The Italian Lake District is a popular spot for families and each of the five major lakes there all have very different characters. However, they have one feature in common: they all offer families the perfect combination of a peaceful holiday, picturesque landscapes, good food, and plenty of sunshine in the summer months.
In this post, we’ll take a brief look at the three main Italian lakes and what makes them so popular with families.
The largest of the Italian Lakes, Garda is bordered by three distinct regions – the Veneto, Lombardy and the Trentino. So, a trip to Lake Garda can give you views of rolling hills, dramatic mountains and unique plains – no wonder it’s a top choice for families!
For families who enjoy an active holiday, there are plenty of sporting opportunities here, too. There’s activities like hang gliding, mountain biking and wind surfing, as well as every other water sport you can think of – your kids certainly won’t be bored! Not to mention the natural thermal spas in the south and some picturesque golf courses, which are great to help parents unwind.
If you’re looking for a more relaxed family getaway and enjoy old-world charm, this is the lake to head to. The second largest of the Italian Lakes, Maggiore is peaceful and graceful. It straddles both Italy and Switzerland and you can see the highlights from both worlds.
The quaint little towns and villages are perfect for any family, as they are incredibly endearing and you’re sure to fall in love with them. If you have older children, select the vibrant Verbania, or for something quieter, Cannobio is the place to be.
So, for a luxurious family retreat, a trip to Lake Como is likely to come with a bit of glamour. Take a boat trip that the whole family will love, to admire all that the lake has to offer. You’ll see the dramatic Alps towering over the north and the stunning Bell Époque villas that sit on the water’s edge.
Or head to the stunning town of Bellagio, also known as the “pearl of the lake”, to see its delightful cobbled streets and picturesque Baroque gardens.
