Few steps from Lake Garda, Mantua, Brescia and Verona
Lake Garda is one of the most popular destinations in Italy, it offers spectacular landscapes all different from each other, on its shores, there are characteristic villages each with its own story. Peschiera del Garda was a Venetian republic fortress surrounded by walls, while Sirmione stands out for its elegance and refinement and it is famous for its Scagliero castle. Another must-see place is Malcesine, situated between the shores of the lake and the Baldo mountain. Here you can reach the top of the Baldo mountain by cable car, a few km away from the city center. A little far, but deserves to be seen due to its historical value, there is the Vittoriale delgli Italiani, built between the 1921 and the 1938 in Gardone Riviera by Gabriele D’annunzio.
There are some unmissable places to visit, near our holiday farm, one of these is Verona (37 km away) where you can see the Arena (the historic amphitheater still used during the opera season), the romantic balcony of Romeo and Juliet and Ponte pietra that is an important panoramic viewpoint. Mantua is also 37 km away from us, it is located in the middle of three artificial lakes and you can explore the Mincio park that offers a perfect union between history and nature. Te palace and Ducale palace are a must to see in this area. Venice (about 150 km away) does not need explanations since it is already famous all over the world thanks to its canals and gondolas and how not to mention its magical carnival!
There are many amusement parks near Lake Garda, one of the most popular ones is Gardaland (located 8 km away) that ensures fun for kids and adults. Next to Gardaland there are also Movieland Park, where the stuntmen will take you to the world of cinema and Caneva Aquapark, the biggest aqua-park in the area. An alternative could be the Cavour aqua-park, smaller than Caneva, but full of greenery, which is only 5 km from us, in Vialeggio sul Mincio. To see exotic animals up close by car or on foot, there is the Parco natura viva (15 km from us). The lake is also known for its thermal centers, like the thermal baths of Sirmione, the big Villa Cedri park in Colà, Aquardens in Pescatina or the Gardaqua located in Garda.
You can go by bike, on foot or even by canoe and the Mincio park will always give you many emotions. The quiet flow of the river will take you to the shores of the lake at Peschiera del Garda, or proceeding in the opposite direction you will get to Borghetto (7km from us), located at the base of Valeggio sul Mincio and awarded as one of the most beautiful Italian boroughs. Nearby Borghetto, there is the Sigurtà park, an ancient garden of almost 600.000 square meters including many plant and flower species, among which water lilies, different types of tulips, iris, roses and many others. The flower bloom within the park makes the garden change during the year.
