Going out from Malcesine

We are staying in Malcesine in June and wondered where to visit for days out. Have thought about a day in Verona but would welcome ideas for other places to visit. Thanks

Hi, do you mean day trips away from the lake or do you also want ideas of other lake towns to visit?

Will you have a car or will you be relying on public transport?

Also, an idea of your interests would help us to point you in the right direction of where to visit.

Looking at day trips from malcesine - local transport preferred. Anything considered but in our mid 50's so bear that in mind ! Thanks

Hi, travelling to some of the other lake towns will keep you busy. The boat service in the north of the lake is quite frequent, and from Malcesine you are just a short boat ride from the other northern towns - Riva, Limone and Torbole. This is the timetable for June:

And the fares chart:

Travelling further south by boat is possible but the boats are less frequent and the journey times can be very long.

If you give us an idea of your interests - gardens, castles, churches, Roman history etc. - we can tell you which towns would be best to visit.

There's a bus service on the eastern side of the lake linking all the towns from Riva in the north to Peschiera in the south, and the bus also goes to Verona.

You could also take the special bus to Venice for a day trip. It only runs three days per week - Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays - and only in the summer months. It has to be booked ahead - by at least the day before:
