With gorgeous scenery, picturesque lakeside towns, palaces and castles, fine restaurants, and family attractions such as Canevaworld, it's easy to see why Lake Garda is so popular. But when you add up entry costs to all the attractions and the price of meals, it can become an expensive place to visit.
With Lake Garda vacation packages you can dramatically cut the cost of visiting this Italian destination. Add together hotel, car hire and flight costs and you'll discover huge savings that you're sure to put to good use around the lake.
Hotel prices tend to peak with Lake Garda's holiday season, around July and August. Plan a vacation for spring (April to June) or the fall (September and October) and you'll probably find good deals and enjoy some fine weather.
