Destination: Lago di Garda Travel Companion: Wife Duration: 4 days Budget: 850$ pp (excl. Airfare)
By Bechara Daccache (Instagram): When you think of Italy, Rome, Florence or Venice come to mind. Today, I want to take you instead on one beautiful relaxing escape, Lake Garda. Lago di Garda is the largest lake in Italy, and is about half-way between Milan and Venice.

It is a popular holiday destination but not exactly from Lebanon, since it is not easy to reach. The lake is located at the bottom of the Dolomite mountains and is surrounded by small villages, natural parks, wineries and camping sites.
You can spend your day walking around towns like Garda, Sirmione, Lazise and Bardolino. Easier way to get there is by landing in Milano's airport. You can spend the night in Milan, and take the train to Garda. Oh and I don't recommend more than that in Milan. I didn't like it.
