Day trip from Venice to Lake Garda

by Jeany
(Scotland, United Kingdom)

We would like to take a day trip by train or bus from Venice to one of the towns on the lake. Any suggestions for the best/prettiest/most interesting, most picturesque place to visit for the day. We have never been to this part of Italy before and already have a planned train trip to Verona from Venice but would really like to visit the lake. We plan to visit in 2 weeks time. Help would be really appreciated.

Hi Jeany,

The train stops at Peschiera and Desenzano, both of which are nice towns at either corner of the south of the lake. However I would suggest taking a bus or ferry to Garda, Lazise or Salo would be well worth while. These a prettier towns with more history, more dramatic settings and lot of charm!

Have fun!
