About Lake Garda
Lake Garda is an important tourist area in the shadow of the Dolomite Mountains in Northern Italy. It is a popular holiday location, about half-way between Brescia and Verona, and between Venice and Milan. Glaciers formed this alpine region at the end of the last Ice Age. Lake Garda becomes pretty deep just a few metres from the coast. The best beaches, not over-crowded, can be found from Punta San Vigilio to Torri del Benaco and the water is very clean. The beach of Sirmione is great for swimming, so there you will find the clearest water of all Lake Garda. The quality of the water is constantly checked and certified. The beach of Sirmione is made of large smooth rocks and pretty clean. The sight is breathtaking because Sirmione peninsula lays right in the middle of Southern Lake Garda.

Lake Garda & Verona Tour lands in Verona. Set among endless vineyards and cypress groves, this melange of Roman ruins, pink palazzi and fanciful sepulchres has a romantic beauty that is difficult to over-praise. Shakespeare set Romeo and Juliet here, and would likely be amused to know that his imaginary lovers have become Verona’s hottest tourist attraction. Nonetheless, Verona has more to offer than just Romeo and Juliet.
In Verona’s centre, Brà square, there is the almost perfectly preserved Roman Arena. Up via Mazzini from the Arena is piazza delle Erbe, where corny gadgets are sold amid the Renaissance palazzo of former Veronese merchants and has a lively atmosphere with pretty cafes and dazzling restaurants. Through an arch on the right are piazza dei Signori and the Tombs of the Scaligeri, the peculiar Gothic remnants of della Scalla, Verona’s medieval tyrants. The equestrian statue of Cangrande I, head of the Scalla clan is a glorification of raw power and can be visited at the museum of Castelvecchio.
But if you are an incurable romantic, at 23 via Cappello you’ll find Juliet’s house, where lovers graffiti their hopeful pleas. The house where Romeo used to live is now a bar. This ancient city exudes history from every brick and is well worth a visit.
