Travel Guide
Peschiera del Garda showing a marina, a city and a river or creek

Enjoy exciting water sports on this vast lake. Wander past interesting religious landmarks in this historic village.

Peschiera del Garda is a picturesque village on Lake Garda with an imposing fortress at its heart. It has important works of art and spectacular views of a divided river that flows through the area on its way to the lake. Admire imposing walls framing the river and learn about the former Roman presence.

Visit the religious complex at the iconic 16th-century Sanctuary of Madonna del Frassino. The site, where there was an alleged apparition of the Virgin Mary in 1510, attracts thousands of pilgrims annually. Marvel at the frescoes depicting scenes from the lives of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Anthony of Padua.

Capture photos of the fortified walls over the Mincio River. Visit the central plaza of Piazza Ferdinando di Savoia for its relaxed atmosphere and spacious setting. Gaze up at the Parish of St. Martin to appreciate its columns and a pediment.

Take the kids to the waterpark of Cavour, which includes slides and flumes that send kids flying into warm pools. Stroll through the picturesque park full of palms and floral displays. The park also has a man-made beach.

Visit the unusual Huckleberry Hound Beach, a pebble shoreline dedicated to dogs. Bring a bowl and blanket for your canine friend.

The climate in the Lake Garda region is pleasant, with hot summer days and a refreshing breeze. Take advantage of the sun and wind by surfing, sailing or waterskiing on the lake.

The commune is in Verona province in northern Italy. It is on the southern shoreline of Lake Garda in the western Veneto region. Arrive at Verona Villafranca Airport and take a bus for the 14-mile (22-kilometer) journey west to reach the village.

Peschiera del Garda emphasizes water, with its lakes, pools and lagoons beside charming churches.
