Hotel Astoria has a great lakeside position in Campagnola Bay, which is an area known for its surfing and beaches. Grab your towel and find a spot next to the lake or head to the water and try your hand at wind surfing, kite surfing or even paddle boarding. Malcesine’s centre is about three kilometres away. Get there on the footpath and cycle route that runs along the eastern shore of the lake – the hotel has bikes for hire. There’s also a tourist bus every hour (payable locally, approx. €1.20).
The hotel is quite traditional but the rooms are very spacious. They face towards the gardens or pool but we recommend upgrading to a lake view if you can. Some of the best views are from the terrace and this is where the evening aperitifs are served. Dinner is something to look forward to here with fresh fish from the lake and olive oil from the local groves.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.
