Gardaland Park

Live the adventure of Gardaland Resort, the first destination to have fun in Italy! Unforgettable emotions are waiting in the incredible Amusement Park, in a completely themed Aquarium and a fairy-like hotel.

Reviewed By AgaKan - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Gardaland resort is a great place to spend great time with whole family. The youngest children had a good time with attractions designed for them. The older ones - grandpa and parents :) - could collect large doses of adrenaline while riding on roller coasters - incredible infrastructure.
We had really fun staying there!

We visited Villa Calicantus after Reading trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Daniele is very passionate about what he does. He was very friendly and happy to answer any questions. The actual vineyard is small so don't expect a huge production. We tasted 3 different wines and did purchase a bottle of the final one! Each wine was accompanied by a different type of local cuisine - the first mushrooms in olive oil being our favourite, then local salami followed by 3 local cheeses. A lovely walk through the vineyards finished the evening with a chance to see the sunset across Lake Garda if the weather is on your side. Also thank you Daniele for your recommendation of Al Crespo in Garda - a wonderful tasting seafood tasting platter.

Lago di Garda

Lake Garda, unique for its enchanted villages, shopping and fun opportunities,is also the perfect setting for your activity and Water Sports holidays or week-ends. This is Lake Garda, the Essence of Italy!

Reviewed By Hayley L - New York City, New York

Absolutely STUNNING lake. Rugged Mountains make it a picturesque place to be. The town of Sirmione is unbelievably charming. The weather was horrible when we were there but didn't affect my opinion on the place. I would summer here every year if possible. The only negative was that my phone was stolen quickly out of the FRONT pocket of my pants within a 10 second window. I was shocked because this doesn't seem like a town where you need to be on high alert but BEWARE. The police didn't seem to care either. But overall, I will be back to this beautiful place just with caution!

Santuario Basilica Madonna della Corona

Reviewed By BVKG - Singapore, Singapore

This was not planned as part of our travel itinerary at Verona; we managed to free ourselves on the 3rd day and decided to visit this amazing and picturesque church.
In the morning on 23 Nov, we almost gave up our idea for a day trip out of Verona after spending 2 hours with 2 unsuccessful car rental companies. On our 3rd attempt, we managed to secure a car - thank God for making this driving trip possible.
Weather was cloudy and dark clouds were hanging on the Mountains when we arrived. From our experience, we were quite certain of a heavy downpour. We prayed that God will allow us to bring our kids through this holy walk and witness God's gift and creation. We didn't explain to our 5 and 8 year olds what they'll be expecting at the end of the stations. Even my wife thought we had missed the church after the last station since there were no sights of any (church) buildings; the only living things were the 5 Alpacas we saw gazing at the green fields.
I fast forwarded and walked ahead towards the bus stop; behind me came my wife and kids who exclaimed "Wow!" What they had witnessed was a real surprise because my 5 year old excitedly said "That's a nice castle!"
The walk (from the top) is definitely one of the best path taken with my family. The kids lighted up 2 candles each, said their prayers and made their offerings as an appreciation of God's love for us. The Santuario Madonna Della Corona is a must-do and shouldn't be missed.

This is a really nice car and bike museum, but the collection goes beyond wheels. Camera's, airplanes, music machines, and typewriters - very eclectic. Bicycle collection is fantastic, as are the motorcycles. Very well laid out and easy to navigate. Some really nice automotive gems!

Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore

Built in 1123-35, this ornate Romanesque church features adorned bronze doors and remarkable Cloister.

Reviewed By Santi P - Lisbon, Portugal

A veronese friend recommended me to visit this church, even if it is a bit far from all the other touristic attractions. And I am really glad I did! This church is really impressive, not only because of the architecture (it is one of the biggest churches in Verona) but also because of all the frescos on the wells, which add to the beauty of the building. There is also a fine medieval door with beautiful carvings in bronze.
I would suggest to anybody who visits Verona to make the effort of walking to this church: they won't regret it.

Ponte Scaligero

Connecting Castelvecchio and Adige, this powerful bridge was first built in the 1st century AD, destroyed during World War II, and rebuilt using parts of the original structure.

Reviewed By macleod2017 - Scottish Highlands, United Kingdom

A short walk from the Piazza Bra and you come to this fantastic old bridge scanning the river. Not many tourists seemed to stray from the main tourist areas to find this lovely bridge. Locals seemed to use it mostly. Worth the short walk away from the main area.

Borghetto sul Mincio

Reviewed By gabizolt - Ashdod, Israel

It is a picturesque, small, mediaeval village, set alongside and on the local Mincio river.
You can wander the alleyways, enjoy the scenery and surrounding scenic sights or even settle in one of the local restaurants.
It's a very photogenic, peaceful and romantic place, a perfect, place for an intermediate stop, or hanging out a quiet evening, if you travel in the region.
