Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

You couldn’t wish for a better location than Hotel Bologna. Stay here and you’ll be right in the centre of Bardolino, less than a five-minute stroll from the lake and within touching distance of the bars, shops and restaurants. The hotel is proudly run by the Andreoli family, who we’ve worked with for many years. They treat their guests like old friends so we’re confident you’ll have a great holiday here.

The hotel is quite traditional with a typical Italian décor. There’s a small garden outside with a terrace - it’s lovely to sit here and admire the colourful flowers or quietly read a book. On a warm day, we like to head to the pool, which is small but a welcome relief on a sunny day. There’s even a bar service, so you don’t have to leave your comfy spot all day.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Bardolino

A holiday to Bardolino means enjoying lots of excellent wines. The town's surrounded by a stunning scene of orchards, olive groves and vineyards. Plan your trip for around the end of September and you’ll be able to enjoy the Bardolino Wine Festival that celebrates the town’s namesake wine - a light, fruity red that pairs perfectly with fish.

It’s not just about the wine though. The town has a busy main square filled with cafés, restaurants and upmarket shops. Evening choir and music concerts are often held here during the summer, making it a great place to spend an evening people watching and enjoying local food. The square leads down to a pretty harbor where you’ll find miles of lakeside promenade that’s perfect for walking or cycling - it’ll take you all the way to the neighbouring resort of Garda. If you’re after something more strenuous, there are plenty of walking trails nearby. Choose from over 20 that head up into the hills that surround the town. Some of these lead to towns on the lake while others take you to some fantastic viewing spots of the sparkling lake from above.
