Things To Do

Gardone has two tourist attractions popular with visitors to the town; the botanical gardens (Heller Garden) and the Vittoriale, the estate which was once home to eccentric poet, Gabriele D’Annunzio.

Lake Garda is ideal for enjoying land and water sports; with plenty of options available all around the lake, where there are many sailing schools, dives centres and tennis courts to be found. Waterskiing and jet-skis are only available in the south area of the lake where it’s wider and calmer and better suited for these activities.

The southern end of Lake Garda is home to a number of challenging golf courses, most of which are within easy reach of the holiday resorts.

Rock climbing is a popular activity at the more mountainous north end of the lake in particular the town of Arco, with surrounding 2000 metre high mountains and over 2000 climbing routes its ideal for the advanced climbers, while training walls offer a great place to learn.

Out and About

Whilst driving around Lake Garda is possible, narrow windy roads and limited parking spaces mean it’s not the easiest, the simplest option is across the water by boat. There are a number of choices available; car ferry, the slowest option; hydrofoil, the quickest; motorised catamaran; and paddle steamer, though limited towns are covered, the paddle steamer is an ideal choice for a more leisurely journey.

The towns and villages around the lake offer an abundance of cafes, restaurants and ice-cream parlours; good shopping opportunities too, where the larger the town the more shops and greater variety you’ll find. Most of the towns around the lake have a weekly market, and well worth a browse for the wide selection available; the nearest markets are held at Salo on a Saturday and Toscolano on Thursdays.
