Lake Garda Holidays

Lake Garda is located in the north-east of Italy and is the largest of Italy’s northern lakes. Widely regarded as one of Europe's most breath taking sights Lake Garda has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday; a fine climate, mouth-watering cuisine, stunning luscious scenery, ancient Roman ruins, quaint towns and pretty villages dotted along the shores. 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. The lake is long and slender with the southern lakeshore low with rolling land whilst the northern lakeshore is dramatically different with its fjord like inlets and surrounding mountains and cliffs. There are various ways to get around the lake with the most appealing option probably being to take one of the many ferry services. You can pick up a timetable at any of the information / ticket kiosks at the various jetties. Buses, hydrofoils and car hire make up the other options.
