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
“It’s the most famous attraction in Verona and you already know it. I just want to give you a couple of tips: -if you are planning to visit it in high season, please note that there will be a huge line! Check in internet the Verona Card that will let you skip the line. -if you love art and music, in the Arena there are plenty events all over the year. There are concerts, opera and ballets and, trust me, it’s a real good and unique experience to do. -if you want to eat watching the Arena you can find plenty touristic places near there...but if you want to eat as locals, I can show you some other places.”

Resort
“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”

Ski Area
“Live a blue colored dream from Malcesine up to the top of Monte Baldo. 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. Here the cable car “flies” up to 1,800 meters altitude within only a few minutes. The rotating cabins, unique in the world, let you experience new emotions every time you go.”
