Sitting pretty on the shores of Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, Limone is overlooked by the dominating Dosso di Roveri Cliffs. From the lush green hills with looming trees to the lakeside retreats perfect for whiling away the hours in complete relaxation, Limone is a wonderful choice for holidaymakers hoping to relax and unwind as part of their summer break.
The old centre of the town is incredibly popular with tourists who wish to explore what its streets have to offer, while these streets then lead on to picture-perfect olive and lemon groves that you could easily lose yourself in for a fragrant afternoon. Romantic and picturesque, this lakeside resort is a beautiful spot to enjoy at the northern end of Lake Garda. From sampling the locally made limoncello liqueur to hopping on a ferry to explore what other resorts the lake has to offer, a Limone holiday can be as action-packed or as restful as you want to make it.
Italy's answer to Alton Towers, Gardaland is a real treat, particularly for the kids and the young at heart. As the eighth most popular theme park in Europe, and the most popular in Italy, you can find it on the eastern shore of Lake Garda, with plenty in store for everyone. It's expanded considerably since it opened in the 1970s, and is now home to six rollercoasters and a whole host of other rides to test your nerves on.
Head into the mountains for a chance to savour the crisp mountain air, while admiring the phenomenal sights that await you from this spectacular vantage point. Don your walking boots and head for the mountain paths which will take you further towards the clouds, for a chance to absorb the mesmerising scenery that surrounds the Italian lakes.
Situated directly opposite Limone, on the eastern side of the lake, Malcesine is a popular resort for tourists for many reasons. While conditions in the area are ideal for windsurfing and sailing, it's perhaps the cable car that takes you to the summit of Monte Baldo that is one of the resort's highlights.
Marvel at the Verona Opera
Verona is the closest city to Lake Garda and, while it's a sight to see in itself, you should organise your visit around a performance of the Verona Opera for an unforgettable experience.
Wander the Promenade
You may think that this is a rather average thing to do but when you see just how beautiful the Limone promenade is, with flurries of flowers flowing over balconies lightly scenting the air as you walk, you will realise that it's an incredibly romantic activity, particularly at sunset when the sun goes down beyond the horizon, glistening off the lake as it goes.
Explore the Local Towns
Hop on one of the regular ferry services or the express hydrofoil and spend a day or two exploring the other towns that are scattered around the lake. Take part in one of the watersports or local activities on offer, or simply dine al fresco at one of the taverns that can be found on the lakeside. Whether it's Riva, Garda or Malcesine that tickles your fancy, there are plenty of lakeside towns and villages to discover and enjoy, broadening your holiday horizons.
As one of the very few resorts on the western side of the lake that appeals to holidaymakers, Limone is a tranquil spot that's perfect for families and couples alike. Whether you wish to embark on adventure in the great outdoors or you'd prefer to pull up a pew and watch the world go by in this picture-perfect resort, Limone holidays are full of potential.
Located at the north of the lake, Riva is one of the closest resorts to Limone and offers a whole host of fantastic opportunities for its visitors. Venture off in search of the Varone Falls, just 3km from the resort, or sign up for one of the many watersports courses on offer at the lakeside, including windsurfing, sailing and more.
