Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake is perhaps the most beautiful lake in all of Europe. Its waters are incredibly transparent and the intense blue of the water and the luxurious vegetation add to its natural beauty. Garda’s expansive mirror surface glimmers deep within two rocky coastlines, its deepest point reaching down over 340 metres. Its scenery differs from mountainous and jagged in the north to gently hilly in the south. Throughout the lake region the climate is pleasant and exceptionally mild which favours the growth of a predominately mediterranean vegetation (olives, grapes, figs, oleanders, magnolias, palm trees etc). The picturesque villages and towns spread along the shore offer a unique experience and a variety of natural and historical attractions along with excellent restaurants, outdoor coffee houses and open markets.
