The Lakes

Lake Como is peaceful and relaxed, Lake Maggiore is romantic and sophisticated and Lake Garda is a bustling summer playground. That may be oversimplifying the allure of northern Italy’s three major lakes (all share stunning scenery, elegant lakeside towns, a rich historic and artistic heritage and plenty of beaches and watersports), but threes no denying the obvious family appeal of Lake Garda. Largest of the trio, it has over 120 beaches and a wide range of places to stay, from villas to campsites. The medieval fortress town of Sirmione makes a great day out, but the real clincher as far as kids are concerned is Gardaland, Italy’s answer to Disney World.
