- Hotel Ambra description
We love Hotel Ambra for its authenticity. This is a family-run place on one of Italy’s lesser known lakes, which means you’ll be away from the usual tourist trail and everything just feels more relaxed. There’s plenty to see and do in the area and the hotel’s location makes it easy to get out and explore. The town’s main piazza is close by so you can head here for some food or a drink. The lakefront location is great for watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour, and its right by the port where you can grab a boat to Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Europe with a charming pedestrianised town. We love having lunch here in one of the little lakefront trattorias.
The hotel’s décor is traditional and the food is very enjoyable. A big breakfast will set you up for the day with hot and cold options at the buffet. In the evenings, the menu is focused on local food so you’ll get to try out some Italian dishes. The best feature of the hotel is its staff – they’re incredibly friendly and welcoming. If you’re a keen walker, speak to them and get some ideas of what routes to do around the lake. We love the ones that take you past the famous Franciacorta wineries. It’s the perfect excuse to stop for a rest and drink some bubbles.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 15 mins by coach from Verona airport.
