The Lake of Garda – Italy – MITS – Rest as a work of art
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy, with a length of about 50 km and a width of about 10 km at its widest point. The mountain chain of the Dolomites covers the lake from the North winds, which creates conditions for the microclimate. Due to this, along the lake, olive and lemon groves and vineyards, which, for example, can not be found on lake Como. In antiquity the lake was called “blessed.” The lake shore is very varied – low South shore, cliffs leading down into the water to the West and the mountain chain of Monte Baldo borders the lake from the East.
Lake Garda, especially its Northern part is a Paradise for practicing water sports. Surfers meet in Riva del Garda. Another popular sport is mountain Biking.

Along the shores are numerous ancient settlements in Desenzano preserved Roman Villa with mosaics. In Sirmione, located on a picturesque Peninsula in the very South of the lake, you can see giant ruins of a Roman Villa, where he lived the poet Catullus. With XV the XVIII century this region belonged to the Republic of Venice and the wealthy Venetians adorned the shores of lake Garda with its villas and beautiful gardens.
