Before leaving for a tour to discover the major lakes of northern Italy, you cannot miss a visit to Venice: a walking tour through the city of water, to discover the canals that surround the historic center of the Serenissima, with unmissable stops dedicated to places of greatest historical and cultural importance. During your one-day stay in Venice, you certainly can't miss a gondola ride along the Grand Canal but, before that, you can't miss Piazza San Marco with its homonymous Basilica, the Palazzo Ducale and the Campanile. You will be guided through the Calli to the shopping streets crossing the Rialto Bridge, reaching the San Polo sestiere or continuing an alternative route to get to the Cannaregio sestiere. Venice is an incredible discovery that must be admired from top to bottom without losing attention even for a second, especially because the city does not allow it: you will notice the richness and architectural magnificence in every corner, so much so that you will be breathless. Then you will move to Sirmione a suggestive town overlooking Lake Garda: despite being very close to the city of Verona, Sirmione is part of the province of Brescia, in Lombardy. The town is renowned all over the world for various reasons, both from a tourist point of view thanks to the thermal waters it offers and the Roman history it has preserved over time, and geographically due to the curious peninsula on which it extends its territory. The city boasts a rich historical and artistic heritage such as the Castle of Sirmione and the Catullus Caves, enclosed by a turquoise frame, for the thermal waters that surround it, but also green, for the parks and trees that play a visually suggestive role and in harmony with the ancient fortress and the open-air museum experience. Peschiera del Garda is the southernmost town of Lake Garda as well as the westernmost municipality of the entire Veneto region, on the border with the Lombardy region. The old city, born at the mouth of the Mincio river, inevitably recalls the canals of Venice: the waterways surround the peculiar star-shaped Fortress, which in 2017 became part of the UNESCO. You can access the historic center through the two entrance doors positioned on two opposite sides, Porta Verona and Porta Brescia, a clear reference to the two provinces with which Peschiera del Garda borders. As a link to the two parts of the city center, separated by the canal, there is the Ponte dei Voltoni which will take you from the main square to the Museum of Fishing and Lake Traditions. Residence of two pile-dwelling archaeological sites dating back to the Bronze Age and of Roman excavations located in the center of the town, Peschiera del Garda is renowned not only historically but above all at a tourist level: given the strategic point that allows tourists to organize visits and excursions also to Lombard locations such as Sirmione and Desenzano del Garda, Peschiera del Garda has numerous holiday centers with large capacities, so much so as to double the resident population in the high season. Peschiera records over 2 million official visitors every year, placing it in the top 25 of tourist destinations in Italy and in second place (after Lazise) as an Italian lake destination.
