There are so many things to do in Lake Garda that it would be impossible for one agency to know everything. As well as the official Lake Garda tourist information offices, which you can find in almost all of the major towns, there are now also many Pro loco offices.

Pro loco offices are set up to provide very local knowledge of the town or district they are serving and are usually run by people with a passion for the area so you can expect a great service.

Of course some are set up better than the others, and provide information in an easier to follow format. This map of the Lake Garda Tourist Information and Pro Loco offices will at least help you find the offices in the area you are are interested in.

As with all maps on this website I have tried to provide all the links you require to find the information you require. For best use of the map follow these instructions:

I’ve spent may hours searching to provide the info on this map so if you can’t find what you’re looking for then apologies…I will continue to update the map and your input is always welcome.

    Hi there
    I’d like to bring our children to Lake Garda. But I don’t know where is best and we would like the following :
    1. To erect our own tent.
    2. Cook our won meals frequently.
    3. Have use of facilities if possible.
    4. Be near to lake.

    It seems that one cannot erect a tent anywhere – Is this true? Or what must I search under?

    My wife is visiting family in New Zealand so it is myself and the 3 children aged 13,11 and 7 years. So, needless to say cost is a factor.

    La ringraziamo.

    Jack O’Loughlin.

      Hi Jack,

      You can’t just set up a tent anywhere but there are plenty of campsites around Lake Garda which will make 2, 3, and 4 possible

    I am wanting to travel to Lake Garda in October, probably about 17th October for one week with my Wife but I am unsure if the main places of interest will still be open. Has anyone had experience of travelling to Lake Garda in October and offer me any useful tips?

    Many thanks.

      Hi Stephen,

      Sorry for the late response. Lake Garda is and all year round destination, it depends what what you’re interested in but I’m sure you’ll find plenty to do. October is a great time to visit…the weather can still be quite warm. I spent the last 6 October’s in Lake Garda….at the very least you’ll be able to visit the historic lakeside towns without the crowds. I’m sure you will love it.
      Have a great holiday

    Caio, We are wanting to do a full day trip on the Lake in June stopping off at a few towns and then continuing on. Much like a hop on hop off trip, Can this be done, if so, what ticket should I purchase and what is the cost?

    • admin February 26, 2017 at 1:35 pm - Reply

      Hi Jenny, when you arrive you should go down to the ticket office in the town you are staying. They will have lots options of which towns to visit in one day, usually they have itineraries pinned up on the wall of the ticket office. remember the lake is very big so you will probably only want to visit 4 or 5 towns in one day. It is best to do some research on the towns before you go then you can get an idea of where to go. I am just in the process of creating a page for each town, they should be ready by the end of March so keep checking back. I will be updating the time tables and price list on our Lake Garda Ferries page soon.

    Hi. We are arriving by train at Desenzano in July and catching the LN027 bus tonRica Del Garda. Can you tell me when the July bus timetable will be available on line please. Also there are 4 adults each with a suitcase and I understand there will be a charge for this on the bus. Thank you for helping.

    • admin March 4, 2017 at 1:23 pm - Reply

      Hi Linda,

      I believe the timetable is annual but here is a document with some links to check timetables online. I’m unsure about paying for luggage but I have contacted the bus company and will let you know if they reply. Hope this helps. Roy

    We arrive Bergamo in July (early morning) and staying Desenzano del Garda. We are not hiring a car but wanting to use public transport, can you advise the best options to take to arrive Desenzano

    • admin May 27, 2017 at 3:23 pm - Reply

      Hi Tim, when you arrive at Bergamo you can either take a taxi or a coach. There is a ticket office for the coach just as you come out of arrivals, it’s not very expensive, you may have to change at Brescia. Hope this helps. roy

    Ciao. We are staying in Limone early July. I have booked the opera in Verona. What is the best way and most economical way of getting there. I have booked a night stay and want to travel back to limone the following day. Thank you.

    • admin April 24, 2018 at 10:22 pm - Reply

      Ciao, sorry for the late response. The most economical way to travel would be to get the Limone to Malcesine ferry and then pick up a bus. There is a Lake Garda – Opera bus service but the webpage for it is under construction, so you will need to keep checking back. Alternatively there is the regular Lake Garda to Verona bus route that you can work out the bus times from. If you are staying in a hotel they should be able to give you good advice. I hope this helps. Roy

    i am looking for a particular shop if it still running it sells drinks like the slush puppies but the shop has a load of different flavours. i am sure its in lazise but could be wrong i do know its was in the lake garda region. would you happen to know where a shop like this is thanks

    • admin April 24, 2018 at 10:24 pm - Reply

      Hi Mark, sorry I can’t help you to locate that particular shop but there are similar shops in most towns around the lake.

    Hi. We are visiting lake Garda in June and are flying into Verona. Are there any shuttle buses to transfer us to Bardilino? It will be evening time and not confident to get the train. I have only been able to find private taxis which are quite expensive. Many thanks Jane

    • admin April 24, 2018 at 10:46 pm - Reply

      Hi Jane, I believe there is a bus service between the airport and Bardolino, i think the line you want is 164 but I’m not sure how late the buses run. You would need to contact the bus company direct to check.
      Have you tried your hotel to see if the run a shuttle or transfer service?
      You could try the Lake Garda taxi company on my Lake Garda travel page, I’ve found them to be the most reasonable transfer costs. I hope this helps. roy

    Many thanks

      Hi Sarah, you should find the info you are looking for on our Lake Garda Ferries page. I hope this helps. Roy

    I am due to spend two weeks ( at two different hotels) around the Lake ,, I am unsure as to hire a car or travel around by Bus , water ferry.

    Are there any “local ” car hire firms I can hire for a shorter period ( rather than the full two weeks) ?

    I am arriving to Verona by train ,,, what cost would a taxi be to Barbarano ?

    thank you


    • admin July 5, 2018 at 2:28 pm - Reply

      Hi Rob, sorry for late response. I would recommend getting a hire car because by the time you’ve paid your return taxi fare it would almost cost the same. Then you’d have a car to get to places but I’d also choose to take the ferry some days. As far as I’m aware you’d need to book the hire car at the airport. Hope this helps Roy

    I would like to do a bit of fishing when we stay in Garda in September. Is there a permit I require, how would I get one? Also are there any shops which sell bait in the town?

    Thanks in anticipation


    • admin August 7, 2018 at 9:15 pm - Reply

      Hi Neil, unfortunately this is something I don’t have the answer to. I know that you can fish but I don’t know whether or not you need a permit, I will try to find out next time I go in a couple of weeks. I also don’t know if there is a fishing shop in Garda, but I expect so. I’m sure if you sent an email to [email protected] they will be able to answer you better. Would love some feedback, but will also try to find out. Sorry not much help in this instance. Buona vacanza. Roy

    Can you tell me if the ferry ticket offices on Lake Garda accept credit cards please, last time (2010) they didn’t. Similarly cable car. We are staying at Gardone Riviera next week.
    Many thanks

    We are staying in Garda for a week can we park a hire car and if so what is the cost

    • admin February 17, 2019 at 12:18 am - Reply

      Hi John, yes you can always find somewhere to park. There’s plenty of free parking around the lake but it’s usually time limited. If you do find s free space you will need to set your parking dial in the car to show what time you arrived. If you’re not lucky enough to find a free space you can expect to pay around €2 per hour on average.
