Usually, Lars and I don’t visit touristic places, but we made an exception for Lake Garda, simply because of its natural beauty. I love to photograph landscapes and especially waterscapes. And Lake Garda did not disappoint!

Lake Garda is the biggest lake in Italy. It’s located in the north and enjoys a mild climate. Some figures: more than 51km long, almost 17km wide, and a shore length of 158km. That is a lot of photographic opportunities!

I love landscapes such as these… We were there during the Easter break of 2011: very fine weather and not too many tourists yet.

One of the stops we had was in Sirmione. I clearly remember we were being chased away by a very unfriendly waitress.

We came back in April 2015 though when we unexpectedly spent 3 days at a camping site right next to the lake. But that will be for some other posts…

Feeling inspired yet?

The main source of income in this region is tourism – as you can imagine. Lake Garda is home to lots of picturesque towns and sports facilities.

So far, I have planned 3 posts for next week: one about my birthday in lockdown, one about France (all black and white pictures) and another one about the Czech Republic (also black and white). And maybe 1 or 2 Snaps. On the movie website, I will publish 2 reviews.


  1. We liked it so much we went back the following year! Our first base was Bardolino, which delivered on all levels, and was perfect for our 5 year old. Then Torbole in the north. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
