Planning a holiday in Lake Garda? Make the most of your time in this beautiful part of Italy and plan some excursions to ensure you see as much as possible. Lake Garda is the ideal base for exploring the north of Italy, and if there are a few places on your ‘must-see’ list, try our new excursion packages – a great value way of booking multiple tours.
Italy’s top amusement park sits on the south-eastern banks of Lake Garda, so it’s perfect for a fun day trip – particularly with kids. Gardaland has fantastic rides, entertainment and shows, with lots of place to eat and drink. For the adventurous, the rides are brilliant, including the heart-stopping Space Vertigo and legendary rollercoaster Oblivion.
Gardaland has an educational angle, too. The themed realms include geography and space, and there’s a fantastic Sea Life Aquarium for learning all about the world underwater, with interactive rock pools, turtle shelter and jellyfish discover zone.
Wine lovers, you’re in luck. Lake Garda is a wonderful wine growing region, and our Wine Tour gives you the full wine experience. You’ll visit the Grigoletti winery in the beautiful Lagarina Valley, where the owners will take you through the vineyard and teach you about their wine production – with plenty of sampling, of course.
Next, you’ll explore the famous Cantine Ferrari, award-winning producer of sparkling wine. All of Cantine Ferrari’s wines are Trentodoc, and you’ll get to see the care that goes into maintaining such quality vineyards in their mountain viticulture.
