Tourists looking to stay in Italy often head for the big cities,
with Rome, Florence and Venice being particular favorites. But there is more to Italy than these crowded areas
though. Bardolino is one such alternative.
You can be forgiven for not having heard of Bardolino. Though the
town is well known by most Italians, it remains something of a mystery to many visitors from overseas. Located just

explore the beautiful region around Lake Garda.

Located on the south-west shore of the lake, Bardolino is part of
the region known as Veneto. This area is renowned for its wine and olives - you may well have seen olive oil from
this region in your local supermarket.
As you might expect, wine plays a central role within the
community, making this a great haven for wine lovers - you'll even find that Bardolino has its own dedicated wine
The greatest advantage that Bardolino has over many resorts is
its wonderful location, perched by the side of one of Europe's finest lakes. You can explore Lake Garda by boat or
via the regular ferry services that run from here.
For those who enjoy walking or cycling, you'll also find that
there is plenty to explore in the surroundings of Lake Garda.

big cities, Bardolino benefits from its proximity to Garda and the surrounding mountains.
Bardolino truly is a wonderful town and one that remains
relatively unknown by so many visitors to Italy.
