Culture and Events

Lake Garda is a unique destination and getting around to discover the culture and local traditions is easy at any time of the year. The lake is served by an efficient public ferry system, allowing visitors to cross from shore to shore with their car or on foot to simply stroll from one town to another. Small restaurants, often trattorias, are scattered everywhere and are a distinctive feature of the small ports and historic alleyways.
