My husband and I really enjoyed this walk. The views are absolutely stunning. I would advise going in the morning before it gets too hot. Allow extra time for stopping and taking lots of photos, wear some comfy shoes, take some water and enjoy!

A must walk/ride path in Garda. Classic route that quarantines beautiful views on Garda lake. Don’t hesitate and spend unforgettable afternoon admiring views.

We decided to do the trek up the mountains, what lovely views, lovely walk and even a beer stop on the way. Only thing is dodging the cyclists, there are a lot of, but definitely recommend doing

It was really worth getting up early at 6.30am to beat the intense summer heat and crowds to walk up along this old road hugging the cliff of Lake Garda. Superb panoramic views really worth the effort. Interesting history of construction and war information to...More
