Travel tips for the weekend: Lake Garda

If you like the coupled lake and mountains and you have not done any plans for this (or for other) spring weekends, our advice is to visit the Lake Garda . Greater Italian lake, it is nestled between the provinces of Brescia, Verona and Trento and its coasts are a succession of characteristic villages and suggestive beaches. Depending on your tastes, you can relax in the sun on the beautiful beaches, try windsurfing, go hiking in the surrounding mountains, visit fortified citadels or the home of a great, eccentric poet and try the exceptional local gastronomy. Do not be fooled by the latitude, here the climate is Mediterranean and at this time of year the flowering bougainvilleas sprout from all the gardens.
