Unforgettable days at Lake Garda
One of the most beautiful lakes in Italy is definitely Lake Garda. Spending a few days in this enchanting place, you will savour the beauty that surrounds the lake. In fact, the small villages that surround it together with its landscapes make it a place of timeless charm.
Lake Garda is so large that it bathes three Italian regions; in fact, anyone who goes to this place to visit it has the feeling of being in a sea in the middle of the mountains because you can't see the borders. This is precisely why the landscape satisfies the tastes of all visitors. You can see mountains, hills, small villages on the shores, little islands, as well as the art and culture that is an integral part of the place.
One of the most beautiful villages to see on Lake Garda is Salò. It is located on the Brescia side of the lake, between the Colli Morenici and the foot of Monte San Bartolomeo. Salò is the first municipality of the Riviera dei Limoni (Lemon Riviera), so called because of the cultivation of lemon trees, which characterizes the entire west coast. The historical centre of the town is a succession of architectural beauties to be admired that take the mind back in time. Strolling along the streets that intertwine with alleyways and squares, you can see numerous noble residences, shops selling local products and many bars and restaurants that provide outdoor seating during the summer.
Just a few kilometres from Salò, there is another little gem waiting to be discovered, Gardone Riviera. Thousands of tourists stay here every year, both in summer and winter. It is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy thanks to the natural and historical beauty that Gardone Riviera represents.
Finally, not to be missed, especially for the local flavours that delight every palate, is the village of Gargnano. Thanks to the mild climate, many plants such as lemons, olives, cedars and cypresses grow in Gargnano. One of the must-sees is a lemon house dating back to the 16th century which, thanks to the passion of its owners, is perfectly preserved. The main ingredient used by the farm is the lemon, of which you can taste or buy typical products such as syrups, lemons and many other things.
A taste of the life of the great bard Gabriele D'Annunzio
Anyone staying in the western part of Lake Garda cannot miss the places where Gabriele D'Annunzio spent the last years of his life. These places were so dear to him that before his death he dedicated many lines of his poems to Gardone. This is why the itinerary includes a one-night stay in a structure that was the famous poet's home before he moved to the Vittoriale degli Italiani for good. This experience will be truly immersive.
You will stay for one night in luxurious suites at Gabriele D'Annunzio's historic home in Gardone Riviera. You will also be able to relax in a splendid destination spa and sample numerous gourmet dishes in the property's restaurant.
To discover D'Annunzio's life to the fullest, however, all you have to do is visit what was his home in the last years of his life, the Vittoriale. As well as seeing the monumental park accompanied by a guide, you can also visit the site's museums which contain D'Annunzio's relics, memorabilia and mementos.
On the refined shores of Lake Garda, treat yourself to an exclusive weekend in the rooms where the great bard Gabriele D'Annunzio stayed, visiting his beloved places.
