Garda Holidays

A charming resort on Lake Garda's eastern shore

The bustling resort of Garda is on the Eastern shore of Lake Garda, where the lake broadens and the scenery becomes more gentle. Garda has a backdrop of hills, covered with olive groves, cypress trees and the famous Valpolicella vineyards. In the centre, historic buildings such as the Venetian Palace of the Captains rub shoulders with sophisticated cafés and colourful ice cream parlours which line the wide and attractive tree-lined promenade. The shopping here is varied and the large lakeside Friday market is a popular tradition. Much of Garda is traffic-free, so you can stroll safely around the old cobbled streets. Regular ferry and hydrofoil services access other lakeside resorts and you can enjoy a delightful lakeside walk to neighbouring Bardolino.
