The Lombardy region
Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, is located in Northern Italy about half-way between Venice and Milan. Originally known as Benaco, it was much loved by Virgil, Catullus and Goethe and has a very rich and interesting history, with monuments dating from Roman times through the 19th century.
The lake has many attractions for visitors: a mild climate, beautiful and varied scenery, from the rolling hills at the Southern end to rugged mountain landscape of the Northern end. Hills are covered with olive trees and vineyards, each punctuated by its castle, looking over the most azure lake of Italy: a truly idillic spot.
The area around Lake Garda is rich of beaches, parks, gardens, large country houses built around the wealthy towns of Desenzano, Salò, Gardone Riviera, Fasano and Maderno. There are a number of amusement parks and sporting grounds and during the winter season there is plenty of good skiing on the spacious snowfields of Monte Baldo.
Desenzano del Garda
Desenzano is the largest and liveliest town in the south of Lake Garda, close to the Peninsula of Sirmione and is considered the capital of Lake Garda. It is home to many fine hotels, tourist resorts and its restaurants serve excellent dishes and famous wines (Lugana, Chiaretto, Rosso Riviera). Desenzano has numerous sports facilities (swimming pools, riding schools, golf clubs, tennis courts, yacht clubs) and places of culture, like civic museum, library, auditorium, convention centres.
For evening outings, the lively and elegant town of Desenzano has plenty to offer: summer festivals, fine restaurants, night clubs or just romantic strolls by the lake, cute little villages and castles to be explored.
The picturesque open-air market held every Tuesday has existed since the 15th century and the main street hosts some excellent shops and designer boutiques. Transportation connections are excellent. The Desenzano train station is on the Milan-Venice line, and there is a Desenzano exit on the A4 "Serenissima" Milan-Venice motorway.
