I visited Lake Garda for the first time a long time ago. I only knew it from my drivings through to Verona. The drive itself was already breathtaking and beautiful. We drove over the South Tyrol. When I got to Lake Garda, I already felt at home. The nature, light and of course, the lake, created the most fantastic view.
We made a reservation for 5 nights at the Grand Hotel Fasano in Gardone Riviera. The hotel is simply a dream. When you get there, you are immediately welcomed in a very friendly and obliging way. Since many German speaking tourists spend their vacations at Lake Garda, the staff speaks German relatively well. For me, Italian is of course my priority.
The hotel is located at the picturesque Lake Garda, in a 12,000 square meter park full of palm and banana trees. The legendary hotel complex, at the edge of the Dolomites, between Venice and Milan, has been offering its guests top class services since the 19th century. The Grand Hotel Fasano was once a magnificent residence, which served as a hunting lodge for the Austrian Royal Family. Today, the family-run hotel offers an oasis of travel experiences within exotic surroundings. Tradition and modernity harmoniously merge in this retreat center.
The rooms and suites impose great taste, with warm cream tones, which creates elegant brightness that promotes well-being. Enjoy your day by relaxing at the hotel’s pools, swimming in the lake, and taking a deckchair where you can linger and relax all day long. Take a stroll through the lush gardens, or enjoy an Italian meal made with regional products in the beautiful dining room under the original ceilings of the 19th century residence. You can keep yourself busy all day long.
We had a room with a lakeview, you could enjoy the sunrise and sunset, depending on the weather.
If there is good weather, the beautiful terrace invites you out to have a drink, a glass of wine and a snack. The staff is very attentive and try very hard to fulfill your every wish.
There are also many other things that you can do and get to now outside the hotel. Gardone Riviera is a pretty little town with many nice little restaurants.
The hotel staff can guide you very well on places to go. We had dinner at the hotel’s own restaurant, called “La Darsena”, which is a few minutes from the hotel.

You can also go on a nice day trip to Verona. It takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes (67.6 km) by car if you take highway A4/E70.
After our stay at Lake Garda, we went to Venice.
