Southern Lake Garda
A truly delightful week spent in Lake Garda we stayed in our favourite hotel in Garda (Hotel Excelsior Le Terrazze) We do
like staying in the town of Garda as we find it’s very convenient for getting around the lake due to the Bus Station & Ferry Port . Our first town we visited was the lovely small and relaxing town of Torri Del Benaco with its castle small port and time for a nice stroll along the promenade our next town to visit was Bardolino which we decide as usual to take a leisurely 45 minute walk around the lake taking in the stunning views before arriving. It’s a bigger town for shopping and a large area on the front which is popular for relaxing with an Aperol Spritz especially at Cafe Italia for unbelievable snacks Next was a definite worthwhile trip to Isola Del Garda a glorious little island in the middle of the lake with its amazing castle and beautiful Italian & English gardens plus the most stunning views across the lake so on we go this time by ferry to Sirmione now this town as well as a castle and a grotto is an absolute heaven for Gelato which appears to be every other shop but it is amazing so all this plus the town of Garda which is a lovely town with a delightful long promenade with many shops and restaurants and as I said very convenient for touring around the lake .
