Salò Holidays

Holidays to Salò mean relaxed lakeside lunches and gentle walks along the shore

Salò is one of the most unspoilt towns on Lake Garda. Think Belle Epoque squares with charming cafés, boutiques and grand townhouses. It suits relaxed days of enjoying scenery and long lunches. It’s not difficult to find a nice quiet spot here to relax. We love strolling along the promenade every evening before dinner – it’s one of the longest in Lake Garda so you can work up an appetite before tucking into some local food and wine.

What to see on a Salò holiday

Salò town gets livelier on Saturday when the market comes so make sure you're around for a spot of shopping. During the evening it’s not uncommon to hear live music in venues along the lake - we love grabbing a drink and soaking up the atmosphere. It’s right next door to Gardone too so you can easily explore the Heller Botanical Gardens.

Venice Classic from £74 per person (full day)

Venice is not to be missed! This excursion allows you to explore the city with a guide and at your own pace. You’ll arrive by coach and grab a water taxi to the centre. You’ll also have the option to add on a gondola ride (payable locally). There’s plenty of time to take in sights of the Basilica, Doge's Palace, St Mark's square and the Rialto bridge  – this is the perfect introduction to one of Italy's most magical cities.

Departs: Tuesdays and Thursdays

Verona from £49 per person (full day)

Verona is one of Italy’s most charming little cities. This day trip dips into the romance of the medieval city, reliving the scenes from Romeo and Juliet while wandering around through the cobbled streets and past ancient buildings. The impressive 2,000-year-old Roman arena is one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world and is currently home to the Verona Opera, and the marble paved shopping street of Via Mazzini leads you to the stunning Piazza Delle Erbe.

Things To Do

Things to see and do

We love just walking around Salò and its neighbour, Gardone. Bring your camera as you’ll want to snap away every time you come across a charming piazza or Art Deco building. You can stretch your legs along the promenade and look out over the lake – join the locals in the evening and take in the bustling atmosphere. To get further afield, take a ferry to one of the other resorts on the lake. The southern resorts are easy to get to and Bardolino and Garda are just a hop across the lake. If you enjoy gardens and art, then the Heller Botanical Gardens are a must.
