One of the most scenic drives in Europe takes you around the Shores of Lake Garda. Hiring a car is easy there and you can then also use it for a drive to visit historic Verona, less than 30 minutes away. From there too, the Brenner Pass will take you quickly over the border into Austria
for some different culture and experiences. Garda, or Lake Garda as tourists commonly refer to it, is easily accessible from the main international airport of Verona-Villafranca
. This airport is located approximately 15km from the area of Garda, making it a short and easy journey in your hire car. Rental cars can be collected from the airport, or in Garda itself. We recommend to book well in advance to secure the best prices, especially in peak season. The next closest airport is Brescia-Montichari
, which is around 30km away. EasyJet provide a range of low-cost flights from various UK
Lake Garda in northern Italy is so magical that tourists continue to visit there year after year and often make use of a rental car to do so. With a vehicle you can choose to stay at one of a number of towns along the lake or hop from one to the other eating, relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. Some of the towns worth seeing are Toscolano and Maderno, Torri del Benaco and Moniga. Malsecine with its winding medieval streets and an old castle which was constructed in the 14th century is incredibly beautiful.
