Peschiera Holidays

An old fortified village, just where the pretty River Mincio meets the lake

Peschiera is situated where Lake Garda’s waters flow southwards to form the River Mincio. Striking medieval walls fortify the river borders of the Old Town. Peschiera’s focal point is the delightful pedestrianised centre with bustling streets full of all kinds of shops, churches and riverside cafés. Locals and tourists relax here in the evening as colourful lights reflect in the waters of the Mincio. The resort has two beach areas, both a 10 minute walk from the centre, a small harbour and pathways that lead along the old walls. It has a train station and a regular ferry service connects it to other lakeside villages. For families, both the Gardaland and Caneva World theme parks are a short bus ride away. Our hotels in Peschiera promise you a pleasant stay.

Please be aware that this resort has a telephone rep service. 

Festivals

Verona Opera

Verona Opera

A night at the opera in the ancient arena in Verona must surely be one of life’s great experiences even if you’re not an opera buff. The 2020 programme (13 June - 5 September) with all-time favourite Aida by Verdi loved for its lavish scenery and costumes. A new stage design for Carmen by Bizet, there are also performances of Nabucco by Verdi, as well as Turandot by Puccini. If you are staying in any of the main resorts on Lake Garda, we can book most performances (listed on the Verona Opera page) and transport to & from Verona is included in addition to your opera ticket.

Aperitivo Time

Sharpen your appetite with a pre-dinner drink! The bars in Italy fill around 6pm as the locals observe the tradition of the aperitivo. If you’re down by Peschiera harbour, drop into the Tortuga – lake views and reasonable prices! The aperitivo of choice in this area is the spritz aperol, a mixture of sparkling white wine (maybe prosecco), soda, and aperol liqueur – with a slice of orange. The most popular nonalcoholic option is the gently bitter Crodino. Served chilled, it is a blend of infused herbs and fruit. Tastes alcoholic but it isn’t.
