Morning: Old Town Exploration

Dawn sees the Scaliger Castle bask in a soft glow, a sentinel from the 14th century. Navigate the ancient lanes of Lazise’s old town, with its stone-framed pathways and homes adorned with colorful blossoms.

If you’re driving into Lazise, it’s good to remember the historical center is a pedestrians’ paradise. Ample parking facilities lie on the town’s outskirts. As you stroll through Lazise, the town’s medieval roots are unmistakable. The well-preserved walls and the Castello Scaligero recount tales of the past. Those interested in uncovering more of the region’s history will find my deep dive into Sirmione illuminating.

Lunch: Relish the Local Flavors

Positioned right by the vast expanse of Lago di Garda, Lazise offers an array of culinary experiences. Sample locally caught fish, enjoy regional wines, and let the lakeside ambiance add flavor to your meal.

For a touch of rejuvenation, Lazise doesn’t disappoint. The renowned Villa dei Cedri thermal park, set within an 18th-century villa, promises relaxation. If you’re looking for more serene hideaways by Lago di Garda, my experience at Unwinding at Camping Wien is a must-read.

I always go to on of my favorite restaurants there, it’s called Classique. Last year, I found out they even have a hotel! Which is a secluded and unknown secret gem! Look at the pictures to see what I mean. Curious? Make sure to check out their current price and special offers. I’ve payed around 160 euros per night and I don’t say this often, but it was worth every penny!

Afternoon: Gelato Break and Harbor Time

Italian afternoons are synonymous with gelato. Drop by Gelateria al Castello and with a scoop (or two) in hand, stroll down to the harbor. Witness playful ducks and distant sailboats creating ripples on the horizon.

Evening: Serenity at Villa dei Cedri Thermal Park

Just a stone’s throw from Lazise lies the Villa dei Cedri Thermal Park. As the day turns dusky, immerse yourself in these ancient thermal pools, an ode to nature’s luxury.
