One day whilst staying in Verona, we took a day trip out to Lake Garda, which is about 45 mins on a bus away. Why? Because it was so, so hot. We needed to go for a swim. We are glad we did though, it’s a super beautiful lake, and as you can see in the photos, we were treated to an incredible sunset due to some kind of haze that was over the water and the mountains. It was great. We visited the towns of Lazise, Bardolino and Garda, taking a ferry between the first two and walking between the second with many swimming stops along the way. The water was not as clear and nice as the lakes of Switzerland, but it certainly was nothing to complain about! We’d highly recommend a visit here if you are ever in the area.
