Pescheria – Lake Garda

Transfer time – 45 minutes

Pescheria is an old fortified village which means surrounded by medieval walls, located on the southern most tip of Lake Garda where the waters of the Lake flow out to form the River Mincio. The walls surround the old part of the town and make a striking sight with the historical buildings and beautiful scenery combined.

The days in Peschiera are as busy or as quiet as you want it to be. There are 2 lovely beaches within a ten minute walk of the town centre and numerous water sports, plenty of sun beds and crystal clear waters to swim too. The main focal point is the delightful pedestrianised centre with many shops, boutiques and lost of historical sights to explore, or sitting at one of the wonderful open air cafes and watching the world go by. Eating out is a wonderful experience with many local restaurants and cafes to try out and of course everyone goes out around 6pm for the tradition of appertivo’s.

If you are feeling energetic, there are many attractions and activities to keep everyone busy, there is some lovely bicycle and walks around the village walls, there are 3 horse riding stables and Garda Land theme park is not to far away either. You can also hop on a ferry and visit other Lake resorts and there is also local train service too.

Many people will take advantage of visiting nearby Verona, maybe taking in a famous Italian Opera or get in some amazing shopping in the designer boutiques or maybe a trip to Venice to ride in a gondola or seeing the amazing sights of St Marks Square. Other popular trips are half day wine tours or a visit in the Dolomites.

Peschiera is a wonderful resort for all tastes and caters for families too, with lots to do and some wonderful scenery, its no wonder people are returning here time and time again.
