Weekend in Salò

Who says that winter is not the right season for a holiday in our Camping delle Rose on the shores of Lake Garda?

You might think that I am simply making yet another advertisement or that I am lying to you. In fact, today I am telling you about a place worth visiting this weekend: the town of Salò.

Overlooking the gulf of the same name on Lake Garda, Salò is enclosed to the west and south by the Colli Morenici and to the north by Monte San Bartolomeo, presenting a diverse landscape suitable for both mountain and lake lovers.

What to see in Salò

Salò is a town of great historical importance: first, capital of the Magnifica Patria during the Venetian domination and then, in 1943, a town of great importance to the Italian Social Republic, which was also known as the Republic of Salò due to the presence of important ministries in the town of the same name.

The cycle tourism and the pedal-assisted rise

bike rental on lake garda

Cycle tourism is by definition “tourism practiced driving by a bicycle”. But actually, cycle tourism is something more than that: it is a way to get closer to people and places, but on a deeper level.

The main features that cracterize this new proposal of tourism are two: the first one is related to the speed of movement, while the second one to the destination of the trip. As far as the speed of travel is concerned, cycling tourism proposes, unlike conventional means of transport, a speed at a human scale; it is therefore slow but, above all, sustainable. This allows to enjoy a direct relationship with the environmnet without damaging it. For this reason, many touristic organizations are preparing themselves to offer an electric bike rental.

As a direct consequence, in the case of cycle tourism, one cannot talk anymore about a way of travelling that sums “moving” to somewhere and “staying” in a specific place, but we could say that both staying and moving are part of one thing: as a matter of fact, it allows to live a deeper experience through your routes. Not only will you appreciate all the landscapes and cultural background of the places you are visiting, but you will also have the chance to truly connect with all the environment, wether it be natural or urban. The character of absolute originality of the cycling proposal is therefore that it replaces the traditional “tourist destination”  with the “route”: the very fact of moving through a territory, observing and knowing it, staying in a more or less programmed way for refreshment, visit or overnight, is the heart and essence of the tourist proposal.

Cycle tourism in Italy

According to the Tourism National Agency (ENIT), many tourist facilities are are equipping themselves more and more appropriately due to cycle tourists’ growing demand.

In particular, Italian and foreign cyclistss who choose to spend their holidays on a bike in Italy, tend to choose the northern regions. This because they offer many kilometers of quality bike routes and many additional services.                                                                                                  According to data, 61% of tourists is foreigner and 39% is Italian. This shows how this type of activity is appreciated also in dolce vita’s country.

Among all the available data, it emerges that in the regions of northern Italy there is a particular influx of cyclists not only in the summer months (as you might expect) but also in those immediately preceding and following (March and April, September and October).

The best bike routes from Moniga del Garda

North of Verona, Lake Garda is the most suitable for families and water sports among the Italian lakes. It is also the largest lake in Italy, extending from the alpine mountains to the northern edge of the Pianura Padana

The southern shore is lined with beaches and backed by low hills, while to the north, mountains and cliffs overlooking the lake, especially along the western shore. Its terrain offers Lake Garda a wide variety of attractions for sports-loving tourists, from constant winds for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing and also mountains for climbing, abseiling and mountain biking, all overlooking the lake.

At the same time, its location gives Lake Garda a year-round temperate climate where olives and lemons grow well. Furthermore we can find several well fortified castles, Roman remains and sites of interest for fans of the Second World War. Add long sandy beaches and a little bit of town with lakeside walks and cafes surrounding the postcard marinas, whose sole purpose seems to be the dolce vita, and Lake Garda truly has something for everyone.

You could easily spend a weekend at Lake Garda without having to find yourself in the situation of not knowing how to occupy the time.

Weekend on Lake Garda: what to visit?

Thanks to the countless number of localities on the Garda lakefront, it is possible to visit numerous characteristic towns of the place, among the best known, we find: Sirmione, Desenzano del Garda, Malcesine, Riva del Garda.

Weekend on Lake Garda: SIRMIONE

Sirmione-Weekend on Lake Garda

The picturesque town of Sirmione is located at the end of a long promontory that juts out into Lake Garda from its southern shore.

It’s hard to find a more charming entrance to a city: across  a bridge on a drawbridge and into the courtyard of a castle that looks like it was built for a movie set. The fortress surrounded by water was built in the 12th century by the Scaligeri, the ruling family of Verona, as part of their defensive network against Milan and was subsequently maintained by the Venetian Empire.

Visit its restored interiors and climb the tower for a panoramic view of lake Garda and the city. Before the Scaligeri, the Romans came here to bath in the sulfur springs, which today are the basis of a luxurious spa.

Expect crowds in elegant Sirmione on weekends, filling its expensive boutiques and cafes.

Weekend on Lake Garda: DESENZANO DEL GARDA

Desenzano del Garda-Weekend on Lake Garda If you arrive at Lake Garda by train or from the A4 motorway, Desenzano del Garda is the place where you will probably see Italy’s largest lake for the first time.

Just west of Sirmione, it is a lively village centered on a basin of the tourist port and on the piers from which steamboats and hydrofoils leave for the towns around Lake Garda.

