Let's start our trip...

Which is the best town on Lake Garda?


Hi I'm Moira, born and grew up in Italy. Today I'll talk about one of my favorite resort in Northern Italy for holiday.

Sirmione

Best places to stay in lake garda


Personally I prefer 👉 to stay in Desenzano as a base for visiting the lake and going out in the evenings. There are various accommodations: apartment, starred hotel, and the downtown is full of bars, ice cream parlors, pizzerias, restaurants, events ...

⇨ If I want to sunbathe and swimming in the lake, I prefer to Manerba del Garda. I really like the view in this area: it was love at first sight. In fact I have already booked 2 weekends in July and August at this lakefront hotel. 👉 Manerba del Garda.

The beaches are pebbly, free or with the possibility to rent sunbeds and deckchairs, there is a kilometer walk along the coast and on the other side there are all the residences and campsites full of tourists.

👉 Self-catering lake Garda

Also nice to visit the "island of rabbits" (The island of San Biagio): an island far 200 meters from the coast can also be reached by walking through the stretch of water that separates it from the mainland. To do during the low tide.

What is the best neighborhood to stay at in Lake Garda?
Manerba

In the picture I was in the middle of Lake Garda just near the island of San Biagio. From here you can see a wonderful sunset.


Best town to stay in lake garda

  • Sirmione

Best place to stay in lake garda for couples

For those who prefer lively places, the most beautiful place in Garda is certainly Sirmione.
The village of Sirmione is as fascinating as it is crowded with tourists. One of the most famous and visited places of Garda thanks to the famous Aquaria Thermal SPA with its outdoor swimming pools heated in winter.

In the evening Sirmione lights up like a little Paris, there are numerous restaurants and bars for all tastes so if you want to stay in a lively center, even if small, I suggest you stay here. In summer it is very crowded especially on weekends. The season starts at Easter and lasts until the end of October.

Scaliger Castle, Sirmione


Tip: Choose an accommodation with parking included otherwise you will have to pay a parking space in this area and they are quite expensive.

If you are traveling in the summer, I suggest you to stay in this Holiday Village near Sirmione where the parking space is included in the price and you can enjoy a beautiful swimming pool.
Staying in the center of Sirmione is not comfortable, the area is a ztl (Limited traffic zone).
Better to stay just outside the Scaliger castle or in neighboring towns like Colombare and Lugana, it is less expensive. However, if you want to experience the magic of staying in the center of Sirmione, prefer this structure where you can park in the backyard, for free: ⇨ stay in Sirmione peninsula.

To know: There is a convenient shuttle bus service that from Colombare takes you directly in front of the Sirmione castle gate. The cost is € 1 each way per person (simple travel ticket can be purchased on the ground for € 1.00 or € 1.50 if you buy the ticket on board the bus).

What are the best cities to stay at in Lake Garda?

  • Salò

Salò is located in the south-west part of Lake Garda in the zone known as the Riviera dei Limoni: among the mountains, natural landscapes and tranquility.

The most touristic area of Salò, and the most characteristic, is enclosed in the historical center composed narrow streets, alleys and squares with ancient noble palaces, elegant shops, numerous restaurants and hotels. Surely, together with Riva del Garda, it is one of the most chic areas of the lake with its Art Nouveau buildings.

Salò, Garda lake


Beaches: In Salò you will find free beach equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas (if you want to pay the rental) and a part of the beach allowed for dogs.

Staying on Lake Garda can be quite expensive. If you want to save money, I advice you to look for an accommodation not just in front of the lake but in the neighboring countries. If you are looking for a place with reasonable prices to be on Lake Garda, with a nice terrace overlooking the lake and a garden overlooking the mountains, I suggest the House of one of the group members I manage on Facebook: Elsa Anselmini. She and her beautiful family are local experts who will help you by giving you tips on things to do and visit. Check availability 👉 Lake Garda holiday apartment.

