Lake Garda – Italy

Lake Garda, Italy – A Perfect Spot for romantic Wedding Ceremony
Lake Garda is Italy’s largest lake and stays on as practically unknown to a regular traveler. But it is undoubtedly worth having your wedding there as it has something for everyone. And locals in the area are very much united by the Italian flag.

The 50-kilometer long Lake Garda is one of the most breathtaking lakes in Italy. Encompassed by rugged hills and flourishing vegetation, the lake has a fjord-like formation with its southern part wider than its northern part. The lake spot also enjoys the mild and comfortable Mediterranean climate which means you have no regret if you choose it as a venue for your forthcoming wedding.

The beautiful Italian town of Sirmione – Lake Garda

Getting married at one of the wedding venues located there such as Malcesine castle implies that you and your guests are getting exposed to a vast lush environment filled with many different trees like palms, cypresses, orange, and lemon groves. You will be enthralled by the vibrant blue color of the lake’s clear water. The neighborhood around the Italian Lake Garda offers a boatload of opportunities for fun, relaxation, and recreation.

The lakeshore is occupied with many charming harbor towns. One of most liked ones is Sirmione, which lies on a narrow piece of land that extends to the lake’s southern shore. The city is a must-see because of its many points of interest, which include the Grotte di Catullo and a 13th-century castle. Grotte di Catullo is not a grotto but indeed a ruined Roman villa on the edge of the peninsula. The other outstanding towns around the lake include Bardolino, Lazise, and Garda. All these towns are connected by ferry and have links to the lakeside path.

The lakeshore is also an ideal spot to go for leisure biking. Many easy biking itineraries enable you to explore the attractiveness of the Garda Lake Region fully. Fortunately, rental bike service firms can be found all around the lakeshore. Also, many hotels provide you with free use of bikes to visitors. If you like beaches, you can find beautiful sandy stretches at the southern shores of the lake. If you head out to the northern part, you will be greeted by rocky but beautiful cliffs.
The clear water of Lake Garda is an excellent setting for a range of water sports like sailing and windsurfing. When looking at the lake, make sure to take the time to visit Isola del Garda, the charming island at the center of the lake. Although it is private property, you can arrange for a tour around the island and its superb villa, which has neo-Gothic and Venetian architecture. Besides these many attractions, there are also fascinating hiking trails that highlight different views of Lake Garda.

You can find Lake Garda in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, where the Dolomite Mountains dominate the skyline. Austria once occupied the northern section of the lake. There is a regional train service that stops at the stations of Desenzano and Peschiera Del Garda, which are situated in the south of the lake. The closest station to the northern part of the Italian lake is in Rovereto. The nearest airports to the region are Brescia and Verona. There are also buses that run between Milan and Venice and go around the lake. During summer, there are catamaran and ferry services available to those who want to take a look at the lake.

All these features of Lake Garda, Italy show that it is indeed a perfect spot to hold an extravagant and illustrious wedding ceremony. If you are planning a Lake Garda wedding, we really do recommend to take a quick flight over and explore the area.
