I think its a great location. Also bringing 2 young children.
