Limone sul Garda Things to Do

  • Watch the Lemons Grow

    Some people like to sit and watch the flowers grow, but when you come to Limone you do so to watch the lemons grow. After all, the town isn't called "Limone" for nothing!As you approach the town by ferry across the lake your eye will immediately be drawn to a peculair series of structures that resemble girders or piling put in place as the shell or...

  • I have a 'thing' for alleys

    Please forgive me. I love taking photos of alleys, especially ones with character as seen in the pictures. To me, the alleys are the essence of Italian small town life. They are functional, practical, but always exceptionally clean and well maintained.

  • No explanation needed...

    Can you imagine waking up every morning, pouring yourself a cup of coffee, and sitting back to enjoy this view. It would make going to work a real bummer.

  • A wall of flowers

    Flowers are everywhere, and keep in mind that this photo was taken at the end of October.This particular bouquet can be found right beside the little harbour, amidst the shops and restaurants.

  • Wander about the water's edge

    You are here to sightsee, not to play golf, or go deep sea diving. The key to Limone is the slow pace this little hamlet has to offer. Take advantage of it, and soak in the sights.

  • Traditions

    People from Lemone, even after the tourism boom tried to maintain the traditions and culture, some of the cooperatives of the area still produce oil through the old ways

  • Lake Front

    The lake front is full of restaurants, shops and cafes, and of course tourists walking around, but the views from there are also spectacular

  • Lemons

    Even if the name does not come from Lemon, it comes from the Latin word “Limen” or border, lemons are part of a village, that has escape from the Mediterranean area (or that was my impression ! Olives, fishing and lemons had been part of their life (just as if it was down there)

  • Old house

    The lake front was more commercial or tourist but this little house was still conserved at the end of the promenade, with its own little port.

    more
  • The Parish Church

    As we parked at the garage close to the road (we did not know there was another one at the lake front) we went down through the little streets without knowing what to see or expect. It remind me the little old Andalusia villages of Alpujarras.The first thing we saw was this church

  • Breathtaken views

    To enjoy some incredible views of the snowed mountains close to the lake, this is the best place, specially when you are enjoying a wonderful temperature in that moment ;-)

  • Travel the Lake by Bus

    There are water bus services from the municipal jetty to places all over the lake. Get a timetable from the ticket office and buy your tickets just before you travel.Ask at your hotel for discount vouchers for your first trip.The buses go all over the lake, but reserve a lot of time to go from Limone in the North to Sirmione in the south - it takes...

Limone sul Garda Restaurants

  • Marvelous Family Restaurant + Pizzeria

    This place has a sharm that comes from the mix between the location and the view from Limone and the Lake + the manegement. 3 diferent ambients, outside, restaurant and the terrace ( only few places - book a table if possible there !). Its my favorite place for "pasta" (nudle), and as "pasta" is one of the main ingredients of the pitzza, also this...

  • Great Dining Experience !!!!

    This, in my opinion, is a Wine Bar with a restaurant. So first you look for the wines...they are all there!!!!Then if you want to make a nice program, book a table (allways!!) and take the "Menu Degustazione". In this case they will offer you a diferent wine for any of the dishes. First+wine, second+wine,salad+wine, dessert+wine and to clonclude,...

  • Terrace direkt on the Lake

    This restaurante is located direkt on the lake, however, not all the tables are with lake view. If you want one of those, be smart and book it in advance! ( also on the same day). I am a meat men, so I go for a steak or for the "griliata mista di Cane" a mix of grilled meat. Can also recomend the fish there. Ask for the ones awailable. Probably the...

Its possible, and...

Limone sul Garda Shopping

  • Wonderful Masks

    I Dogi is a delightful shop on a delightfully narrow Italian street accessed through a truly delightful doorway.I was captivated by the exterior of the shop which bewitched me and called me inside. There I was further entranced by the wonderfully desirable items on sale.Many shops throughout this part of Italy sell masks, but those on display and...

  • This tunnel warns 'Shops ahead'

    Ma Kettle and I are not shoppers, but I love to look, Ma is disinterested. Great pair huh?This little tunnel affair leads you directly into the old town shopping area. This was mid afternoon when we arrived, and shops in Italy close between 1300 and 1600 hrs, so gates were closed, shutters pulled tight. However, a few hangers on were fighting for...

Limone sul Garda What to Pack

  • mapakettle's Profile Photo
    I saw no shops offering photographic supplies

    by mapakettle Written Nov 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: back pack would be first preference, as rolling luggage will take a beating on the cobblestones, and the inclines might be tough.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Walking shoes no doubt, although many Italians wear high heels (?). Sandles might be slippery on the inclines, especially with smooth soles and poor ankle support.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: no problem

    Photo Equipment: Batteries are difficult to locate, however we were there mid afternoon when many shops close. I saw no camera shops, however closed shutters obscure the window displays and shop names.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: no idea.

Limone sul Garda Sports & Outdoors

    Canyoning is decending canyons/torrents/waterfalls

    by ZenLady34 Written Oct 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around the Lake area one has a lot of choise for activities. You can go cycling, mountain biking, hiking, surfing and you can play tennis, ride a horse and do Canyoning like I did the last time...

    There were five of six different companies offering Canyoning, for some reason I chose the Alpinguides. I took the whole day excursion and enjoyed it a lot!

    We were a group of around ten people. The Alpinguide pages promised food and drink on their site but actually we got (at the very end) cookies and tea... Also I was lucky to be within this group as there was one person who could translate me what the guide was talking about. The guide spoke good German but none English... a bit of a minus point for me as I could not understand.

    BUT it was FUN! If you are an active sports spirit person, go and try out of this!

    Equipment: You will only need a swimming suit and shoes basicly as they will provide you the other equipment as helmet, neopren socks and suits etc.

    Hint for you: take with you a throw away "waterproof" camera. In the suit will be one pocket in front where you can keep it while desending!

    Favorite thing: On this day we decided to drive from Sirmione, where we were staying, around the entire circumfrence of Lake Garda....Limone sul Garda was one of the places where we stopped when we spotted a restaurant at the side of the road that looked like it had a good view from its porch over the lake...you can see the results here.
    Sorry to say that I lost the address and name of the place, but if you pass Limone and just keep an eye out you will spot it.
