Garda lake is a historical area with many countries with lake views each with different characteristics from each ‘other. I can only suggest some of the most famous places to visit, but the great thing is find out for myself the enchanting and fascinating places:

 

The road of Forra and Tremosine

One of the most beautiful streets in the world. The Road of Forra the legendary SP38, is the spectacular road from Lake Garda, taking the West Gardesana, up towards the plateau of Tremosine, following the Forra carved in the rocks by the river Brasa. Made in the early years of the last century, the Route of the Ravines was immediately proclaimed one of the most beautiful in the world existing roads and even Wiston Churcill called it the eighth wonder of the world

 

Grotte di Catullo/Castello di Sirmione – Grotte di Catullo / Sirmione Castle

The caves and the Villa Catullo will only reach on foot walking in the center of Sirmione and follow the signs, or in the summer months you can take the electric train. The impressive “Castello Scaligero” is placed at the begin of the long strip of Sirmione penisula

Here, for the length of a drawbridge, a water arm divides the mainland to an island defense from Castle Scaligero. The Castle and its dock, still in perfect state of preservation, is a rare case of fortification intended for use port.

 

Monte Baldo e Funivia Panoramica Malcesine/Monte Baldo – Monte Baldo Cable Car Overview Malcesine / Monte Baldo

A colorful dream in blue from Malcesine to the summit of Monte Baldo. The blue of  Garda Lake that blends with the sky in a breathtaking view that you get a view in all its breadth: from the snowy peaks of the Alps, the clear contours of the nearby mountains to the sweetness of the plain. So the cable car “flies” in a few minutes up to nearly 1800 meters of altitude, with its rotating cabins that can always arouse new emotions

 

Cola di Lazise Villa dei Cedri

It’s a “Garda Thermal Park”  with “13-hectare of natural SPA ” set among rare plants and trees, and where there are thermal lakes, swimming pools, whirlpools and fountains. The hot thermal water springs from two layers 200 and 160 meters depth

It ‘a natural park of about 60 hectares and is located in Valeggio sul Mincio, in the province of Verona. He ‘was the winner of the second prize of Most Beautiful Park in Europe in 2015 and Most Beautiful Park in Italy in 2013.

In spring, the Sigurtà Park is colored tulips, and from May to September the avenue Rose’s is at least 30 thousand. There are then the maze and 18 of water surrounded by immense green lawns.

 Can be visited on foot or by bicycle, dogs are not allowed, but there is a service agreement with two nearby guesthouses where to leave their animals safe.

 

Borghetto

It is an ancient village of mills in complete harmony with its river, tiny fraction of Valeggio

To see the great medieval fortifications that give an original look at the landscape of Borghetto

Walking on the great Visconti Bridge you can admire the Mincio river, which opens up and is channeled in ancient arms that convey the water to the large wheel of the old mills, now transformed into small reception rooms for tourists.

The Castle from the top of the hill with its towers dominates the Mincio valley; the oldest part remains the Round Tower, unique building dating from the twelfth century, while the rest of the complex dates from the fourteenth century.

Excellent cuisine, with typical dish are the tortellini of Valeggio.
