A dream-like Italian holiday

Stay on the sun-kissed shores of Lake Garda, Italy's largest and most spectacular lake.

Must try: Carne salada. Seasoned and lightly cured beef, sliced thin and served raw or quickly grilled, is one of the regional specialities from Lake Garda's north.

Fascinating fact: The James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, starred Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko and several of the pretty towns bordering Lake Garda. The film's dramatic opening sequence was filmed with Alfa 159s chasing Bond's Aston Martin along the SS45 shoreline road and into the tunnels near Limone.

You say: "I stayed in Limone, which was very beautiful, as was the whole area around Lake Garda. The day trips were well organised and made all the more enjoyable by our tour manager."

Your Base: Lake Garda Hotels In Limone, Malcesine, Riva del Garda Or Torbole

Lake Garda is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, and each of the hotels in our elegant, stylish resorts has been selected to reveal the very best that the lake has to offer.

Limone

Named for the hillside terraces of citrus groves that surround it, Limone is a bustling resort on Lake Garda's western shore. Here, cobbled streets lead down to the lake and the lively nightlife offers a delightful counterpoint to relaxed, sunny days.

Malcesine

Malcesine's pretty labyrinth of narrow lanes and squares nestles on Lake Garda's north-eastern shore beneath green-sloped Mount Baldo. A cable car runs from the town to the summit, and there's also a 13th-century castle to explore.

Riva del Garda

At the northernmost tip of the Lake, Riva is one of Garda's most popular resorts. The town boasts excellent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants nestled among its pastel-painted buildings, medieval architecture and lakeside piazzas.

Torbole

East of Riva, Torbole is set in a natural amphitheatre in the foothills of the Monte Baldo mountain range. The resort has a lively cafe culture and a lovely lakefront promenade. There are beautiful views out across the lake, and water sports are available for the more adventurous.
