Discover Lake Garda


Located between the pre-Alpine belt and the Po valley, Lake Garda belongs to three regions, Trentino, Lombardy and Veneto. Riviera degli Ulivi is also the name which the Venetian shore is commonly referred to.

It is the largest lake in Italy that offers enchanting views and villages that make everyone fall in love. From the mountains of Trentino to the vineyards and olive groves of the Veronese and Brescia side, this lake is perfect for a tour, which can be done by car, motorcycle or bicycle.
