Lazise

We are now debating between Lazise and Moniga. As a family who like to go for a stroll at night and eat in nice restaurants hopefully in a picturesque setting which resort would you recommend. Any advice much appreciated.

Hi, what time of year will you be visiting the lake? My choice would be Lazise for several reasons. If you are planning to travel around the lake by boat to see other towns then Lazise has a better boat service than Moniga. The bus service on the east side is better than on the west side of the lake, and the transfer time from Verona Airport to Lazise is a lot shorter than to Moniga.

Hi, I agree with everything Scozzese has said, I think Lazise would be the best option.

Completely biased as have spent the last 20years every year at Lazise - my kids have basically "grown up" on holiday there.

Lazise has some nice restaurants, some on the lake front. The whole centre is pedestrianised with little alleys with shops, ice-cream places and small bars and restaurants.

We like to eat at the "Castle" Al Castello. Restaurant within the old town fortress walls and always wander into Lazise itself (it is only 100m or so from the main Piazza) for Ice-cream and a stroll afterwards.

Thing is I always have a thing about the sun so being on the east side of the lake you can watch the sun go down so also gets more late afternoon/evening sun.

You will find a lot of nice towns around the lake but you should also take into account what else you may like to do when there and also, maybe more importantly, how do you get to/from your chosen town/village and if relying on public transport how easy is it.

From Lazise it is easy for instance to visit the theme park of Gardaland or the waterpark at Canevaworld.

Visit Verona

or even Venice (2hrs by regional train from Peschiera del Garda).

The 62-64 bus that starts in Verona stops at Peschiera (main line Intercity train station to Venice and Milan) Gardaland, Caneva Lazise and the whole east side of the lake to Riva

…verona.it/atv_www/…62-64.pdf

Verona - Lazise tariff is only a T5 €4.00

The maximum tariff T8 is only €5.80 and that would be to get from Verona to Riva.

You can buy tickets on the bus itself (80 cents surcharge). They can also be purchased from Magazine shops and Tobacconists

www.trenitalia.com for trains

Wherever you choose check the exact location of any hotel etc as some of the villages/towns addresses spread out quite a way you can find yourself well over a mile from the action.

Not sure if Moniga has a ferry service (certainly not in the winter anyway)

Thanks for your help and I think the choice has now been made ie Lazise. We are going early July and have had great difficulty sourcing a two bedroom apartment in Lazise and was amazed at how much more expensive such a rental is compared to other destinations in Europe. We do not really like to do too much whilst on holiday but rather relax and basically unwind and enjoy a leisurely stroll at night to and from a restaurant.

Once again I really appreciate your advice.

Could anyone recommend a two bedroom property ?

Thanks

We have only stayed in an appartment once in Lazise and we arranged that through www.interlingualazise.com.

You will have wonderful weather because we will be there from 11 July and we have never had it bad.

Can't personally recommend an apartment but you could look on www.holiday-rentals.co.uk this has a number of sister sites including the german site www.fewo-direkt.de so don't be surprised to get hits from German owners/agencies.

There were some new low rise apartment complexes built a few years ago in an area between Via Gardesana and Via Dosso up towards Via Zappo.

Mostly Apartments built around a central pool area. Never stayed there personally but friends have.

You are right about cost. Apartments tend to be basically furnished and you get far more for your money in Spain (quality/furnishings etc).

Hi, if you could give us an idea of your budget then we can give better hotel suggestions. One of the newest hotels in Lazise is the Corte Valier:

http://www.cortevalier.com/en/hotel

Or you could have a look at the hotel list at the top, left-hand side of this page.

By the way, when asking a new question it's usually better to start a new thread as your question could just become "lost" when tagged on to the end of a thread that's a year old.

Cheaper end but still has amenities is www.hotelgiuliettaromeo.com/sett.asp?id=1

It is near the main roundabout in Lazise so you will have to cross the road. No problem there is a pavement outside of the Hotel down to the roundabout and a zebra crossing across the road. The traffic is not mad. Short walk to the village centre
