Garda is the largest and best known of the Italian Lakes.
Having a favourable climate and lots to see and do this makes it a popular destination area for turists.
Salo has earned it’s place of honour among the other towns on the lake for it’s beauty, history and location. The Gulf is something unique, the hills that surround it not only protect it from cold winds but hug the view for those who live here.
The town is famous for it’s recently extended walkway (Lungolago),shops, beach and impressive Cathedral. There are many places of interest in Salo and in the nearby vicinity. From here you can organise all kinds of adventures and excursions.
Travelling by car or boat you can easily reach other towns on the lake in relatively short time, Desenzano del Garda, Sirmione, Peschiera del Garda, Gargnano, Toscolano Maderno, Limone sul Garda, Manerba del Garda and San Felice del Benaco. Some of these towns are easily reached by bicycle.
A special mention should be given to Gardone Riviera famous for its historic buildings especially the house-museum of Gabriele d’Annunzio: Il Vittoriale degli Italiani.
Nearby Valtenesi merits a visit if only for the vineyards. If you prefer a drive the internal road connecting Puegnago del Garda, Polpenazze, Soino del Lago and Padenghe sul Garda is most enjoyable.
A little more distant but also very interesting are Valsabbia, Valvestino, Lago d’Idro and Lago di Ledro. A short distance after Desenzano del Garda you will find the battle site of San Martino della Battiglia and Solferino famous during the Italian Revival (Il Risorgimento Italiano).
Also on the other side of the lake are the towns of Malcesine, Bardolino, Lazise and Torri del Benaco.
Finally Riva del Garda and Torbole in the Trentino area and the Waterfall of Varone nearby.