  • Riva del Garda

Riva del Garda is surrounded by mountains, the climate here will be more variable and cool compared to the southern countries of the lake (Desenzano, Sirmione ...) so if you are looking for a location with a more tolerable climate in summer, head here.

lago di garda
Riva del Garda view from the lake

Riva del Garda is the area indicated for those looking for a wide beach and / or a lover of water sports. The city is cosmopolitan, there are many German tourists. The historic center is as characteristic as all the villages on Lake Garda. There are a good number of accommodation, facilities and is a good starting point to see the upper part of Lake Garda and the neighboring Trentino towns.

Riva del Garda

I recently stayed in Riva del Garda (early January), I stayed in a very comfortable hotel near the lake and the historic center (but not in the ztl area).
It's called 👉 Grand Hotel Liberty.

There are various rooms with affordable prices to be a Grand hotel. Included in the price there was the use of the internal SPA (swimming pools and saunas) and the abundant breakfast with a very inviting buffet: mini krapfen (delicious), cakes, speck jams and local cheeses. There are often discount offers for booking a room. Good location for a romantic weekend.

Hotel Liberty, Riva del Garda

  • Desenzano

Best area on Lake Garda for shopping


There are a few beaches in Desenzano and rather small. The most comfortable equipped with a bar and a sunbed and deck chair is located just outside the historic center and it is called "Desenzanino Sea side resort".
The local market takes place every Tuesday morning along the street overlooking the lake in the downtown core.
Along the coast there are also the most popular discos, pubs, clubs... for nightlife lovers.
I always stay around via Olimpia in one of the many apartments in this area because there are convenient parking lots (free in low season ). The accommodation along this area are near the beach like this B & B overlooking the lake. See the accommodations in the recommended area, in the map below ⇩:


Booking.com





  • Lazise and Peschiera

Garda where to sleep for theme parks


Lazise and Peschiera are the best places to stay to reach the most popular amusement park in this area from the best known Gardaland (located in Ronchi in the town of Castelnuovo del Garda) to Movieland (Lasize), Caneva world aquapark (located in Pacengo, fraction of Lazise). A few kilometers away from each other, as you can see in the map below.


Booking.com



They are 2 very pretty places. Villages full of narrow alleys, shops, restaurants, hotels. Both in Peschiera and Lasize you can find a corner where you can lie down to sunbathe but if you really want to suggest the widest and longest beach area, choose, without a doubt, Peschiera del Garda.
This apartment is 200 meters from the lakefront Mazzini ⇨ B & B in Peschiera .


  • Garda city


Garda is a village located on the east coast of the homonymous lake.
As you can see in the pictures, there is a nice old town also full of shops, bars, restaurants, hotels like all the villages of the lake as they are very touristy and visited.

garda piazza
Garda downtown


From the historical center a road runs along the lake where people, in some area without rocks, sunbathe. The photo below is not retouched, colors are just those of the lake that I photographed in one of my beloved walks.
If you want to stay in this area for a weekend, I recommend a modern B & B with parking included ⇨ best are to stay in Garda.

Well, my tips are finished. I guided you to discover the 6 most popular villages of Garda where to stay.
Whatever your choice, I'm sure you'll be fine because they are all wonderful places.

DRIVING IN ITALY: things to know!

Driving in Italy: rules, requirements, license, road signs... Important things to know before take a motorway in Italy: driving in Italy for tourists.

This article is written by Laura: an Italian girl who works in a motorway service area (on the A4 Milan - Venice).

italian motorway
DRIVING IN ITALY

One of the questions that often tourists ask her when they stop in the rest area is:
How to pay for the motorway in Italy?
Other questions are:
  • How does Italian motorway work? (Italy tolls roads cost.)
  • Which is the Best Way to Pay Autostrada Tolls?
And other useful tips.

Below you can read her suggestions...

Driving in italy which side?

Always Right as in America and all over Europe except in England and its colonies where you drive to the left.

