Captivating Lake Garda has attracted the rich and the famous to its shores for many years. At 370 sq km, it’s the largest of the Italian lakes, spanning three of Italy’s most beautiful regions Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto. The scenery has a Mediterranean feel to it, with vineyards, olive groves and citrus orchards dominating the landscapes, mainly due to the region’s uniquely mild micro-climate.
