    • Which resort to stay at Lake Garda?

      Lago di Garda Jan 5, 2017 at 1:52 AM

      Hello, what a great website. Hope someone can help with this. Me and my partner are hoping to go to Lake Garda in the summer but we are unsure as to which resort to base ourselves at. We are both 40 and although we are definitely beyond wanting a Club 18/30 type holiday we still want a nice lively resort that has a nice nightlife until fairly late at night. Last year we went to Sorrento and this was absolutely fantastic, lots of open-air restaurants, bars and even traditional music and singing in the streets at night, this was just perfect, so we wondered if any Lake Garda resort offered something similar? I was maybe thinking of Sirmione or Garda as a base as those would both be easier for us to get to, but I have no idea what the nightlife would be like. Hope someone can help? Thanks, Sarah.

    • Family bike rides

      by Hulinm Online Now Jul 26, 2015 at 2:09 AM

      Hello, we are traveling to lake Garda in August and would like to hire bikes. Does anyone know of any easy bike rides from Riva del Garda or Sirmione that would be suitable for young children (8 and 10)?

      Also, does anyone have any recommendations for outdoorsy activities suitable for children at or near either of these locations?

      We'll be staying in Sirmione for the second part of the holiday and we're hoping to use this as a base to explore places such as Venice and Verona- are the roads around Sirmione likely to be very congested?
      Many thanks!

    • verona to sirmione

      by AnnPeter Online Now Jul 6, 2013 at 11:15 PM

      We are arriving in Verona by train from Rome and need to get to Sirmione. I have read that you can get a train from Verona to Desenzano del Garde and then bus or taxi to Sirmione. My question is, is it very difficult to locate the train to Desenzano, does it leave from the main station that the Rome train comes into or from another station entirely? The hotel is quoting 80 euro for a pick up. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    • Backpacking family - train or car to head from Milan to Verona through Sirmione

      by Danielef Online Now May 16, 2013 at 7:24 PM

      Hi, everyone!

      We will spend a couple of days in Milan in laste June and then will head east to Verona and Padova, but intended to spend a few hours in Sirmione. I could rent a car or take the train (consider that we will have our backpacks with us at this time since we will be moving to a different city), but I am concerned with two possible problems associated with each option - lack of parking space or lack of lockers at the train station. Any suggestions or ideas?

    • Getting from Milan Malpensa to Sirmione if there is a train strike

      by eske56 Online Now Sep 10, 2011 at 6:04 PM

      Hi, I am scheduled to arrive at Milan Malpensa airport on Sunday morning, Sept. 18. I understand a train strike is scheduled from 9:00 p.m. Saturday Sept 17 until 9:00 p.m. Sunday Sept 18. We had planned to take a bus from the airport to the Milano Centrale train station, then the train to Desenzano station. Hadn't decided the best way to into Sirmione from there.

      So my questions, what are the options for getting into Sirmione from Desenzano train station. And second, what are the options to get there if in fact there is a train strike?
