Lake Garda brings the gift of a last and unespected breath of Mediterranean before reaching the passageways of the Dolomites heading north. Here, the intense blue of Lake Garda touches the mountains; the olive trees’ branches rustle with the wind, and the lemons mature in the sun.
It is the largest lake in Italy, located about half-way between Brescia and Verona it is part of the border between the Lombardy and Veneto regions. Lake Garda brings the gift of a last and unespected breath of Mediterranean before reaching the passageways of the Dolomites heading north. Here, the intense blue of Lake Garda touches the mountains; the olive trees’ branches rustle with the wind, and the lemons mature in the sun. Along its enchanting shores there are several interesting towns, such as the ancient fortified town of Sirmione, whose picturesque Scaliger Castle dates from the 13th century. The Roman poet Catullus had a villa here. Culinary traditions combine the tastes of the Mediterranean cookery with the delicate tastes of lake, with an eye to the traditional mountain dishes. The mild climate favours a lush vegetation: the products of the earth are always abundant and tasty. Food is rich in fragrance, taste and unique ingredients all year round.
