For a relaxing May holiday on this, Italy’s biggest and most popular lake destination, you can’t go wrong in the beautiful setting and mild climate when staying in Gardone Riviera. Gardone is an elegant resort on the west coast of Lake Garda, where you can enjoy walks among the trees, watch the world go by in charming cafes, browse quaint shops and fascinating local history.
Gardone is proud host to two of Lake Garda’s main attractions; André Heller’s botanical gardens which are beautiful during May and the Vittoriale Degli Italiani museum where Gabriele D’Annunzio lived. Gabriele D’Annunzio’s house is the perfect place to go if you’re waiting for the skies to clear after a rainy spell, as is the St Nicolo church which has lots of interesting artwork.
A holiday in Gardone Riviera is perfect if your main intentions are to relax and soak in the natural beauty of the area. Before the heat of high summer arrives, a May holiday in Gardone is just the place to take your mind and body out of time, and truly unwind. For a more buzzing resort during May, you can visit Riva which hosts various regattas throughout the month and offers lots of sporting opportunity, or Bardolino which has a May wine festival.
