Hi, if you are only going for two nights and need to have easy transport options then Peschiera del Garda or Desenzano del Garda would be suitable. Both are at the south of the lake and have train stations on the Venice/Verona/Milan line. There's also a bus service from these towns to Verona and Brescia:
Getting to Malcesine would mean more travel time as it is quite far north.
Sirmione is on the bus route, but if you are travelling by train you would need to get to either Peschiera or Desenzano.
Thanks for your advice.
What do you think about those 2 options?
Arrive to Verona in the morning (leave baggage in the storage), do sightseeing and leave for 2 nights to one of the towns on L.Garda.
Staying in Verona for 2 nights and do a day trip to L.G. (Sirmion and towns near by)
I read your response with ideas on spending time on a day trip on L.G.
And another question would you recommend to use “City Sightseeing Verona - 2 Hop On - Hop Off Routes “ for our 1st day in Verona?
Staying for two night is just one full day, so basically you want a full day in Verona then a full day at Lake Garda. It's a lot of moving around for not much time in either place. Perhaps you should choose one or the other whichever appeals to you more. If I HAD to choose one of your options I would choose the first one.
As for the second question, I don't think the Hop-on-hop-off bus is necessary in Verona. The city is compact and all the main sites are within walking distance of each other. I would rather walk and explore it than see it all from a bus.
So, if we stay on Lake Garda for 2 nights, which town would you recomend to stay in?
I thank you very much.
I am making reservation for a place in Perschiera.
