If you choose to embark in Bardolino,at the end of the boat ride, get off at Torri del Benaco and savour an aperitif or lunch at the picturesque lakeside village (transfer to Villa Cordevigo about 20 minutes). Sunsets here are spectacular. We can also assist with rental of a classic sail boat and a Riva, with aperitif on board at sunset.

Borghetto, one of Italy’s 100 most beautiful walled medieval villages
What could be more fascinating than visiting a charming, ancient village where time seems to stand still … old water mills, flowers, lots of fish in the river and small water falls. The small village of Borghetto on the banks of the river Mincio, close to Peschiera del Garda (30 minute drive from Villa Cordevigo), is a perfect stop when on a biking tour or just for a quick visit when driving through. The area of Borghetto and Valeggio sul Mincio is renowned for its tortellini.
Verona, city of eternal love and Romeo and Juliet
When coming to the area of Lake Garda the stunningly beautiful city of Verona is a must. See the main sights in 2 to 3 hours with a private guide who speaks your language either on foot or jump on a bus tour to see the city. Verona is full of things to admire and do but do not forget to leave a couple of hours for the fabulous shopping. And something special from the end of June till the end of August: the open air Opera and concert season in the magical setting of Verona’s Ancient Roman Arena.
