Things to Do in Lake Garda

Whether you’re looking for family-friendly attractions in Lake Garda or things to do as a couple, these are the best places to visit…

Jump Aboard a Ferry

A great way to see Lake Garda is from the water and ferries make it easy to cross from one side of the lake to the other.

Shop at a Market at Lake Garda

Most towns around the lake have a weekly market where you can purchase freshly caught fish, meats, cheeses, fruit and vegetables, and other tasty treats.

Eat Gelato, Pizza and Pasta