Italy autostrada speed limit

On the highways: 130 kilometers per hour, down to 110 in case of bad weather.
On the main extra-urban roads: 110 kilometers per hour, down to 90 in case of bad weather
On secondary and local roads: 90 kilometers per hour
In the city the limit is 50 kilometers per hour; 70 in some sections expressly indicated.

Driving in Italy license and requirements


EU Member States license


You can drive with your driver's license.


Patent of non-EU countries


Foreigners with an extra EU license may travel in Italy for up to 1 year, BUT need and official translation to show with the license.
Translation can be made:

  1. By a professional translator and asserted with an oath made in front of a judicial or notary chancellor.
  2. Consulate with the signature of Consular Officers legalized in the Prefecture.

How does Italian motorway work?

Driving in Italy road signs

Foreign people can have difficulties to understand how to use Italian highway.
The mechanism is quite simple but payment can be complicated, or rather, can be tricky to figure out which tollbooth to choose.
Italian highway
When you enter in every Italian highway you'll find some tollbooths.
Follow the other cars that lined up in a lane.
Choose one that you want except the tollbooth indicated "Telepass".
When you are in front of a lowered bar, look to your left, find a red button... push it and take the ticket.

IMPORTANT: Keep the ticket until the exit! If you loose it you must pay the full amount from the origin to end of the highway. Quite expensive.
Now enjoy your trip... but remember... speed limit is 130 km/h.



take the motorway ticket


Head to your destination by driving smoothly.
When you decide to quit, you just take the first exit on the right.
Every highways exit has at least one tool where you can pay. You pay directly on the highway before leaving it.


Driving in Italy rules

Best Way to Pay Autostrada Tolls?



The only way guaranteed to be trouble-free is to pay cash. This is my tip.

For full information I tell you that:
There are different tollbooths that provide different payment methods (credit card, cash,Viacard, Telepass...).
Choose the payment system that you prefer and take the right tollbooth.
Every of them has a different sighboard, visible in the distance, indicating the payment system.
Let's see...

italian road signs
Italy road signs



BEST CHOISES n.1 or 2:


1 — CASH + OPERATOR (white sighboard) when you see a picture representing a hand and some coins it means that in this line you can pay by cash and there is an operator inside the tool.
I recommend this alternative for those without experience. Give the ticket, taken at the beginning of the highway route, to the clerk. The amount (the total of what you have to pay) will be displayed next the clerk window. Give the money to the operator and when the bar is raised, you are free ;)

TIP: Have some coins ready too. They appreciate not getting a €20 for a €0.80 toll.

2 — AUTOMATIC PAYMENT by Cash a picture with coins only (white sighboard): here you can pay by cash but the payment is automatic. There is not an operator.
Insert the ticket in the slot and your amount will be displayed. Than insert the money in the slot (one dedicated only for banknotes and one for coins only).
IMPORTANT: If you choose to pay by cash remember to bring with you enough coins and small banknotes (max 20 euros).

3 — TELEPASS (yellow sighboard): do not take it! It is a subscription using from Italian people that take the motorways almost every day in order to speed up the payment mechanism. Only those who have paid for this subscription and received a detector, to be placed on the windshield, can use this lane.

4 — CARTE (blue sighboard): here you can pay by credit cards. It accepts the principal cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners).

FIRST step: Insert the ticket in the machine where it is indicated and your amount will be displayed.
SECOND step: insert the credit cards where it is indicated.

Simplifying: put the ticket, put the credit card, take the card, go. It doesn't ask for a PIN number.

In CREDIT CARD line you can also pay by Viacard.
What is a Viacard? It is a pre-payed card of 25 or 50 euros that you can buy in the rest areas along the motorway. You can use it in the same way of credit cards. The amount will be deducted.
PAY ATTENTION: do not go into a closed lane! The open tollbooths have a green traffic light while those closed have a red traffic light.

What to do in case of payment problem?