There isn’t much left of the castle that once crowned its hill, but Villa Romana, a Roman villa, has been excavated near the historic center and features impressive mosaics. The parish church preserves a painting by Tiepolo.

With numerous bars and restaurants and convenient boat connections, Desenzano is a great base for exploring the lake. Most of the best beaches on Lake Garda are found along this southern shore.

Weekend on Lake Garda: MALCESINE

Malcesine-Weekend on Lake Garda

Malcesine is a well-known tourist resort on the Veronese side of the upper Lake Garda. At its top, a 13th-century castle, a Scaliger Castle, stands on a cliff, whose ramparts fall directly onto the lake below.

The views are, of course, superb, as the opposite shore of Lake Garda is even steeper and in this northern segment the mountains rise on all sides. It is possible to visit the castle and the museum inside.

Narrow alleys lead up to the castle through a jumble of medieval stone buildings and small squares. Inevitably, a city this perfect image will have its share of temptations for tourists, making it a pleasant stopping place for strolling, dining and browsing the artists’ studios.

On the uphill side of the main road, where there is also a convenient place to park while visiting Malcesine, a revolving cable car takes you even higher to views and trails along the scenic ridge of Monte Baldo.

Weekend on Lake Garda: RIVA DEL GARDA

Riva del Garda-Weekend on Lake Garda

At the northern end of Lake Garda, Riva del Garda is located between the mountains and the water, a pleasant combination of ancient medieval streets and sunny parks and seaside promenades.

Hovering above the historic center on the precipitous Rocchetta is a Venetian watchtower, and below, in the porticoed square of the port, there is a massive clock tower.

To the east, on the lake shore, stands the ancient Rocca del Riva, yet another Scaligeri castle, built between the 12th and 15th centuries. Inside is the excellent Civic Museum, with prehistoric and later finds, well exhibited and interpreted.

The beach of nearby Torbole is best known as one of the best spots for windsurfing and kitesurfing due to the constant winds, which also make the northern part of Lake Garda a favorite for sailing. Lessons and rentals for both sports are available here.

 

 

 

Weekend on Lake Garda: Sport, nature and adventure.

On Lake Garda, sport, nature and adventure blend perfectly: with family or friends, as a couple or alone, finding the right offer is easy.

Lake Garda is an ideal place for water sports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and canoeing, but also for motorboat trips, fishing and swimming.

The wonderful landscape invites to have a bike trip and mountain tours, horse riding, tennis, climbing, paragliding and golf. Nature lovers can take long walks in the surrounding mountains. Some areas of Lake Garda are perfectly connected with lakeside walks and cycle paths.

A relaxing excursion leads from Desenzano to Peschiera on the cycle path and then leads to Lazise along the lakefront. The round trip from Desenzano to Lazise takes about 60 km!

On Monte Baldo you can find numerous cycling and downhill routes. The ski lift starts from Malcesine. The cross-country cycle path leads from Brenzone del Garda to Campo, then to the Boccino Church, Castello, and then back to Sommavilla and Assenza.

The birth of tourism on Lake Garda

Lake Garda: theater of historical battles and important influences cultural

Lake Garda, also called Benarco (dating back to Roman times, the original name of the body of water) following the settlement of the Romans between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. it is the protagonist of the influence of the Lombard culture.

The thirteenth century saw the affirmation of the Lords of Verona, the Scaligeri, who built numerous castles. Their place was then taken by the Visconti and the Republic of Venice, which came to govern the whole lake with the exception of Riva del Garda.

Lake Garda was the scene of several important battles and it was during the Second World War that Salò returned to be historically important when in October 1943 Mussolini proclaimed it the capital of the newly formed Social Republic of Salò.

Tourism on Lake Garda

Starting after the Second World War, the explosion of mass tourism has transformed Lake Garda into one of the main Italian tourist destinations, which receives over 24 million visitors a year. The place where memorable battles took place gave space to natural and water parks that offer fun for all ages. In addition to castles and historical monuments, attractions have been added to spend pleasant nights in this magical atmosphere, between the lights on the lake and the fireworks of summer nights.

Origins of tourism on Lake Garda

Tourism on Lake Garda dates back to Roman times, in particular from the early imperial age, an age in which magnificent villas were conceived on the shores of the lake as places dedicated to otium (an activity reserved for the ruling classes) and leisure.

A place of particular importance both in the imperial age and today is Sirmione, a privileged place for the presence of sulphurous springs which allows it to be used as a spa. Another indicator of elite tourism is certainly the construction of castles and noble villas during the Renaissance.

The beginning of “modern” tourism on Lake Garda dates back to the late nineteenth century in the north-western area of ​​the lake. Luigi Wimmer, an Italian engineer and patriot of German origin, as well as the mayor of Gardone Riviera, began the construction of a small hotel completed by his wife after her death. Over time, this hotel, with its various extensions, became one of the buildings that today constitutes the famous Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera.

