Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The best thing about Hotel Catullo is its location. It's in the centre of Bardolino right on the harbour and it has fantastic lake views. You're within easy walking distance of everything the town has to offer. Family-run restaurants, busy bars and the stunning lakeside promenade are all on your doorstep. The ferry port is less than a minute down the road, so it's ideal if you want to explore the lake. Regular ferries can take you to nearby towns like Peschiera or up to the rugged terrain and medieval castles of Malcesine.

This is a family-run hotel so you'll get a warm and friendly welcome. It exudes personality with antique statues, paintings and even the odd Vespa decorating the communal areas. The rooms have a traditional Italian design and every room has a balcony with lake views. There's a small pool at the back of the hotel that gets the sun all day. We love relaxing here with a cocktail from the pool bar! Don't leave without trying the hotel's restaurant, Catullo. It’s where you'll find some of the best pizzas in Bardolino, best enjoyed on sunny terrace beside the promenade.

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

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.
