Here in Lake Garda Italy it seems that the summer has finally arrived and I wanted to write a post describing what that meant to those who choose to spend their holidays here. Whilst thinking how to put it into words I came across an article in the Summer Garda magazine which expressed perfectly what I had a mind and echoes what I have already said on the Home and About pages. So for those of you who haven’t the opportunity to read the magazine here’s what they said:

“The curtains are up, another summer is on stage and it’s time for a new holiday season on Lake Garda, where boredom is thrown to the winds.

Once again this extraordinarily welcoming area on the shores of the largest and most beautiful of the Italian lakes, becomes an enormous natural stage for a rich and diverse calendar  of events and entertainment: food and wine festivals, sports events, classical concerts, rock concerts, village fairs and special initiatives  for our younger guests. Lake Garda combines nature and fashion, silence and folklore, relaxation and fun, art and culture……there’s something for everyone.

Whatever your idea of a holiday there couldn’t be a wider choice. The alternatives of how to pass the day are endless, both for those looking to quietly relax and those seeking new sensations. You may well ask yourself…what’s on today?

A healthy walk along a new nature trail or basking under the sun on a quiet beach?

A stroll among the stands of a local market or trying out the delicacies at a wine cellar, oil mill or at one of the unmissable local fairs which are dedicated to excellent local food and wine?

Let it all go at a gig or relax at a classical music concert?

Watch the amazing sailing regatta or visit one of the many museums which tell the history of this region with a thousand faces?

A boat trip or a visit to a vinyard?

Garda Summer Magazine-Giornale di Brescia.

The article make Lake Garda sound like the perfect place to spend a holiday and it doesn’t even mention so many things like:

windsurfing, wake boarding, kite surfing, paragliding, horseriding, mountain biking, the Opera in Verona, day trips to Venice or Brescia or Milan or one of the many beautiful city’s in easy reach. Firework display’s, fishing, canyoning, flying, golf…….the list is endless and as it say’s above…..there is something for everyone

The Garda Summer magazine which is issued with the Giornale di Brescia on the last Friday of every month is a hive of information about what’s on in each town around the lake. If you miss out you may be able to pick up a copy in your local tourist information office or keep a look out in the cafe’s and bars as they often have a copy laying about.

Don’t worry if you miss it you can always check back to where we will try to keep you updated.
