Welcome to Garda Town

Garda Town is situated on a magnificent bay surrounded by lush green hills. 

Being located halfway up the eastern shore, makes it simply perfect for exploring the mountainous northern shores of the lake as well as the southern lake towns and the wine regions to the east. The incredible Madonna della Corona is not far away either.

A short drive away is Gardaland,  a paradise for bored children and Italy’s biggest theme park.

Staying in Garda Town

Perfect is the Hotel Benaco which is well run with friendly efficient staff and a helpful owner who ensures everything is spotlessly clean and will help with any advice you may need. The hotel is right in the heart of town and rates are excellent.

Not to be Missed

Enjoy the promenade which is one of the best of any Garda town. The restaurants and bars along here are a hive of activity, day and night, during the summer. This is the place to people watch while enjoying an extraordinarily beautiful setting.

The bay and the lush hills, remind my hubby of a miniature Rio, especially after he has had a few drinks.

There is a fairly decent beach (visit our Garda beach guide for more on the beaches) and the old town is a pleasant place to wander. You might find the occasional bargain too but most of the shops tend to be on the expensive side.

If you appreciate the historical then visit the Santa Maria Maggiore Church in the old town.

Take a trip along to Punta San Vigilio which is just to the east of town. Set at the end of a promontory at the base of Monte Baldo and with stunning views across the bay this is one of the loveliest spots on the lake and there is a good shingle beach here too.

If you fancy a game of golf then the championship golf course above the town offers a challenging course and some breath-taking views over Lake Garda.

When to Visit

Anytime from May to September is great although July and August can get a bit crowded. For more on Lake Garda’s weather and the best months to visit click here.
