Lake Garda is a choice destination for tourists. This is a part of Italy covered by forests and vegetation peculiar to Italy. It is also a great attraction for hikers because of its Alpine mountains.

Tripping was introduced to this beautiful corner of Northern Italy by Blessing Dau. She could not recommend it highly enough as a getaway destination if couples or singles would just want to unwind far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

This much needed and well deserved break was taken with her husband. She stated that they both enjoyed the peace and quiet, not forgetting the breathtaking views and just listening to nature. A very calming and relaxing feeling she said.

Blessing recommends a visit to several cities in the region, one of which is Sirmione, with its landmark Scarliger castle, Verona for its Coliseum now used as a theatre, Lago di Iseo, a small city with beautiful lakes and mountains. Most importantly she, advised, not to miss visiting the historical Romeo and Juliet garden made famous by William Shakespeare in Verona. She also recommends the legendary scenic drive in Strada della Forra, the tunnel where a scene of the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace was filmed.

In terms of accommodation, Blessing favours any of the small family lodges dotted around the area. Such places are perfect for the much needed peace and quiet. Their choice was the Hotel Degli Olivi which she described as having stunning views. Guests are treated to very delicious Italian breakfast, while dinner is a one choice, 3 course, very tasty, homemade meal prepared by the hotel owner. An experience she describes as memorable. Eating what Grandma made. For a meal at a restaurant, she recommends Leon d'oro at Iseo.

Further research came up with other tourist activities that people can embark on in the Lake Garda area. Some of which are, wind surfing, cycling, museum, and horse riding with special operators. For the tourist on a budget, sit down meals are more expensive, so the advice is to go for street food or fast food. For families with children, there are theme parks for their entertainment. Adults can enjoy wine tasting, paragliding and thermal baths all located in different towns within the region, lastly, do not forget shopping, also said to be fantastic experience.

Lake Garda has a dramatic mountain backdrop, it is made up of a collection of traditional towns and villages. It makes up part of Italy's iconic cities because, each town has retained its character and culture. The people live a very relaxed way of life, they love and celebrate life and the land. In the north you will find hillside harbour towns, while the south is filled with Olive and lemon trees which thrives perfectly because of the weather condition.

Tripping looks forward to visiting Lake Garda for ourselves hoping to experience its beauty, hospitality and splendor.
