Tips and Inspiration for your European holiday

Unheard of by many Australians, Italy's largest lake, Lake Garda (Lago di Garda in Italian), is a great place to base yourself for a few days R & R. I've been lucky enough to visit Lake Garda on three separate occasions and the spectacular scenery never fails to impress. The lake is popular for swimming, boating and windsurfing, and the lakeside villages with their colourful houses and shops, add to the beauty.  With mountains either side, and its close proximity to Venice and Verona, Lake Garda really is the perfect destination.
