Hotels in Bardolino
Bardolino is a charming resort town located on the eastern shore of Lake Garda in northern Italy. Throughout its history it has been a destination for people looking for a relaxing break from everyday life. As you stare out over the magnificent Garda, with a glass of Bardolino red wine in your hand, it's not hard to see why.
Lake Garda is considered one of the finest among the famous lakes of northern Italy. Pick up some cured meats and local cheese, rent a speedboat from Garda Charter and explore the lake in your own time. If you want a more exhilarating trip round the water, they also have jet skis and dinghies for hire.
There's a leisurely time to be had on dry land as well. A Lakeside Path connects all of the picturesque towns on Garda's south-eastern side and it is perfect for an afternoon stroll. From Bardolino hotels, at a leisurely pace you can reach the town of Lazise in about an hour. Cisano, a lovely hamlet about halfway between the two, is a perfect place to stop off en route for some light refreshments.
If the kids are getting restless, not too far up the road from Bardolino is one of Europe's biggest theme parks. Gardaland, a water-based theme park, has fun for all the family. The braver among you can experience the pure adrenaline that is Blue Tornado, a 109-foot tall rollercoaster.
