We intend to visit Lake Garda from September 23 till September 26 (3 nights). Looking for more or less affordable (and nice) accommodation - with at least breakfast - in or around Desenzano.
Dear Virtual Tourist member,
I am an American writer and I’m tracing my father’s World War II route from Naples to Bolzano. In the summer of 1945, my father’s headquarters company was stationed at the Hotel Splendide in Desenzano. He became friends with the hotel’s barber and the barber’s two children. I have been trying for several years to identify the barber and locate these “children”. The hotel has not been any help. I am writing to ask if there are any VT members who have elderly relatives in the area who may remember the name of the barber at the Hotel Splendide in the 1940s. My wife and I will visit Desenzano this year to complete the final leg of the journey; what is the best way to travel from Desenzano to Verona to Vicenza to Cornuda to Feltre?
I would like to know which is the best way to travel back to my hotel in Desenzano from Gardaland. Time will be approx 10pm or maybe a bit later. Taxi? Public transport? Is there a free shuttle to Desenzano?
Will be visiting the area next week.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Can anyone tell me how much a taxi from Brescia airport to Desenzano del Garda would cost and how long this journey would be.
Could anyone tell me where exactly in Desenzano is the public beach located? (What street etc.). Thanks!
I will be staying in Limone while on holiday. Looking at the map of Lake Garda am I right in thinking that Desenzano is the most convenient/direct resort to catch a train to Venice. Do you know how long it will take from this resort and roughly how much the ticket is? Do they run frequently. I would really appreciate any help you could give me on this subject.
We are travelling to Verona Airport (Valerio Catullo) and wonder what the best way of transferring to Desenzano del Garda. I have been informed that a taxi would cost 70 euros for a single trip, so we want to do it by local transport. Bus or train, or both.
Any suggestions please?
I am going to be in Desenzaro in May and would like to visit the Ferrari complex at Maranello. How easy is it to get to Maranello/Modena by train, what might it cost and how long will it take. If train is not practical what might be another way of getting there.
I would also be interested to know if there are any festivals in the Lake Garda area in May.
What is the best and most economical way of travelling from Verona Airport to Desenzano del Garde? I have been quoted 70 eur for a one way taxi for 2 people which I think is far too high. I would rather use public transport than pay this sort of one way charge. Can any of you travellers to Desenzano help me? My travel dates are for 11-22 July 2006
hi, i am starting to plan a spring visit to Desenzano.
the most important for me in hotel is a safe central location. near to public transportation. preferebly with a lake view.
the Tripoli and VITTORIO seem good. how about the Piroscafo?
considering i have some knee problems what about City an Alessi ? do they require steep uphill walking ?
thank you. shula
Do you know where I could find a trekking map (on line) of Monte Baldo or Monte Pasubio ? Or any other ideas / suggestions for a two days hiking not to far from Desenzano / Garda Lake ? More important than distance is easiness to reach the trekking starting point.
Hi everybody, I want to take my Mom to Desenzano for a few days. She is 77 yrs old, quite active, and has walked everywhere all her life. She has recently developed a hip problem, but it only causes her distress on hills or stairs (not that she will admit to, that is). Is Desenzano the place to go, keeping in mind I would like to tour Lake Garda by ferry, stopping at little places along the way? Appreciate your time, thank you. Diane
