If you want to stay in Salo in one of Lake Garda’s quieter months, but still enjoy the sunshine, visit in September. A proper Italian town, Salò is a great place to stay in September as it maintains a bustling atmosphere when some of the more tourist-focussed Lake Garda resorts can become quiet at the end of the main summer season.
Salo is a fantastic place to stay whether the main focus of your holiday is activities, sightseeing or relaxing. You can do water and land based activities in Salò ranging from diving and canoeing on the lake to hiking and cycling in the national park. For sightseeing, the Cathedral, churches and palazzo’s are must visits and Salò is well placed for day trips to nearby Gardone Riviera. If your ideal holidays run at a slower pace, you can relax by the lake on a pebbled beach, wander down the longest promenade on the lake and browse every kind of shop and boutique.
September is an excellent time to stay in Salò, when the summer heat and crowds have lost their intensity but warm temperatures and animated charm remain. Other bustling Italian towns on the lake include Riva and Desenzano. For a quieter resort at this time of year, have a look at nearby Gardone Riviera.
