I m amazed by the information given on the Lake garda and area forums, infact so much i am bowled over and confused.
I have looked at the forum and take notes of places to visits. We do not like beach holidays and not able to sunbathe, we like food, wine and culture. We have a car for two weeks. I have a problem with climbing a lot steps and walking up and down mountains (arthritis) but walking is not a problem. We have been to a fair few places in italy but areas round Lake Garda are of interest on this time. We know Padua and Venice. My husband has booked a hotel in Sirmione but we can change this, however this would be ok for the wine regions to the east. I do like the idea of a 2 centre holiday so could any one recommend a place to stay as a base for one week to the west or east to get the maximum out of a 2 week trip.
