Apartments at the lakes of Northern Italy
Holiday apartments on the lakes of Northern Italy are usually located directly on one of the eight largest lakes and offer a stunning view of the water. The most common are individual vacation rentals with pool and garden, but you will also find apartments or villas on the shores of the lakes. Breathtaking are also the mountain ranges which enclose the apartments between themselves and the water or which form an unforgettable view from afar.Lake Garda
At the largest of the eight lakes, Lake Garda, the town of Malcesine is particularly attractive. At the foot of Monte Baldo you will find apartments or spacious holiday homes. The city has a particularly charming flair with many small cafés, restaurants and an antique castle in the city centre.
Holiday at the Upper Italian Lakes
Location and orientation
The Upper Italian Lakes are located in the south of the Alps in northern Italy. In addition to numerous small waters, the eight largest lakes are the main attractions. These include Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and Lake Orta. The majority of the shores are lined with Alpine peaks or hills, giving you an incomparable view. Nearby are lively and friendly towns such as Paschiera del Garda. When visiting the region it is not far to romantic cities like Verona.
The important philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche preceded his greatest work "Thus spoke Zarathustra" with a dedication to Lake Orta, after a special kiss was said to have taken place here.
Travelers and Activities
The Upper Italian Lakes offer a number of historical and interesting towns around their shores. The town of Lugano, for example, with its car-free historic city centre, is particularly recommendable. In the alleys and on the weekly markets visitors feel directly transported back some 100 years.Lake Garda for families
With several theme parks, water parks and opportunities for adventure tours, Lake Garda is ideal for families with children. The climbing park through birch and beech forests in San Zeno di Montagna or the Reptiland in Riva del Garda are some of the best places to have fun. But also quieter days at the beach or excursions to the surrounding cities are possible.
