What about some photos of Lake Garda? The beauty of this lake is unbelievable and no photo is ever as good as the real thing. Still I've tried to capture a little of the magic!
Mine are not as good as Lars' photos but I think the lovely subjects and the passion I have for Italy go a long way in masking my lack of skill. And I am getting better so keep following me and who knows what wonderful photos you might see soon - maybe something like the gorgeous photos on my Facebook page!

I hope you enjoy the photos and if you have any photos, stories or comments to add please do so at the bottom of this page. I would love to hear from you...
My son looks up in amazement at this incredible old shop covered with bougainvillea. Sirmione (click for my guide) may be a tiny little town but it is full of gorgeous shops and cottages and that's not all...there's even a castle and a Roman villa!
Suntanning on the shores of Lake Garda. You'd be amazed at some of the lovely beaches that are to be found around the lake - these are my favorites.
Photo taken by me in Lazise on the shores of Lake Garda. Lazise is one of Lake Garda's loveliest towns and is one of the best towns in which to base yourself as it really is near everything.
Photo of Garda from Monte Baldo taken by Lars Sundström. The view from the summit of Monte Baldo is breathtaking and the trip up in the cable car is something that everyone who visits Lake Garda should do.
Peschiera (click for more) is another town that I love. This photo was taken by my husband last summer on the bridge that leads into town.
Another one of Peschiera - along the waterfront of the old town you'll find lots of restaurants. It's a great place for lunch...and to people watch.
Photo taken by me in Gardaland - my tip, when visiting Gardaland is to not go on the Blue Tornado roller coaster unless you are a lot braver than me! It took me a week to recover. See our Gardaland guide for more.
This photo of Lazise
was taken by me on a really miserable day in June. Normally the weather in June is superb but this last summer was really a disappointment.
