Lake Garda is a stunning mountain lake in northern Italy, straddling the provinces of Verona, Brescia and Trentino, providing it’s visitors with that typical Italian feel with a few mountains thrown in too.
An ideal location for a destination wedding, Lake Garda has a number of small towns around it’s shores, offering everything from luxury villas to ancient castles, many of which are licensed for civil ceremonies.
Although Lake Garda is sometimes seen as a budget option to Lake Como, the two have very different vibes to them. Yes, Lake Como has George Clooney as one of it’s most famous residents, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find Italian elegance and extravagance in Lake Garda too, if that’s the feel you’re going for. But Lake Garda also offers something for those with a sense of adventure, with an abundance of water sports, climbing and hiking activities for the days surrounding the wedding. It’s also pretty easy to reach from overseas. The closest airport is Verona, which is served by a number of low cost airlines from across Europe.
At the northern end of Lake Garda, you’ve got Malcesine with it’s iconic castle and also Riva Del Garda with it’s grand piazzas and waterfront.
Towards the southern of end of the lake, you have the picturesque town of Sirmione and just off the western shore near Gardone, you’ll find the magnificent Isola del Garda (Garda Island) with one of the most stunning and luxurious villas in the region.
