Discover Lake GardaLake Garda is nestled between the provinces of Verona to the south-east (in Veneto), Brescia to the south-west (in Lombardia) and Trento to the north (in Trentino Alto Adige). It is the largest lake in Italy with a surface of 370 square kilometres.
The climate in Lake Garda
The lake has a mild climate with subtropical features. The village that enjoys the warmest temperatures is Malcesine, while the coldest is Peschiera del Garda.
Spring and autumn are the seasons when it rains the most, while summer has a typically Mediterranean climate, warm and dry, with sudden and intense storms in August.
In winter, temperatures are warmer than the surrounding areas and rainfall is scarce; there may be some fog. The banks of the lake do rarely freeze during the winter season, for the presence of winds blowing on the coast and mitigate winter temperatures.

Some historical notions
Lake Garda has been settled by human communities since the Middle Paleolithic age.
During the Roman period, the most important roads of the area were built, such as the Via Gallica, which connected Milan to Verona through Peschiera, and the Claudia Augusta, which linked the area of lake to the Northern regions.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, the lake was flooded with many barbarian tribes, the first to settle down in a permanent position was that of the Lombards.
In the thirteenth century the noble family of the Scaliger conquered the Eastern shore of the lake; they realized several defensive structures such as the castles of Sirmione, Malcesine and Riva del Garda.
In 1786 the German poet Wolfgang Goethe went on holiday in Torbole and Malcesine during his "grand tour" of Italy and spokes about Lake Garda in his own works.
Ten years later, the lake was involved in the Napoleonic Wars.
The lake was also involved in Wars of Italian independence, but this did not cause particular socio-political consequences for the lake's administrative organization.
The First World War marked the top of the lake, close to the Monte Baldo where you can still find relics from that period.
During the Second World War, the lake was not affected by the fighting.
