5. Lago di Garda
Just 20 minutes outside Verona, you will find Italy’s largest lake, Lago di Garda. If you are lucky to be driving, take the road around the lake and visit Salò, Limone and Malcesine before stopping at Punta San Vigilio for what we believe is the best sunset you can experience anywhere. If you are travelling by train, Peschiera Sirmione and Desenzamo are great destinations for a day visit and to enjoy their many lake-side beaches.
