Lake Garda: Italy’s Shimmering Jewel

We’ve always had a soft spot for the Italian Lakes (natural beauty, sleepy lakeside villages, watersports and gelato – what’s not to like?), so when holiday home rental agency Discover Lake Garda approached us to write travel web copy about one of Northern Italy’s most beloved holiday destinations, we were more than happy to oblige.

We wanted to provide potential holidaymakers with an informative overview of the popular Italian holiday spot, including a brief history of the region.
