Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Poignantly situated on the shores of Lake Garda and within a stones throw of the centre of Gardone itself, The Savoy Palace has been home to both international royalty and movie stars alike since its inception in 1904 and grand reopening in 1999.
The interior is a delicate and at times eclectic mix of the modern and traditional Italian designs with influence taken from the Art Nouveau and Neo Classical movements scattered throughout. Marble floors and columns, original stone and touches of gold leaf are a testament to level of care and attention this hotel has been given and the calibre of service from its staff. A firm favourite of Inghams guests for well over a decade, the Savoy Palace offers exceptional levels of service with a stellar reputation for its cuisine as their head chef has created a bespoke and first class menu for the hotel from the Angelo Landi restaurant on site. Dishes range from classic vongole made with local ingredients to more daring feats such as venison fillet and octopus risotto all of which is served on the stunning Gabriele d'Annunzio terrace during summer months which offers an unrivaled and panoramic view of the spectacular azure waters of Lake Garda and the mountains beyond.

Rooms at the Savoy Palace are uniquely styled from with traditional colours of emerald, Perussian blue and rich cream running throughout. The attention to detail is in the Persian style carpets, antique furniture and hand finished designs which allow you to step back in time to the glamorous era of La Belle Époque.

The location of the Savoy Palace is undoubtedly one of the best on the lake with the ferry port just a four minute walk away between the Savoy Palace and the Grand Hotel Gardone. Ferries run from 8am each morning and well into the evening allowing you to explore the surrounding resorts of Sirmione and Malcesine across the water. The breath-taking Isola Garda which is the biggest island within the lake and home to a gorgeous array of flora, a Franciscan monastery and a Roman burial ground.
The Baia delle Sirene Park is also within walking distance of the Savoy Palace -or you can take one of the frequent local buses- and is one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Lake Garda. With a 2km stretch of untouched forest and clear water, this is the perfect spot to spend the afternoon before wandering into town for an Aperitivo or to explore the plethora of local shops and boutiques.

Gardone Riviera

The Gardone Riviera, situated on the west coast of Lake Garda consists of two separate resorts: Gardone and Salò. Surrounded by lakeside mountains, the Gardone Riviera has a fantastic subtropical microclimate that brings you warm balmy summer days. Gardone is situated around a pretty harbour, and Italian history and culture can be found in abundance in this area and there are plenty immaculately kept buildings and gardens. When not distracted by the stunning mountain and lakeside views, Gardone Riviera is also home to the Heller Botanical Gardens, which houses over 2,000 different species of subtropical plants. Exploring the other lakeside towns has never been easier either, with plenty of ferries running back and forth across the lake.

Things to do in resort

Gardone Riviera restaurants and food

The number of delicious restaurants across Lake Garda and Gardone Riviera cannot be recalled- there are just simply too many! Classic Italian cooking and heritage is embodied in the food and you can expect to see delicious fresh ingredients that have been sourced locally, homemade pasta, homemade sauces and ragus, and plenty of fresh fish from the lake.

Emiliano’s Restaurant in Gardone has been tipped as being excellent and the ideal location on the lake makes it a truly special place to linger over lunch. The hotels along the lake front also serve some delicious food (Hotel du Lac, Grand Hotel Gardone and Al Valerio are tipped as being good) and you can enjoy the spectacular views from the terraces.

 

Gardone Riviera bars and wine

It’s no secret that this little corner if Italy is a haven for the wine lover. With the Bardolino bi-annual 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 the Gardone Riviera without sitting on the lakeside promenade with a drink and watching the sun slip below the mountains.

Aquolinae Bar has some absolutely excellent views and also serves as a café during the day if it’s too early for a tipple. Hotel du Lac has a fantastic lake side bar and restaurant and set slightly back from the lake front (up in the hills) sits Dai di Moro bar (on Via Ceriolo) which has some absolutely spectacular views once you reach it.

 

Gardone Riviera shopping

In the immediate area of the Gardone Riviera you will find plenty of food shops, souvenir and gift stores and some crafts here and there.

If you are looking for some proper shopping, then why not make the most of our excursions to nearby Verona and Venice? When not touring the beautiful cities, you may find some time to explore the shops selling high-end Italian fashion and leather goods like shoes, handbags and accessories.

Lake Garda is also famous for its wonderful markets that are held throughout the summer in different locations. Antique and flea markets are held regularly during the months and can be a real treasure chest for those of us who like to trawl through the old trinkets and items looking for a gem. Fresh food markets are also held regularly and you can see the wonderful colours of the locally produced fruit and vegetables of Lake Garda.

 

Gardone Riviera spas and relaxation

Situated in Colà across the lake, near Peschiera is the wonderful Villa dei Cedri Spa, which attracts plenty of visitors every year. Large outdoor lakes overlooking the beautiful Lake Garda, are kept fresh by nearby springs and warmed to a toasty 33-34°c by thermal sources from deep underground.

When not enjoying the tranquil bathing lakes, there is plenty to do at Villa dei Cedri with a grand house/hotel, winter garden glass pavilion, sunbathing in the carefully manicured gardens, massages, beauty treatments, and a wellness complex including medical fitness/therapies, biosaunas, solarium, Turkish bath, and a relax zone.

Sirmione has one of the top natural spa complexes in Europe, Aquaria, with thermal baths made with the heat that comes from deep below the lake and mountains.

Garda Thermae sits near Riva del Garda and celebrates wellness and peace of mind, body and soul. Saunas, indoor-outdoor swimming pools as well as beauty and spa packages are on offer here.

 

Gardone Riviera arts, culture and events

Throughout the summer, there is an action-packed events calendar for the Gardone Riviera and the surrounding towns of Lake Garda. Including the bi-annual Bardolino Wine Festival, Musica Riva Festival in Riva del Garda, Garda Jazz Festival (also in Riva del Garda) and more. The nearby cities of Verona and Venice are accessible through excursions organised by Inghams, and you can even venture up into the nearby Dolomite Mountains to see the breathtaking natural beauty.

There are plenty more cultural activities available for guests who stay in the Gardone Riviera which can be read about under our ‘Activity Information’ section:
