    Many people will recognise the name Garda from Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, and they would be correct in assuming that the town lies on its shores. It is not, however, a principle town in the region, and in fact is but a small and peaceful commune, and actually one of the smallest towns in the entire province, being home to just 4,000 residents. Garda, Verona should not be confused with its namesake in the Brescia Province.

    Things to do in Garda, Italy

    The interesting and attractive town of Garda sits on the eastern shores of Lake Garda, and offers plenty to see and do despite its small size. Lake Garda is a fascinating and aesthetically stunning place, where families can enjoy water sports such as water skiing, windsurfing and sailing amongst a rich and varied backdrop. Walking, hiking and mountain climbing are just some of the many other activities on offer in the region.

    Within Garda itself are a number of old sites, with the town itself being centuries old but still well preserved. Once a fortified town, Garda has narrow, winding streets that are home to places of interest such as the Captain’s Palace – a 14th century Venetian palace, as well as the 18th century Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Another site worth visiting is the Rock of Garda, which looms 300 metres over the town, and offers panoramic views of the lake and surrounding countryside from its summit.

    Garda has a decent selection of shops, where you can pick up the local specialities such as wines and olive oils. Nightlife is fun without being over-the-top, with most of the bars situated along the promenade area. In terms of restaurants, pizzerias and seafood joints rule the roost in this part of the world, though you can always self-cater in your Garda holiday rental apartment if you fancy something a little different.
