The town of Salò has got a wonderful promenade along the lake. It is about 1.5 Km long and it is the perfect place if you want to have a walk and admire the town from the lake. Along it you can meet some bars/restaurants and the Società Cannottieri Garda where you can learn to go by boat.more
Although a restaurant has a beautiful view on a lake and seems quite busy, food is not tasty and its over priced for what they offer. Seems that they also dont care much about it since they attract people with location of restaurant. So i advise you to take a sandwich and eat on a promenade. You would have even better experience :) or just walk few...more

We had two 'deliziosa' (focaccio bread with ham and cheese), 2 cappuccini and 2 birri...more

Here you can find my best pizza in Salò.more
When you go to Salò you must drink a "Pirlo" !!! It is the typical "aperitivo" of the area. Go to every bar in the village and ask for it:it is a cocktail made by mixing Campari (or Aperol) with dry champagne and a bit of soda! It's terrific and everyone drink it in Salò before lunch or, more often, before dinner from 6 pm !!! If you like a...more

Picture of the budino 'Creme Caramel' that we bought in the local shopping mall, only the product we bought came in a small plastic container that looked just a little bit different from the one in this picture. In my opinion, the Italian 'budino' is more or less identical to the Spanish and French sweet dessert that goes by the name of 'flan'....more
It s a bit like crowd surfing because of all the people that tend to come to these markets, but it is fun to strawl by and browse through all the things you can buy.I always try to spot the 'locals', like these two nuns. There s hawkers that wanna sell you so called Louis Vuitton bags, sun glasses, and all kinds of other stuff.Be sure to...more
These signs help you understand the city better and also shows the former use of a building i.e.
And since I am far too doopy to remember all, I just photograph such signs ;-)
Almost anywhere along the Garda lake you can hire a motor boat.
It is rather expensive but if you are into boating, it s almost a must do.
