Lovely mini cruise

Inexpensive way to see the lake and its towns and villages but make sure you catch the right ferry. They go both ways and it can take a while to get back!

nice quick crossing and only E9 (euro's) each return, but if your over 65 show copies (photocopies will do ) of your passports you will get a discount ok

This is a lovely way to see Lake Garda. A short trip across to Limone or a longer one up to Riva. Break your journey at Torbole, another little bay worth visiting.The ferries are quite frequent and run on time.

The ferry is great we went from Malcesine to Desenzano in a fast boat calling in to some very pretty places on the lake, like Maderno,Portese,Salo, and Manerba.

I took the Malcesine ferry to Limone. The price was quite cheap about 9 euros. Fast trip over to Limone town on the other side of lake Garda.

Used the cabin cruiser ferry to go to Limoni across the lake for 9 Euros return, well worth a trip, great chance to get some photo's of Malcesine from the lake, the crossing takes about 25minutes and the ferries are very punctual.

10 minute walk from Cristallo hotel along the lake. 9 euro return to Limone which is well worth a visit if staying in Malcesine. Ferry runs every hour.

The ferries are so easy taking you to several different points around the lake at reasonable prices and at regular times.

9 euros to Limone, reductions for over 65s week days. Views best from upper deck but take a light wrap or cardigan as gets breezy.

We had a wonderful trip by ferry from Riva to Malcesine. We were lucky to get on the paddle ferry G Zanardelli, which was built in 1902.
