Salo is at its warmest during July, making this a great time to stay if you want a hot summer holiday on Lake Garda.
Salò is a great base for active holidays. Although the town can get quite hot in July, the Alto Garda Bresciano national park (which sits behind Salò) offers some brilliant hiking and mountain biking routes that are shaded from the sun and the Rimbalzello Adventure park has exciting rope courses under the shade of the trees’ canopy. Salo’s summer months are the best time to enjoy the water activities around the lake. Whether you want to paddle around the shore on a rowing boat or hire a motorboat and explore the lake further, activities on the water are perfect for keeping cool in the hot July sun.
A summer holiday in Salò doesn’t need to be enjoyed only at a fast pace: you can soak up the sun on the town’s long pebbled beach, play a round of golf on Colombaro’s nine hole course as well as shop and enjoy tasty treats in Salò’s cafes and gelaterias.
July evenings in Salò are bright and warm - dine al fresco in one of the great pizzerias and take an after dinner amble down Lake Garda’s longest lakeside promenade.
Salò is in close proximity to Gardone Riviera and a great thing to do here in July is head over in the daytime to have a look around the fantastic botanical gardens and book tickets for one of the events at the Vittoriale Theatre where a summer arts festival takes place in July. You don’t have to travel too far to enjoy the arts in Salò – it hosts its own music concerts in the Baden Powell Gardens and Piazza del Duomo.
If you’re looking to stay in Salò in July, check out our hotels with swimming pools as these are a welcome addition to a summer holiday in the hottest weather of the year! Salò’s charm is that it offers lots to do in a relaxed environment, but if you want somewhere busier you might want to visit in one of the larger towns like perennial favourites Desenzano, Garda or Riva.
