There are many artistic and cultural points of interest that tourists can visit in Lake Garda resorts.
Not to mention important cities such as Verona, Brescia, Mantua, Milan and Venice, just to name a few.
Desenzano del Garda is now a bustling town located at the southwest end of Lake Garda.
At the center of a wide gulf bordered on the west by the rise of Monte Corno and on the east by the Sirmione peninsula, it is in a privileged geographical position from which one can admire the lake at its greatest extent.
From Desenzano, many other tourist locations in northern Italy can be reached.
Sirmione is situated on a peninsula that stretches for about 4 km on Lake Garda in the province of Brescia and offers incredible views.
Sirmione is famous for the unique charm exerted by its historic center, with its narrow and irregular alleys, the Thermal Baths of Catullus, the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore and San Pietro in Mavino, and the ruins of the Roman villa of the poet Catullus, known as La Grotta di Catullo.
The Vittoriale degli Italiani is the villa-museum where Gabriele D’Annunzio spent the last years of his life and donated to the Italian people.
The Vittoriale houses thousands of objects, including statues, ceramics, glassware, carpets and memorabilia that recall the heroic moments of his life.
All these heirlooms are collected in rooms to which the poet assigned symbolic names.
Known for being the site of Romeo and Juliet’s tragedy, Verona has a history of about 2,000 years, developing gradually and uninterruptedly by integrating high-quality artistic elements from the different periods that have succeeded one another.
These include in particular the rule of the Della Scala family between the 13th and 16th centuries, and the rule of the Republic of Venice between the early 15th century and the late 18th century.
Verona has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site
A world-famous city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, it lies on more than 100 small islands within a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea.
In this city there are no streets but canals, including the Grand Canal, lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces.
On the central square, St. Mark’s Square, stand St. Mark’s Basilica, embellished with Byzantine mosaics, and St. Mark’s bell tower.
The capital of fashion and design, it is a metropolis in northern Italy and the capital of Lombardy.
Home to the Italian Stock Exchange, it is also a financial hub famous for exclusive restaurants and stores.
The Gothic-style cathedral and the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which houses Leonardo da Vinci’s fresco “The Last Supper,” testify to the city’s artistic and cultural heritage.
