Lake Garda is rich in everything a beautiful destination can offer-history, breathtaking views, remarkable hotels and nature. Covered in vines, olives and lemons this is one of the Italy’s most popular places to visit almost any time of the year. Here is a list of my five favourite spots:

So here are 5 reasons that you might consider visiting lake Garda in October.

1.Take advantage of the reduced prices on boat and ferry trips around the lake. As the season is moving towards quieting down you can get your boat trips and other attractions at a reduced price. Most places are still open so you will get a chance to fully enjoy lake Garda.

2.Avoid the crowds. Most families with children would have visited lake Garda already during the summer holidays and you will experience a lot more tranquil days in October. Being there during this time of the year you can enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee after a nice walk around the lake. If you don’t enjoy crowds and fully booked restaurants this is the time for you to visit.

5.Be spontaneous and enjoy a meal in an agriturismo. This is a unique way to explore the local lifestyle and meet people who live here all year round. Agriturismo is a local farm that has a visiting area and a restaurant where food produced on the land is served. It is a great way to explore the country side. If a place offers an agriturismo you will see a sign and you can simply drive into it and enjoy your stay. The beauty of this experience is that you get to enjoy a freshly prepared home-cooked meal.

Although popular during the summer months of June, July and August lake Garda has a lot to offer especially near the end of season in October. The closest airport to it is Verona.
