Lake Garda is the largest in Italy, a piece of the Mediterranean set between the Alps and the Padana Valley.
Also called Benaco, it is a lake which resembles the sea: with its cliffs, overhanging inlets and bays, but also the climate, warmth of the waters and typical Mediterranean vegetation.
The whole of Garda boasts a culinary and gastronomic tradition of enormous value and variety, Garda’s flavours range over a great variety of products: fish, oil, citrus fruits and wine, but also cheeses from malga, salami and sausages, mushrooms, truffles and hinterland chestnuts.
The lake is an area which is rich in history and culture, inhabited since prehistoric times, even today it is possible to discover numerous traces of its Roman past: we think of the spectacular Grotte di Catullo at the end of the Sirmione peninsula. There are many other points of architectural and artistic interest that Garda will offer: the perfectly preserved small villages of the coast, the Art Nouveau villas, the medieval parishes and the many Scaliger castles on the Veronese shore.
Garda is not just culture and food and wine, it is also fun. There are plenty of nightclubs, wine bars, restaurants, nightclubs and piano bars where you can animate your nightlife.
In the Veronese area of ??Peschiera and Lazise, ??a few kilometres away from Scriciol Agritourism, lie the most famous amusement parks in Italy: Caneva Word water park, Movies Studios Park, Rockstar Cafè, Medieval Times, but above all, Gardaland defined as the Italian Disneyland.
For sports enthusiasts, the lake and its surroundings are an ideal setting: mountain bike trails, trekking routes, diving centres, mountaineering schools, riding schools and golf courses. The villages in northern Garda are a paradise for those who want to practice windsurfing and sailing thanks to a wind which blows constantly throughout the day.
