    "When in Rome, be Roman", when in Lazise drink wine.
    The area around Lago di Garda is a real wine district. Here you can teste some of the fine sorted Italian wines from near Bardolino, Lugana, Valpolicella, Cusstozza, Valdadige and Soave.

    Dress Code: There is a fine wine cellar (on the picture) in Corso Cangrande, don't miss it.

Lazise Warnings and Dangers

    Our tour guide warned us that the public restrooms in Lazise are, well, unsuitable for public use:-) As a result, we didn't use them.

    Take my advice and find one of the many pretty lakeside carfes which will be more than happy to allow you to use theirs. Take the time, too, to stop for even a quick cup of coffee and drink in the amazing lakeside scenery.

    The pic attached has nothing to do with restrooms, but it is indeed a lovely Lazise scene.

  • Lungolago Marconi in the fall

    This is the look of the same spot at early November. It is not crowded as in the Summer time, but still there are number of tourists here especially during the weekends. What you have to take in the consideration is the fact that not all hotells and restaurants are open in that period.
