The fascinating and unique city of Venice also has a wealth of events, with a huge annual carnival which makes the city nearly burst at the seams!
Lake Garda itself also offers many local festivals, often centred around food and wine, which can be a lot of fun and teach you a lot about local ways. There are also lots of sporting events too, for all you sporty people out there!
So...Ready for the Lake Garda Entertainment to be revealed?
The Verona area is a superbly well preserved 2000 year old Roman amphitheatre which hosts the famous Verona opera.
The summer opera season here runs from July to September and provide a spectacle for up to 16,000 people in the
original arena. If you rent a cheaper seat on the terrace, rather than the more expensive cushioned stalls, make sure
that you bring something soft to sit on! This world famous venue gets very busy so if you want to go there it would
definitely be a good idea to book ahead. Surely one of the most impressive Lake Garda entertainment ideas.
The Venice Carnival takes place over 10 to 12 days, finishing on the Tuesday before Ash wednesday every year. The carnival
includes many events such as the famous Venice balls, street performers, fashion shows, processions, concerts and a whole lot
more! Nearly half a million people come to the city at this time so if you don't like it too packed then it's probably best
avoided. Oh and by the way St. Marks square can get pretty packed with pigeons too! The Venice Film Festival is also held every year during the last week in August.
Milan is a large city and as such has many events during the year. As the fashion capital of Europe many people come to
the various fashion shows which take place here. If you want to find out the latest fashions you really can not be in a
better place than Milan. The Italians are also football mad and you will find 2 of Italys' finest here, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
Many great football fixtures have been held inside the 85,000 capacity "San Siro" stadium.
