Thanks to the mild climate throughout the year and to a perfect water temperature, Lake Garda almost seems like a sea set between the Alps and the Po Valley. Surrounded by palm trees, oleanders, olive trees and vines, the lakeside banks lap three regions, Veneto, Lombardia and Trentino Alto Adige. Among picturesque villages, beaches, marinas, parks and nature reserves, it is the ideal place for nature lovers, sports enthusiasts and all those who want to discover places rich in history and culture. The first to be fascinated by Lake Garda was the Latin poet Catullus, whose family had a villa in Sirmione. After him, poets and writers of all ages praised this lake: Dante Alighieri, Goethe, Ugo Foscolo, Lord Byron and Henry Stendhal. Without forgetting Giosuè Carducci, Gabriele D’Annunzio, James Joyce, Ezra Pound and Franz Kafka.


A city with more than two thousand years of history, Verona is today the second point of interest in Veneto due to the liveliness and consistency of its economic activities, as well as being a popular international tourist destination. The gentle bends of river Adige that cross it and the hills surrounding it from the northern side emphasize its beauty and landscape harmony. Verona attracts guests from all over the world with the amphiteather Arena, the myth of Juliet and Romeo and with its refined beauty. The historic center of Verona has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List due to its urban structure and its architecture and also represents in an exceptional way the concept of the multi-stage fortified city, typical of European history.


A world out of time. The town was designed by the Gonzagas, along with the greatest artists of the time. Palazzo Te, just outside the door, is the leisure villa designed by the great architect Giulio Romano. To the painter Andrea Mantegna instead, Ludovico II entrusted the grandiose complex of Palazzo Ducale to celebrate his dynasty. The Bridal Chamber was unveiled after nine years of work. In the city, it is a must to visit Piazza Erbe with the market, Palazzo della Ragione, the Clock Tower with the lunar cycles and Time Museum. Unique is also the Bibiena Scientific Theater, a jewel of the ‘700 inaugurated by a young Mozart.


Monte Baldo is a special mountain with a thousand flavors, not just sports. In every season nature offers a different show, the lights and colors change constantly and leave you breathless. The Baldo is the most western of the reliefs of the Venetian Prealps; for three quarters in the Verona area, the rest in Trentino; it runs for over 30km from South to North, between the Adige Valley (to the east) and Lake Garda (to the west). Living Baldo means to photograph every single flower that attracts your attention. Whoever visits this mountain will understand how heterogeneous and mysterious it is, but at the same time eager to show what it keeps, ready to welcome, like its people, those who show the desire to know it.


The lake and its hinterland are suitable for all sports: swimming and sailing first of all, and then mountains to climb, mountain-bike routes, trekking routes and trails to go on horseback, hills where to launch with hang-gliding and torrents for rafting. The Trentino coast to the north is the realm of sailing and surfing, thanks to constant winds. Then there is the area that goes from Malcesine to Peschiera, in the province of Verona, also known as the “Riviera of the olive trees”: it is about fifty km, characterized by well-equipped beaches and places of sport, active vacation and summer fun. For those who want to relax there are also many spas, including those in Sirmione and Lazise, and several splendid golf courses.
