Lake Maggiore, Italian Lakes and Mountains

Obviously a trip to Lake Garda or one of the other lakes won't be complete without the obligatory boat trip. There are a few options from 1-4 hour trips or even a sunset trip. Some of the trips will take you to to another part of the lake and give you time to explore another town such as Salò. Plus you get to enjoy the magnificent scenery on the way there and back. Look out for sights such as the Punta San Vigilio, the Caves of Catullus, the medieval castle and more. Plus you will see some of the great beaches along the shoreline of the lake.

Things to Do & See in the Lake Garda Area

Grotte di Catullo, a walk up hill and great views to the ruins of a Roman villa (Sirmione) Or visit the Castello Scaligero di Sirmione, an iconic castle. For the more adventurous there is the Gardaland Park amusement park with a range of rides for all ages. Onepio Winery, who doesn't like a glass of wine! Located in Desenzano Del Garda, included with some local tours. Bracco Baldo Beach is great for a relaxing day at the beach (not a sandy beach)

Day Trips from Lake Garda

Some of the Lake Garda coach holidays will include free or optional extra excursions. If not then don't worry as there are plenty of trips you can take on your own. There are usually day trips available to Verona, Venice & the Dolomites. Plus some shorter trips, including a visit to Madonna della Corona Sanctuary.

Things to Do & See in the Lake Como Area

As you would expect there are generally a range of boat trips available or perhaps for the more active a kayak tour on Lake Como! A popular option is a trip to Villa del Balbianello, a 16th century villa with picturesque gardens and great views. Villa del Balbianello is only accessible by boat. Basilica di Sant'Abbondio, an 11th century church is worth a visit. Enjoy a guided tour of Forte Montecchio Nord and find out about the history of this Italian WW1 fort. The day trips from Lake Como are the same options as the ones from Lake Garda (shown above)

Things to Do & See in the Lake Maggiore Area

Palazzo Borromeo is a popular attraction with it's beautiful gardens, great views over the lake and general setting. The palace itself is also worth seeing. The Botanical Gardens Of Villa Taranto offers over 15 hectares with thousands of plants, ideal for a 1-3 hour stroll. Lungolago Arona is just a short walk from the train station. There are great views and on a clear day you can see the Alps. Piazza della Chiesa offers great views from the beautiful and historic church built for Caesar. Mottarone Cable Car is a perfect choice if you like a good view. You could also take the chair lift and carry on for a better view. Enjoy a drink at the cafe and the spectacular views. Again the day trips from Lake Maggiore are similar to the ones from Lake Garda and Lake Como. So you can combine your stay at Lake Maggiore with a visit to Venice or Verona.
