  • Lake Garda, Italy, Gardone Riviera

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Du Lac is known for its friendly and warm atmosphere. And the location's fantastic too, directly on the lakeside promenade. Pull up a chair on the terrace and sit back to watch the world go by – that’s if you can take your eyes of the lake. This is a great spot to enjoy an ice cream from the hotel’s parlour.

The ferry point is right next to the hotel, so day trips to other resorts are easy and stress free. Take some time to explore Gardone too. The historic centre is beautiful and you can get to the Heller Botanical Gardens easily. When it comes to the evenings, Gardone has some fantastic restaurants to choose from. Or you can stay at the hotel and get a 10% discount in the à la carte restaurant. Get there early to get a seat on the terrace.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Gardone Riviera

Gardone Riviera is one of the most elegant resorts on Lake Garda. This is where you’ll find boutique stores, artisan gelaterias and tree- and flower-lined promenades with plenty of places to take a seat and enjoy the lake views. There’s a very sophisticated feel here. Think grand villas, historic buildings and baroque piazzas.

What to see on a Gardone Riviera holiday

This resort is perfect if you enjoy gardens. The Heller Botanical Gardens are close by and they have over 2,000 species of tropical plants and flowers. It’s a fantastic day out, you can easily spend hours wandering through the grounds. Make sure you visit other resorts on the lake too. There's regular ferries from her and Bardolino and Garda are just a short hop across the water.

Things to Do

Things to see and do

The Heller Botanical Gardens are a real gem for nature lovers. Designed by the internationally renowned artist, Andre Heller, the gardens are a showcase of pioneering ideas on landscape design and how to integrate are into the setting.

We love getting on a ferry and exploring as many towns as we can. Bardolino and Garda are just across the lake and are a great day out. Isola del Garda is the biggest island on Lake Garda – head here to discover the history of the Roman settlers and wander round the Franciscan monastery.

There’s plenty to do near Gardone itself, too. The Salò Duomo was built in 1450 and you can go and have a look inside. We recommend going to Il Vittoriale - a glamorous villa that overlooks the lake. It’s famous for being the home of the artist, writer and political activist Gabriele d’Annunzio. Today it’s a wonderful complex of buildings, gardens, museums and stunning statues.

Food & drink

This lovely little corner of Lake Garda is a haven for wine lovers. With the Bardolino wine festival happening on the other side of the lake and many of the delicious wines coming from the immediate area, it would be a mistake to leave without sitting on the lakeside promenade with a glass or two.

The food here is pretty great too – you’ll be spoilt for choice with the number of restaurants. You can expect fresh ingredients almost everywhere. Try the local fish or homemade pastas. We love Emiliano’s - it’s great for a filling lunch.
