Lake Garda is located in the north-east of Italy and is the largest of Italy’s northern lakes.

Lake Garda stretches between the Alps and the Dolomites, embracing a diverse scenery and sheltered in a natural sun trap.
Most of the lakeside towns are very popular as holiday resorts, all differing in character and well connected by ferry services. Sunway offer a wide selection of resorts including Peschiera, Sirmione, Gardone Riviera, Riva Del Garda, San Felice Cel Benaco and Toscalano Maderno.
