Best time to visit
If you want to head there during peak season, then July and August are ideal. The weather conditions are perfect at this time. Lounge in the sun, go for a swim and explore. Spring will be quieter and less crowded, but not quite so warm! Depends if you want a swim, maybe?
Getting around
If you’re not hiring a car or taking a tour from one of the nearby cities like Verona or Venice, public transport is available. Bus lines connect the different lakeside towns.
Stay Safe
If you are driving around the lake, then take care along the roads. There are some blind turns and speed traps. For tourists taking tours, the area is like most touristy places. Be aware of your belongings as you go around.
Money saving tips
Lake Garda can be an expensive place to stay, so basing yourself in nearby Verona may be a good option. Book a tour, and you’ll also save on transport costs.
