Garda's Lake


The landscape is quiet, dominated by the warm tones of blue and green. The villages along the eastern coast of the lake seem to be wrapped in a rather melancholic and dreamy atmosphere, like small jewel boxes that still preserve great architectural and artistic treasures, an earth smelling green olive trees and yellow lemons.
The background is towered by the different vegetation of Mount Baldo and the Lessinia area, with their ancient-tasting panoramas: romantic and suggestive scenarios, inlets, small ports and paved streets that have charmed many a poet and writer in every age. Take Goethe, for example, who wrote in his Travel to Italy: "This evening I was about to go to Verona, but I would have missed a marvel of nature, a fascinating view, the Garda lake; I did not want to miss it, and I have been generously rewarded by that change".
The Garda Lake, also called Benaco, is the largest Italian lake. It owns its success to the clear waters and beautiful medieval villages built along its coast, but also to its unique climate determined by the barrier of the Alps and the large mass of water. Mild summers and winters favour the growing of olive and lemon trees, and a thick sub-Mediterranean vegetation has developed all around its shores.
Another peculiar feature of the area is wind: there are approximately 40 different winds blowing, sometimes gently, sometimes with more rush. It is also due to these winds that the Garda lake has earned itself a reputation for sailing sports, which attract thousands every year.
