Fantastic views offered in Desenzano from
the man made lagoon
to the hillside where a Church sits.
|The drive from Milan to Lake Garda was
approximately 145km on a pleasant Saturday morning. We noted the town of
nestled on the hillside beside the motorway offering quite a spectacular
sight but our destination is the town of Desenzano on Lake Garda.
speed limits posted at 110 kmh, most cars were travelling at 135 kmh with
a couple doing 150 kmh. I guess the Italians didn’t respect these rules
very much – noting that the Italians do make fast luxurious cars like
Ferari, Lamborghini and Maserati to help break them. Road courtesy, seen
in its abundance in Germany somewhat dissapears here is hardly “hooligan”.
It was a very enjoyable drive indeed.
Desenzano, is a very pretty little Italian
holiday town on Lake Garda. It seemed quite obvious to me, with the many
expensive yatches that are moored in the harbour that a sizable proportion
of Desenzano are not locals, but come from larger cities around Italy.
Unlike Germany, Italy enjoys a large seaward coastline. Beyond watersports,
the Lake Garda region also has Gardaland and a Movie World to offer guests
holidaying in the region. In Desenzano, views are in its abundance of the
lakes, water sports, locals fishing and a really beautifully manicured town.
