Park
“It’s a paradise on earth: you can easily spend a day there, walking or cycling between flowers and ponds with big beautiful fish. There is also a well designed maze, high enough to have real fun. Perfect to have a picnic, chill out and have a romantic time, I suggest one day for it. It’s 1.30h by bus from here.”

Historic Site
“a hillside estate in the town of Gardone Riviera overlooking the Garda lake. It is where the Italian writer Gabriele d'Annunzio lived after his defenestration in 1922 until his death in 1938. References to the Vittoriale range from a “monumental citadel” to a “fascist lunapark”, the site inevitably inheriting the controversy surrounding its creator.”

“LANDSCAPE EXCURSIONS Wines and Cellars: an itinerary from Peschiera to Desenzano, allows you to savor LUGANA, a particular wine, an ever-growing success that draws this tiny area between Lombardy and Veneto, one of the excellences of Lake Garda. Walking along the via del Lugana you can discover not only wine cellars that work by passion, but also savor another excellence: OIL Cycling in the green: if you love moving around seeing only the green of a natural park accompanied by birds singing, the Mincio cycle path offers you this possibility. In fact Mantua can be reached from Peschiera with the cycle path that passes along the towpaths of the Mincio river, crosses the Visconti bridge in Borghetto and arrives in Mantua”

Admire the blue shades of both lake and sky melting into an amazing landscape offering a view in all its variety: From snow covered Alpine peaks to the rough profile of the closer mountains and the soft scenery of the lowlands.

Nightclub
“I will be sincere: never been here! But judging from the queue on Friday and Saturday evening it must be the best disco!”

Bar
“La Torre was described by some of my friends as the best 'club' they ever been to. The scene is so romantic, due to the stunning beautiful tower, the garden and the lake view. It is jut a place you will never forget. During the week it is more calm, you can relax at the piano bar and order drinks inside or then sit by the lake. On Friday and Saturday instead, after 23pm, music starts and the place will get full of people ready to dance! When it is not full you can park in front of it, otherwise during weekends, I suggest to park at Casino' which is 300 meters far from La Torre. Cocktails price is around 10-15 euros, which is totally worth it for the amazing location and drinks quality!”
