Buon Giorno,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it´s been almost 5 weeeks since we are back from Lake Garda and I am finally coming around to write my last travel post in terms of this vacation. Read my Food Guide here and my Verona Travel Diary here. 

We checked-in in the afternoon and only hang out by the pool until it was time for dinner. After we dressed up we went down to the Peschiera city centre and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.

But you don´t have to be by the pool every day, there are plenty of acitivites you can do around the lake. I have rounded-up some activities we already did or planning for the next time.

What to do:

 – visit the surrounding cities (we already visited Garda, Lazise, Sirmione, Bardolino, Peschiera del Garda, Verona, Milan,

 – go to the market (there are local markets every day, our favorite one is on Thursday in Barodlino but we also visited the market in Garda on Friday and Peschiera del Garda on Monday)

 – play mini golf (we love to go play after dinner, also it isn´t as hot anymore)

 – shop ´till you drop (Affi has a huge shopping centre with different Italian stores, also shopping in Verona is great and every little city of course has its own shops)

 – bath in the Lake (there are places which don´t belong to the hotels everywhere)

 – go wine tasting (I always wanted to do 

 – visit the Gardaland theme park (I have been years ago and it has evolved so much, there are a ton of new rides so whether you are a rollercoaster junkie or you are visiting with your toddler there is lots of fun for everyone)

 – go on a ferry ride to another city

 – go to a dinner show (there are two dinner shows available – a Rock´n Roll dinner show and a Medieval Times dinner show)

 – rent a boat (only possible if you have a boat license, the lake is huge and the cities can also all be visited by boat so if you are fed up of riding your car give it a try)

 – go parasailing (I have done this years ago and for 50 Euro I would say it is totally affordable and you have the greatest view of the lake you will ever get, awesome experience)

 

This are some of my top recommendations if you want to do a little more than lying by the pool.

If you want to know more what to do feel free to mail me. 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Good morning friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am starting the new week with a vacation post from Lake Garda. I have taken so many different swimsuits with me but only came around wearing three of them cause some days it was just to hot to sit outside at the pool or the lake. I really didn´t want to get sunburned at all.

Since it is going to be the end of summer soon and vacation time is in its high some of my original pieces aren´t available anymore but I have linked the closest pieces I could find under every look.

Swimsuit Round-Up

I personally love to add all kinds of accessories to my swimsuits. A plain swimsuit can be totally fine but bringing it to the next level by adding trendy pieces like colorful sarongs, dramatic statement sunglasses and woven sunhats makes so much more fun. It may not be super parctical for going into the water but let´s be honest, the majority is not going to jump into the pool all the time or dive her way through.

Another thing I highly recommend is wearing a sarong or a kimono to the beach bar. Although it is a beach bar the people who come after you don´t want to seat on a chair were your sweaty butt has been a minute before. I wouln´t want it and I am sure most people wouldn´t too. For me this just belongs to etiquette.

Hoping your week starts well. I am super tired today and have to pick up several pieces in our garden after a huge storm hit us last night. Haven´t seen so many lightnings in a long time. To be honest it was a little frightening.

My Lake Garda Travel Diary is coming to the blog this week but if you are on the search for different travel content check out my travel tab here and to find out what we did in Verona or what we ate all week. Fall posts are hitting the blog very soon cause I have to honestly admit I am in kind of a summer rut. I don´t want to dress for the heat anymore and also I don´t want it to be hot anymore.

Happy Monday you guys,

can you remember my amazon fashion try-on haul from a few weeks ago, were I also introduced you to this beautiful flowy maxi summer dress that is available in 18 different colors and under 30 Euro ??

I have been dying to wear this dress and I finally have on our first evening in Peschiera del Garda. It is the most flowy and airy dress (which was much needed with these high temperatures) and the perfect outfit to style for dinner. I think you could also easily dress it down by wearing a pair of gorgeous sandals and a denim jacket. Since it was so hot I haven´t paired that much with the summer maxi dress. Only a pair of yellow wedges and a super fun mexican pinata inspired clutch I got from Asos. 

Probably one of my favorite summer dresses ever with the high neck and the waist band. It has lining underneath and sheer from the knees downwards.

The dress only is available in one size. I usually wear a medium in dresses and it fit fine loose for me. So if you are wearing size large I think it would also be a great fit.

As always thanks for stopping by and have a great start into the week.

P.S. It is international lipstick day today so in honor of that I am sharing my favorite orange lip color shades in the afternoon. Stay tuned and check back.

Good morning y´all,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

today´s  topic is eating and drinking at Lake Garda and which places we tried and loved. I have already shared our day in Verona here and I am sharing a summary of our whole stay next week. But you can always have a look at my travel tab too if you are interested in other places we have been to.

Lake Garda is surrounded by several small cities we have mostly visited during our last stays so we know already where to go to lunch and dinner and what we like and what not. So for today´s post I am sharing some of our favorites and also recently discovered ones. This was the first time we haven´t had breakfast at our accommodation so we also ate breakfast someplace else everyday.

I am gonna split it up by cities so you can have a look at which one you are close or which one you want to visit.

Peschiera del Garda:

Breakfast:

3 Sessanta

Opening hours: 6:30 am to 23 pm

Best breakfast spot we could find. We had the pancakes with Nutella and the bacon and eggs. Both tasted delicious and we ate every last crumb. They also have fresh pressed juice and avocado toast. Definitely coming back next time. Also how gorgeous are the big dog statues. Adorable.

 

Porto

Opening hours: 8 am to 11 pm

We had the brioche (filled croissants)/orange juice/coffee and the scrambled eggs, bacon/orange juice/coffee menu.

 

Lunch / Dinner:

Restaurant Bella Vista

Opening hours: 12 am to 3 pm / 6 pm to 11 pm

I had the tuna steak with spinach as a side and Florian had the Gnocchi. Both dishes tasted absuletly delicious. We had been last year too and it was great too. Worth a visit.

Bardolino:

Breakfast:

Lido Mirabello Beach

Opening hours: 9 am to 9 pm

We had a piece of apple cake and a ham and cheese toast. They don´t offer real breakfast so this would be everything you can get but the view is amazing.

Lunch / Dinner:

Trattoria Bardo

Opening hours:

10 am to 12 pm

I had the tagliatelle with chanterelles and Florian had a pizza. Both was delicious and the house wine (white) tastes great too.

Sportsmann-Ceola (between Garda and Bardolino on the promenade):

Lunch / Dinner:

Torre al Casello

Opening hours: 9 am to 11:30 pm

We love to come here immediately after we have arrived at the Lake. It is the perfect first meal with the best view. The prices are almost cheap and the service and food is great.

Lazise:

Lunch / Dinner:

Restaurante Classique

Opening hours: 8 am to 12 pm

One of our favorite spots we always have dinner. I had the sphaghetti bolognese and Florian the tagliatelle with chanterelles. For desert I ordered my absolute favorite and it didn´t disappoint – crema catalana. So delicious. You have to try it. Florian took the surprise desert and it came with the best and most flavourful pistacchio ice cream I have ever tasted.

Garda:

Lunch / Dinner:

Cafe Roma

Opening hours: 7 am to 12 pm

We have been here last year and had great memories but this year the food wasn´t that good. I had the tuna salad and the lettuce was very bitter and hard at times. Florian had the spaghetti and said they were okay. Overall you have a great view and the staff is very nice and quick but the food did not convince me this year.

This have been all the restaurants we have been to during this visit. If you are visiting one make sure to tag me in your story or just comment on my Instagram or blog post.

As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
