Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy located between three regions: Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Lombardy. In Roman times, Lake Garda was chosen as holiday location by the upper class, in particular Sirmione with its sulphurous springs. In the Renaissance, the nobles started building their villas on its shores, in contrast with the countryside setting, turning the Lake into an elite holiday destination. One of the first tourist destinations, as we intend it today, was Gardone Riviera, where, in 1975, Luigi Wimmer built a small hotel that later became part of the luxury Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera. Gabriele D’Annunzio built his last home, the so called “Vittoriale degli italiani”, not far from here. Today it is home to a foundation and it is open to the public for concerts and art exhibition. On the Veronese shore, on the contrary, tourism developed later thanks to the road “strada gardesana orientale”.
Today, Lake Garda is not only a tourist destination for its colourful villages, narrow road and clear water but also for its fully developed entertainment industry. Some of the most important attractions are Gardaland, a theme park that is constantly evolving and developing and offers its own accommodation facility, Canevaworld dived into two parks: one fully dedicated to cinema and the other is a water park; Parco Natura Viva, a wildlife park where visitors by foot or in a vehicle can admire many different species, also endangered, that are treated in the park and then released into the wild and last but not least, the stunning Parco Giardino Sigurtà, about 60 hectares of green oasis on the shores of the Mincio river hosting, besides thousands of types of flowers, the most important tulip blooming in Italy and the richest in the South of Europe.
