Garda lake

2014-01-12 12.13.50

If you are planning to spend a vacation either in Venice or Milan, you shouldn’t miss the chance to visit the Garda lake, the largest italian lake.

During summer many tourists, included germans and dutch, come here to relax and have fun. The lake Garda is famous for water sports such as windsurfing.

The weather is incredibly mild, despite being in the northern italy, as matter of facts olive and lemon trees are not rare in there.

 

My suggestions:

-Stay at B&B ‘antiche mura’ at Puegnago, nice structure, warm and great hospitality, cheap prices.

-Visit Desenzano del Garda, Sirmione and Salò

– Eat local, during winter: italian ham, mushrooms and ‘polenta’

Italy off the beaten path: Pescara

2013-12-19 11.56.15 Italy is not only venezia, milano, firenze and roma!

They are indeed wonderful cities but the pure beauty of italy are the rest of the regions and cities, hidden and unknown by the mass tourists.

Pescara is one of the many examples, with wide sandy beaches, it is a resort town with mediterranean pinewood. Easy to reach by the city airport, in a lovely region, Abruzzo, where you can combine within a short distance both sea and montains. A vacation in Abruzzo offers a taste of the unspoiled Italy.

Abruzzo symbol is Gran Sasso, the highest mountain of the Apennine range. From the top of the Gran Sasso you have views of both the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian (Mediterranean) Seas.

Stay at Bed& Breakfast Villa Paladar, best B&B in town, according to tripadvisor. Nice rooms, great hospitality and breakfast.
