Italy, Lake Garda



A lively resort on Lake Garda's southernmost shores

A holiday in Desenzano combines a picturesque lakeside resort setting with the vibrant atmosphere of a thriving Italian community. Social life is focused on the many bars, cafés, pizzerias and restaurants in the historic centre and on the pedestrianised shopping area. Narrow streets lead up to the medieval castle that overlooks the town and offers panoramic views of the lake. Desenzano has two harbours and two public beaches. The resort has the best ferry and hydrofoil services on the lake so the main lakeside towns, including Garda, Peschiera and Sirmione, are very accessible. Bus and train connections are excellent and Verona, Venice and Padua are within easy reach.