The tourism on the Veronese shore of the lake, on the other hand, came much later, in the 1930s, when the current Garda road was built. With the increase in the influx of tourists, it was decided to build pedestrian walkways along the shores of the lake, for which it was necessary to demolish the houses that directly overlooked its waters.

Changes and diversity: tourism on Lake Garda

After the end of the Second World War, tourism on Lake Garda underwent a change over the years: classic tourism, characterized by medium / long stays, alternated with the so-called short tourism, characterized by stays of a few days or even in the space of a single day.

Thanks to this change, the number of tourists has expanded, some of whom often come from all parts of Europe, infact, it is possible to have the opportunity to meet, in addition to Italians, French, Swiss, Germans or Dutch.

The diversity lies as much in the origin of the tourists as in the services that are offered. One type of tourism that has seen strong growth has been health & wellness. The presence of thermal waters, such as those of Sirmione, has intrigued more and more people motivated by the various benefits that can be drawn from them.

In 1948 there was the opening of the first Treatment Center for Rhinogenic Deafness in Italy in the Società Terme e Grandi Alberghi in Sirmione.

Lake Garda and its surroundings constitute a context rich in multifaceted environments and modern infrastructures that allow you to enjoy both its beaches and its hinterland.

Another attraction for tourists are the many sports that can be practiced: from hiking in the mountains to fishing, from golf to rowing and much more.

The hinterland of the lake offers the possibility of mountain biking or trekking and long excursions in the mountains. Find various itineraries and information that may be useful to you at the link regarding trekking on Lake Garda.

Tourism on Lake Garda: Theme parks

Furthermore, again in the second half of the twentieth century, a real entertainment industry was formed along Lake Garda and in its immediate vicinity: numerous parks today collectively known as the Garda Parks.

The most important of these are:

Gardaland, a theme park with numerous tourist attractions, an accommodation facility and a spectacular aquarium,

Canevaworld, has two different parks, one themed on the world of cinema and a water park

Parco Natura Viva, a wildlife park that gives the opportunity to admire various endangered species that the park treats and then reinserts in the wild;

Sigurtà garden park, a 60 hectare green oasis along the Mincio river.

What more could you want from the relaxation area of ​​Campeggio delle Rose after an intense day of windsurfing or trekking?

To make you the protagonists of these experiences, the Campeggio delle Rose channels you into days of total relaxation among the beaches or comfortable salt water pools surrounded by greenery.

Directly overlooking the lake, the structure has a pier and a boat slide which are particularly helpful for practicing sports.

A salt water swimming pool and a comfortable and regenerating whirlpool is ideal to crown a day of well-being. The lake is, in fact, perfect especially for windsurfing, as well as for fishing and diving enthusiasts.

A break from the city surrounded by nature: spend your green holiday on Lake Garda

If you think that holiday means spending time surrounded by nature, relaxing and taking care of yourself, we have the perfect proposal for you: spend your green holiday on Lake Garda.

Last summer, Espresso Communication carried out a research which demonstrated that about 50% of Italians would like to spend their holiday far away from metropolis, as they prefer the contact with nature and sustainability. We totally agree with this idea and we think that a green holiday on Lake Garda is a great way to find youself and to connect yourself with everything around you. It’s a sort of way back to the origins which is also an opportunity to reduce our negative impact on the environment.

Here at Camping delle Rose, it isn’t difficult to find green areas where you can play sports or just relax: our camping is completely surrounded by nature. It’s possible to dive both into the saltwater swimming pool and the lake or to lay down on our beach, but you can also explore the lake with the stand up paddle boards or play sport in our equipped area.

Green holiday on Lake Garda: discover the territory by bike

Green holiday on Lake Garda

Your green holiday on Lake Garda can continue outside the camping. In fact, the lake is surrounded by many cycle paths which allow you to move without using the car. Last year, a project to make Lake Garda completely cycle started: the first stretch of Garda by Bike, connecting Limone del Garda with the province of Trento, was inaugurated on 14th July 2018.

Another advantage of moving by bike is the beautiful view, which is certainly better than the one you can enjoy through the window of your car. Renting a bike in this area is very easy and cheap and the possibility to avoid a travel by car, the parking and the traffic is a cure-all to the stress of the year. Moreover, don’t forget that biking is good for your health!

Green holiday on Lake Garda dedicated to aquatic sports

Green holiday on the Lake Garda - Windsurf

For sport and adrenaline lovers, a windsurf board or a sailing boat are the best ways to enjoy the view of the lake. In fact, both tourists and local inhabitants practice these activities and many other aquatic sports all the year round. Besides sailing, windsurf, kitesurf and rowing, it’s possible and highly suggested to practice activities outside water but just as much fascinating, such as paragliding and climbing.

Garda Green Card

Green holiday especially means low impact on the environment and Lake Garda offers endless possibilities to have fun, eat well and spend your holiday without weighing on Lake Garda ecosystem. Some towns offer the possibility to promote positive behaviours through the activation of a Garda Green Card which allows for the accumulation of points by using sustainable services, such as bike rental, local restaurants, electric vehicle charging stations, but also events and theme parks in the area. These points can be used to obtain discounts and advantages with the interesting possibility to check your real contribution to the respect of the environment.
