Much favoured by the Italians themselves, the pretty resort of Desenzano on the southern shores of Lake Garda oozes character and historic charm. This is a truly welcoming resort with a friendly atmosphere, perfect for families and couples alike.

You can while away pleasant hours in the town centre with its stylish boutiques and antique shops, stopping for coffee or a bite to eat at one of the many pavement cafés, restaurants and trattorias that line the piazzas. Regular classical and jazz concerts are held in the main square in summer and there is an antiques market on the first Sunday of each month (except August).

Desenzano has three beaches on the lake, ideal for lazing in a deckchair and soaking up the views. The nightlife here is among the best on the lake, with activity on the piazzas continuing well into the early hours.

A public boat service links the resort with other villages around the lake, while Milan, Venice and Verona are just a train ride away.

    Gardaland

    Gardaland Adventure Park will appeal to families of all ages. There are themed lands and enough fantasy, adventure and adrenaline pumping rides to ensure that everyone has the time of their lives here.

    If it’s thrills and heart pumping spills you’re after, try out the Blue Tornado, Magic Mountain and Raptor roller coasters and if you’re feeling very brave, try Oblivion:The Black Hole. If you wish to take to the water, try the Jungle Rapids or the Colorado log flume.

    For the younger tots, there is plenty to keep them entertained here too. The brand new Peppa Pig Land is sure to keep them happy. Visit Peppa’s famous house, sail on the exciting pirate ship with Peppa, or fly up to the clouds in colourful balloons. This will, for sure be the highlight of the little ones trips.

    If the family needs a change of pace, there is also a Sea Life Aquarium here, where you can explore deep under the water in the Shark Tunnels and discover amazing fish, jellyfish and seahorses.

    Gardaland also offers a personalised, tailor made service to guests with special needs such as visual limitations, reduced mobility, autism and down syndrome. It is designed specifically to make sure that people with disabilities can have the most fun experience, with a customised itinerary based on their specific needs.

    Tickets can be purchased in advance from the Gardaland website or from the park’s ticket office on site.

    Get there early! You’re going to want as much time as possible!
