    Autostrada A4

    Autostrada A4

    I cannot imagine other way but car, as far as I am concerned, it is the most comfortable way to travel around Italy.
    Lago di Garda is situated in the close vicinity to the A4 highway Milano-Trieste, 150km far from Milano and approx. 200km far from Trieste.
    To those who are traveling from the direction of Trieste, the best is to take "uscita" (entrance) of Peschiera from where you can easilly get eastern or western side of the lakeshore.
    To those, however, who are coming from the direction of Milano, the best is to take uscita of Desenzano.

    You can reach just about every village at Lake Garda by ferry boat as well. We once did a lovely tour from Malcesine to Lazise via Garda. We had to change ferries there, which left us a little time to stroll through Garda. On this tour we crossed Lake Garda twice and saw many of the little villages along the shore - absolutely wonderful!

    The car seems to be the best option

    by Anjutka Updated Apr 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this area the car or motorbike seems to be the best option to explore the area, even if it might be sometimes difficult to find a parking under the season. You can stop almost everywhere to take pics (except on the road to Tremosine). A mountainbike can be a nice option, too, but not on the both Garedsana roads along the lake.

    Funivia Monte Baldo

    Funivia Monte Baldo
    2 more images

    Take a ride with funivia (cable-car) from Malcesine to the top of the Monte Baldo. It must be spectacular experience, which I didn't try because I am affraid of cable-cars. In case you're on my side, you can reach Monte Baldo by the road, the same as I did.

    Well, this hardly can be considered as an transportation tip, although it takes you up in the sky. Since I am little bit suspicious, didn't get up to check what kind of panoramic view it can offer. I am always trying to stand with both of my foots on the ground zero.

    Lake Garda

    Ferrys and Hydrofoils come & go quite regularly from most towns around the lake. The company Navigazione sul Lago di Garda seems to be the biggest company operating on the lake.

    Check local tourist offices offices for the latest timetables, I can only find a web site about the company in Italian, Sorry (~_~)

    Plus there are also mini cruises you can take around the lake, including dinner cruises.

This unique mode of transport not only goes up, it also turns round for panoramic views along the way (not for Vertigo sufferers!). You are able to transport bikes& paragliders with you in to the cable car

    The lower cable car station is at Malcesine on the northish east coast.

    Ferry Simple!!!

    by nhcram Updated Jun 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the ferries in Desenzano harbour

    The easiest and quickest way around the lake is by one of the many ferries that run during the day. Most of them visit Desenzano and Sirmione but check the times carefully as they do not all stop at all the resorts all of the time.
    One of the best tickets is the one that allows you to travel for the whole day hopping on and off the ferries as you wish. This is a good idea especially if you want to do a tour of the lake in small bursts.
    The cost of the day ticket when we there was about 18 euros.
    Many of the ferries have a bar and toilet facilities.

    Hang On Cableway

    You can have a tour on those funny cableway cages, or sitting in a Volaplano - small cartoon-like airplanes that glide on those pink railway tracks.
    Of course, nothing can beat Trans Gardaland Express!
    But the thing is - you can not get off at any other location but the same one you've boarded.

    View towards Prezzemolo fantasy adventure for children, I'm afraid I can't tell you much about that, my "little" ones are more inclined to adrenaline adventures.

    boat and tini58de

    A boat ride on Lake Garda is something wonderful - you can see the whole area around there, step off the boat and stroll through one of the picturesque villages or just enjoy the scenery from the boat!

    Schedules can be obtained at the campgrounds and the tourist information offices - or just go down to the harbor and have a look at the schedule info right there!

    Taking the Train to Lago di Garda

    by shellybelly567 Written Oct 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting to Lago di Garda from Verona is very simple. Just buy a ticket to Peschiera del Garda and get on the train. A roundtrip ticket was only 2 Euros and it's a short ride-only 23km.

    Once you get off the train, the lake is only about a 15 minute walk.

    Public Transportation around Lake Garda

    timetable of line 62-64

    We didn't move our car while staying at the campground La Quercia.

    There is a public bus stop in front of the campground that takes you from Verona to Riva del Garda - and is not expensive at all!

    Please note: tickets have to be purchased beforehand!

    the best way tavel to gardalake is by car. especially if you have to transport a bike or surf equipment.
    the best way to get around the lake is of course by bike :). when you take a short cut crossing the lake by ship. ferries cruise tomany harbours.

    Driving to Gardaland

    The parking lot of Gardaland on a spring Sunday

    Driving is probably the best way to travel to Gardaland from the nearby cities (and to visit Lake Garda), although the roads might be quite congested in the summer and during the weekends.

    Gardaland is located in the southeast corner of Lago di Garda. Take the A4 and exit at Peschiera. Follow the signs all the way to the gate.
