Gardone Riviera is an illustrious resort on the western banks of Lake Garda with a cute piazza sloping down to the lakeshore and a peaceful lakeside promenade decorated with well-kept flowerbeds. You will find a good choice of places to eat and drink, and some lovely lake viewpoints.
Gardone Riviera's reputation did not come from nowhere. The town has a rich architectural heritage which has contributed to its international fame. We especially recommend a visit to the Hruska Botanical Gardens which are situated just a short walk uphill from the waterfront. In Gardone you will also find Il Vittoriale, a complex of buildings and gardens that were built for the Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, and it is also his burial place. You will also find a cinema, nightclub, several shops and restaurants in the town.
You can spend days on the lakeside beaches and you will find both private and public beaches. You can even take a boat trip to other towns on the lake and across to the island Isola del Garda from Gardone, which today is privately owned by a wealthy family who sometimes organize public concerts. There are also guided tours around the island.
