We arrived at Peschiera fairly early at about 10am so we could spend a full day there enjoying the water and weather - from the train station it's a short 10 minute walk to a little pebble beach type area right next to the water where they have pedalos and fun things to rent out if you fancy, we were happy to just set up our towels and relax in the sun with a swim every hour or so to cool off and freshen up! The water is so beautiful, as you walk around the lake it changes colour from blue to turquoise and green and is almost clear in places too - there's lots of water sport activities on the water including parasailing, boat trips and jet skiing, so there's lots of fun to be had and it's great for all ages whether your a family, couple, or a group of friends.
The town itself is full of history and heritage, so if you don't fancy chilling by the water all day there is lots to explore and discover as it's an ancient Roman town - an easy way to see the town and area around it is by renting a Vespa and scooting around to take it all in! Plus there's a great selection of eateries and bars, as well as little food stops like gelato and pizza shops if you're just after a quick and convenient snack.
Whether you're in the town or resting by the water there is no escaping the stunning scenery surrounding the alpine region of Lake Garda, which was formed at the end of the last ice age. As well as the beautiful water the mountain range stretches for miles and can be seen from all around the lake. I thoroughly recommend it and we're already thinking of when we can return! There are lots of hotels in the region of Garda plus if you want to do it on the cheap then there's also lots of camping spots too. It was also the ideal day to be wearing my new K Jacques St Tropez sandals, i had them customised with the softest nude leather i've ever experienced, they make the absolute creme de la creme of saandals - definitely treat yourself to a pair for!
I'd love to know if you've been to Lake Garda or if you have an upcoming trip there, let me know :).
