Lake Garda is in northern Italy between Venice and Milan. It is Italy’s largest lake, 51km long and 17km at its widest point.  The distance around the lake is 158km. Picturesque villages, medieval castles and lakeside promenades surround the water. There is windsurfing, sailing and hiking in the lake’s many parks. The Dolomite mountains are not far away and can be seen towering over the lake. Lake Garda is well served by hydrofoils, catamarans and ferries.

History 

Lake Garda is an ancient battle ground, beginning with the Romans who under Emperor Claudius fought Germanic tribes to possess it. In the eighteenth century Napoleon Bonaparte won Lake Garda from the Austrians at the Battle of Rivoli.  Then in 1959 the Battle of Solferino during Italy’s second war of independence saw victory for Napoleon III, but with huge losses on both sides the Kingdom of Italy was finally proclaimed two years later. There was peace until 1943 when Mussolini established his Italian Social Republic in Salò, which became the effective capital of Italy until the end of the Second World War.
