Salo Holidays

An unspoilt lakeside town, full of squares, churches, bars and shops

Salo, a lovely Belle Epoque town full of handsome cafes, townhouses and hotels, many the result of rebuilding in the prevailing liberty (Italian Art Deco) style after a 1901 earthquake. Its history dates back to the Romans and Venetians. It is especially fun to visit for the big Saturday market, or on Sunday when the residents take their evening stroll on the promenade. Treat yourself to wonderful music of all kinds on the Lungolago (the lakeside promenade) which becomes the open-air setting for several bands. If you go on Thursday night you'll get the best sounds of the summer.

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 2018 programme (22 June - 1 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.

Things To Do

  • Walking

Salò is especially fun to visit for the big Saturday market, or on Sunday when the residents take their evening stroll on the long lakeside promenade. To get to know the Gulf of Salò, carry on along the promenade perhaps as far as the Conca d'Oro beach (40 minutes) for a drink and a great view of the town. Or visit the botanical gardens at nearby Gardone Riviera 10 minutes away on the boat. Salò holidays are for lovers of Italy and all things Italian.

Gardone & Salò Cycle Tour

A new way to explore the outer reaches of Gardone & Salò, discovering new places of interest and sampling some of the local specialities.

Laghetti Sovenigo | Moderate | 3 hrs approx

After meeting your professional cycling guide and collecting your trusted steed (a regular mountain bike) for the tour, the cycle tour heads along the lake through Salò and to Polpenazze to visit an ancient archaeological site from the bronze age, a fascinating UNESCO protected site. After a leisurely cycle you then arrive at the nature park of Lake Sovenigo, consisting of pretty flatlands and marshes criss crossed with small waterholes filled with lotus flowers. The cycle track takes you around the park and to the popular cantina of Delai Sergio to sample wines of the area accompanied by local specialities.