In case of problems, visibile in the toll, there is a red button for to call an operator.
If nobody reply to you... don't worry, some minutes later the tollbooth opens automatically and the machine will issue a ticket indicated the information about your car and the amount that you must pay.
IMPORTANT: You have 15 days for pay the amount. You can also pay the motorway ticket on-line, in the post offices, by bank transfer or in a "Punto Blu".

What a Punto Blu is? It is an office of assistance for problems concerning the motorways. You can find them along the highway, in the cities or sometimes in the rest area.
Find "Blue Point" near you on the map, and click it to see the detail information. Here the map: Italy blue points motorway.

REST AREAS IN HIGHWAY


About every 25-30 km along the principal highways and a little bit more along the others there is a rest area with toilettes, a bar, a market and sometimes also a restaurant.
The averange prices are quite expensive, but you can find almost everything you are looking for.

How much does the italian highway cost?


You can get detailed driving directions, fairly realistic times, and estimated costs (fuel and tolls) for travel throughout Europe from: www.viamichelin.com


Another website with useful information for traveling on Italian motorways is this:


Best Way to Pay Autostrada Tolls


  1. The easiest way for most first timers is to just pay with euros
  2. Best and most easiest is to use a manned booth - so look for the toll sign above the booth showing the outstretched hand holding money. 
  3. Be very very careful not to go in a Telepass lane.
I hope these tips could be useful for you. When you will take a break in a rest area, look for a blond girl called Laura...


She works there (on A4 motorway), in the store at the cashier's desk, and probably she will be explaining to a foreign traveler how to pay the motorway ticket 😉

Where Ibiza on a budget? 

Go to Sant Antoni de Portmany, in this village there are a lot of hostel.


WHERE IS THE BEST AREA TO STAY IN IBIZA?

Spanish islands are my favourite holiday destination. Today I talks about Ibiza, I have stayed several times in Eivissa, especially when I was young... I am not so elderly now but...
At 20 years, like most guys, Spain and the Balearics in gereral are the main destinations for fun-filled holidays in a youth and dynamic environment.

WHERE TO STAY IN  IBIZA?

PLAYA D'EN BOSSA: For the "movida" lovers, fun and entertainment  with people from all over the world.

Playa d'en Bossa is one of the main tourist resorts of Ibiza. Here is the largest beach in Ibiza long about 3 km.
There are lots of hotels, shops, clubs, restaurants that offer every service for tourists.
The beach is full of kids of all nationalities: music and high possibility to socialise.

Playa d'en bossa beach

Ibiza in the summer: If you love to stay surrounded by many people, clubs, music, restaurants with outdoor tables, if you love the nightlife, if you want to stay in the center of social life  you must necessarily stay between Playa d'en Bossa and Ibiza city. July and August are monthsvery crowded of tourists.
Nightlife, disco tour? This is the best area to stay in Ibiza.
Here my tips: the structures below can be booked on Booking.com: the price is per room and not per person. Often you can pay upon arrival.
If you are planning to go to Ibiza between july and august, book early. Trust me. Cancellation is free on Booking.

BEST PLACES TO STAY : IBIZA TOWN Marina

 Ibiza for nightlife and discos

Walking towards the center you will see the ancient city called Dalt Vila with its cathedral on the top.
If you love panoramic views you will like it also for the medieval environment.
Dalt Vila is in  enclosed by walls where there are numerous museums, the Cathedral as well as numerous restaurants and shops. In the summer evening it is almost impossible to walk among the tables of restaurants full of people tasting the famous Spanish Tapas.

