Hello everyone from #GardaVisitor!
Today we will talk about the beautiful town of Garda (Benacus), a small town of the same name with the lake. The town is located exactly in the center of the gulf and partly stretches to form a small peninsula, which includes “Punta San Vigilio” and the “Baia delle Sirene” “.
An ancient medieval village, Garda is also very famous for “La Rocca”, a mountainous relief located south of the town that marks the border between the municipality and Bardolino. The view is spectacular from the top, both towards Garda and Bardolino. Strolling along the lake, a fairytale landscape appeared in front of me as in a postcard.
The historic center of Garda has its typical charm of the Venetian villages, going towards “la Rocca” I couldn’t help but think about the fact that other illustrious guests have passed through history through the streets of this beautiful place; Guests such as the Emperor Alexander of Russia, Winston Churchill etc. etc..
I recommend to friends of #GardaVisitor to visit not only the church of “Santa Maria Assunta”, the “Villa degli Albertini”, the “Palazzo dei Capitani” but also and especially “Punta San Vigilio”, a truly wonderful place, absolutely not to be miss, if in summer it is ideal for a regenerating bath (we are talking about one of the most beautiful beaches in the interior of the lake).
Do not miss the cultural events, in July there is the “Riviera Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh Award” dedicated to the two great actors who stayed in San Vigilio in the 1950s, as well as the “Regata delle Bisse”, an organized rowing regatta from the Lega Bisse del Garda which is held between June and August of each year.
Garda is a “must see” for anyone who decides to visit the lake. Don’t be disappointed!
As usual, I dedicate some shots taken in his daily life.
