Top Things To Do In Lake Garda
Anyone who visits Lake Garda, whether they know it or not, will experience the majestic Monte Baldo. It’s ridge runs along the north east shore spanning the Trento and Veneto regions. The 40km ridge which peaks at 7, 277ft ridge providing a monumental backdrop that can be seen from most parts of the lake. It becomes even more dramatic when capped with a luminous blanket of snow during the winter and the spring . On some days this incandescent strip of white seems suspended in air between the heavens and the lake creating a truly awesome sight to behold. Monte Baldo

Monte Baldo for Everyone
My visit involved taking photos of the spectacular views, taking photos of wildlife (animals and plants), taking photos of the parachutists running off of the mountain and I also managed a 4km walk. It is worth noting that when the top is still covered in snow the walking is limited, of course if you are an experienced hiker then there are more opportunities.