Eivissa
Ibiza town


To stay in Ibiza city: good solution to walk to Playa d'en Bossa and the city center.
The Ibiza clubs and its nightlife has no comparison across Europe. In the summer the best international DJs work in these crowded and expensive nightclubs.
The most famous discos of Ibiza are El Divino, Pacha and Amnesia. These places host tourists from all over Europe.
The nightclubs do not open before midnight but the "real night" starts around 2:00 am
BOOKING HOTEL IBIZA TOWN 


WHERE TO STAY IN IBIZA: FIGUERETES

Figueretes is a small, well-known village by gays in which there are clubs and exclusive hotels for the homosexual world. Do not miss the beautiful promenade that runs along this tourist destination.
Figueretes has a small but nice beach and nearby there are: Es Cavallet and Ses Salines, beaches frequented by nudists.
NICE HOTEL PLAYA D'EN BOSSA



WHERE TO STAY IN IBIZA: SANT ANTONI DE PORTMANY

 Ibiza for young people, nightlife, and fun

It was my first trip in Ibiza, with a group of friends.
We came to San Antonio in a barracks full of youth (drunk at night) overlooking the street.... I slept 10 hours in 7 nights. 😩
Booking.com
movida ibiza
Sunset in san antonio


San Antonio is one of the cheaper areas for accommodation and obviously there is a reason...
I came back home devastated. It was the week between July and August:  heat weather, young people (mostly English) screaming and drunk, the sea of ​​San Antonio turned into a pisser. People sleeping on the sand in a comatose state surrounded by empty beer bottles.
Surely there are more peaceful structures but not in the downtown.
San Antonio has its own beauty but in the peak of the summer season (July, August), at least if you are not looking for pure nightlife, it is better to stay away from it and look for more inviting waters and beaches.
You can come here to see the Puesta del Sol (sunset) in fact this event attracts an infinity of tourists who crowd the bars overlooking the sea watching the sun that plunges into the ocean.
One of the most famous place is the Café del Mar but there are several bars next to each other to sit down and enjoy the show.
CHEAP HOTEL SAN ANTONI


WHERE TO STAY IN IBIZA: CALA TARIDA

A beautiful beach, in a quiet area

I stayed in Cala Tarida some year ago, at the end of May.
This small resort has a white sand beach with a basin suitable for children, as well as for adults. On the beach you can rent boats and take a drink in one of the several bars.
You can get to the beach walking down a stair with lots of steps, so it is NOT suitable for people with mobility difficulties.
BEST HOTEL CALA TARIDA

Cala Tarida beach
This is a good solution for those looking for a quiet place. In the evening there are not many entertainments but it is close to the main tourist towns like Sant Antoni de Portmany easily reached by bus.


WHERE TO STAY IN IBIZA: ES CANAR

For people looking for a quiet area with beautiful beaches

Es Canar is a quiet place but not far from bars, restaurants, pubs and shops.
Es Canar is famous for the hippy market on Wednesday from 9.00am to 7.00pm in Punta Arabi.
In this street market you can find clothes, objects and leather leather, jewelry, paintings and a self-service restaurant.

In Es Canar there is a beautiful sandy beach appreciated by families and not far away there is the quiet and small Cala Nova.

HOTEL ES CANAR close to beach


IBIZA WHERE TO GO: SANTA EULARIA DES RIU

If you like holiday villages, peaceful but also restaurants, shops, walks.

Santa Eularia is another popular destination in Ibiza and for many people the best place to stay.
Santa Eularia is the third largest town in Ibizia after the capital city and San Antonio.


Surrounded by the long beach and promenade, there are numerous shops, restaurants, hotels and bars.
The main street of the village, lined by numerous trees, is ideal for evening walks.

HOTEL EULARIA BEST VIEW



ibiza relax


PERSONAL TIPS:
I have visitad Ibiza many times and I prefer to stay between Ibiza Town and playa d'en Bossa because I love walking through the shops.
Then, I usually rent a car in the airport that allows me to move and change beach every day (I recommend you to do it).


To Know:
The north is the wildest part of Ibiza, far from tourism (compared to the south) very green. Choose it only if you plan to travel by car or you are looking for a relax holiday.
I conclude the article dedicated to "where to stay in Ibiza" and  I hope to help you in your choice. If so, share the article. Thank you.
