‘Kennst du das Land, wo die Zitronen blühn?’ The reference of the German poet Goethe on Lake Garda has been centuries old, but despite the large tourism, the lake hasn’t lost its old charm.

With its 390 square kilometres, Lake Garda is the largest lake of Italy. It covers the areas of Veneto, Lombardia and part of Trentino-Alto Adige (South Tirol) Thanks to the protecting embrace of the Alps, the climate is very comfortable. The temperature at the lake’s shore can still rise up to 20 degrees Celsius into November. There is a Mediterranean atmosphere: Olives, Citrus trees and cypress trees cover the landscape.

Many of the villages around Lake Garda can be visited by boat. The small and busy roads around the lake are quickly forgotten once you are on the water. Sliding through the water, enjoying the beautiful views and the picturesque villages on the shore while enjoying a good glass of wine makes you wish a day like this will never end.
