staying at Relais du lac hotel- transportation

Hi to everyone,

My family will be at this hotel for 4 nights , at the beggining of next month.

Its i Desenzano de Garda.

How can we manage with transportation in order to get out of the hotel and visit the towns around ? what are the possibilities we have?

In which towns we should visit, we like markets, small towns, with a nice view to the lake .

There are restaurants or shops, near by the hotel?

Thank you!!!

YOur hotel isn't "in" Desenzano. It is a good 4km from Desenzano itself - bit further to the ferry terminal and 5km from the train station at Desenzano.

The nearest bus stops are -

If you turn right out of the hotel along the via Brescia the bus stops are just before and after the roundabout (~ 300m)

Going towards Desenzano (out of Hotel and turn left) they are ~ 600m walk

This is on the LN026 bus route

Local bus that runs Verona - (Sirmione - Desenzano) - Brescia

Desenzano to Riva (west side of the lake)

others from Desenzano (includes other services to Salo and Sirmione for example)

There are street markets on various days around the lake.

www.gardalake.eu/place/markets-on-lake-garda/

Everybody has different favourites on the lake. Personally Salo, Lazise, Bardolino and Malcesine - but there are many other places.

Sirmione is nearby and is a popular place both to stay and for day trippers. You can just get the LN026 from near your hotel

If you want the more mountainous scenery/backdrop you can take the LN027 bus up the east side. Perhaps Limone or to Riva.

You could do a south east triangle. Take a ferry from Desenzano to Bardolino perhaps

Then walk to Lazise (if you like walking) or take the local 162 bus

…verona.it/atv_www/…62-64.pdf

Take the bus further onto Peschiera then the LN026 back towards your hotel.

Please Note the 162 actually stops at Peschiera station whereas the 26 goes from the end of the viale Stazione near the roundabout.

The buses generally do not run late and the west side service (LN027) isn't that frequent so if wishing to go up to the north end or round the lake by bus plan carefully
