SabrinaSummerville Says: With Garda as a base you can take a day/evening trip to nearby Verona to see the Opera in the incredible open air amphitheatre.It's advisable to organise this in advance, though you can be lucky to get seats on the night.I'll write a more detailed opera tip on my Verona page...
SabrinaSummerville Says: The weather in Garda wasn't great, so we decided to abandon our sunloungers and hop on a ferry around the lake. What a wonderful experience!The ferries travel around lake Garda in a constant circuit, stopping at each little port along the way. If you buy a ticket for a round...
SabrinaSummerville Says: I stayed in this comfortable three star hotel in June of 2002 when I spent a week in Garda.In my opinion it is closer to a four star than three star property as the facilities are good and the staff and service are excellent.The Hotel is situated perhaps a five minute walk...
This tip is not about a particular shop. It's about a whole selection of wonderful shops in Garda town selling the most unusual little kitchen-things you will find anywhere in the world.
I bought tiny kiddy cutlery with baby faces in pastel colours for my nieces and nephews. I picked up delph cast with raised fruit and vegetables for every dish and course. I threw in several pretty aprons, teatowels and tablecloths. There were fancy doorknobs and kitchen hooks, little wall hangers for kitchen notes, pasts jars, a myriad of delights for your home.
The only trouble is carrying these items home - the weight of them!
What to buy: Buy whatever you can carry - the only problem is how you'll resist the temptation :-)

This town is not listed in the VT destinations which surprised me.
However, if you're in the vicinity of Lac de Garda, you must spend some time in this pretty town on the edge of lake.
Some fantastic alfresco dining overlooking the lake or the small rivers feeding into the lake.
A very pretty town well worth a few hours if you're in a hurry or a whole day if you're not.

Favorite thing: on the Garda lake, there is a lot to do. I love the small pictoresque village on the verona side coast. On the background a lot of olives tree, indeed here you can taste a good extra vergin olive oil and good wine.
I suggest a visit to Garda, Bardolino, Lazise, and going up to Torri del Benaco and Malcesine. Check them out and you will get across narrow beautiful streets, castles, lemontrees and much more.
Fondest memory: The point I like most is Punta San Vigilio, is a cosy little harbour, you can reach it only by walk. In this small harbour there is only a 5 star hotel (prohibitive prices) and a bar. It's nice for an aperitiv or a breakfast.
