Some tips can be found here, otherwise we are always available every morning to suggest the favourite destinations of the day:


One of the most popular vacation pleasures is definitely to peek at the shops and indulge in the pleasure of pampering yourself. Don't miss the opportunity for a sunset stroll along the lake and the Garda's historic centre, where shops stay open until late at night. For that rare day of poor weather, there is a large shopping mall only 10 km away with shops and restaurants, where you can even take a break on the way home, since it is located at the entrance of the Brenner motorway.

Weekly Market

The weekly markets on Lake Garda are like bazaars full of colours, aromas and impressions in the open air. Have a look at the stalls with excellent foods of the territory, olive oil and wine, browse the racks of clothing that have made Italy famous throughout the world, and happy shopping! Interesting mornings that are best concluded with an aperitif before lunch.
