Lazise Guide

Lovely Lazise can be found on the south eastern shore of Lake Garda in the Province of Verona. Surrounded by hills and vineyards, this quaint town retains authentic Italian charm, uninfluenced by the commercialised theme parks nearby.

More or less traffic free, this pretty town is almost surrounded by medieval walls with a romantic harbour, charming piazzas and a long, wide promenade. You’ll find a colourful collection of shops, restaurants, gelaterias and cafes lining the narrow cobbled streets, piazzas and lakeside, which is lit up by pretty lampposts in the evenings. See our Restaurants and Bars pages for the best places to eat and drink.

For getting around, there is a local bus service to Verona as well as regular ferries and hydrofoils serving other lake towns. You can also use take the train from nearby Peschiera to visit towns like Milan, Verona and Venice.

History & Culture

With medieval architecture, old frescoes and lots of character, this small town is big in history and culture.

Numerous buildings remain from Lazise’s days as an important Venetian port including the surrounding walls and the old customs house. The Scaliegra castle here is one of the best preserved on Lake Garda and although it’s privately inhabited you can appreciate the architecture from outside. Some of the most fascinating historical attractions can be found under the water – a fleet of Venetian boats and warships were sunk here at the beginning of the 16th century - and other places to visit include the ancient church of San Zeno which has some brilliant artwork. Visit our Lazise History page for more on the past of the area.

For an authentic experience of local culture, visit the weekly market or attend the summer Bisse races, two big Lake Garda traditions.

Best time to visit Lazise

When is the best time to visit Lazise?

Being a tourist focused town, Lazise offers the best of both worlds – it has a brilliantly buzzing atmosphere during peak months, while on quieter months provides a sleepy lakeside escape.

The climate here is very Mediterranean-like, with hot summers, warm springs and autumns and mild winters. Thanks to its position on the sheltered southern end of Lake Garda, this is an ideal place to stay if you want to feel the best of the sunshine, particularly in early or late season when you can make the most of the sunny spells (while the winds of the northern resorts can make them feel quite cool).

The first month for mainstream summer holidays, May usually has warm temperatures up to 25°C. For information on climate and what to do in May click here.

September is one of the best months to visit, with lovely warm weather and a bit more space and time to enjoy the area after the summer crowds have subsided. Go here for more info on September.
