    Sirmione

    April 19, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Ich lass erstmal nur Bilder erzählen.

    Sehr früh sind wir zu unsere Wanderung um die kleine Halbinsel Sirmione ganz im Süden des See’s aufgebrochen.
    Wohl eher ein Spaziergang, da fast nur Asphalt.
    Den Rest unseres Tages fasse ich später zusammen.

    Lake Garda

    September 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We travelled to Lake Garda, about 3hrs away. The bottom of the lake is wide and Riva Del Garda where we were headed is at the top which narrows right down. Along the way we stopped for lunch and checked out a garden complete with a battleship! Riva Del Garda has a lovely piazza on the river and great shops 😊Read more

    North Italy Lakes

    June 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    From lake Orta we drive to Lake Maggiore and the village of Loveno Monbello which has a bucket cable car up a very high hill overlooking the city. On the top was about thirty hang gliders who were about to launch themselves off and have a race. You can see the Swiss mountains from the hilltop. We then drive to Lake Garda and stayed at Salo for one night. Salo was where the violin was invented.Read more

    Limone

    September 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    After an early morning hike to the midway point up a mountain (some of the party wanted to go all the way 🙄!?) we hopped on the ferry to Limone which used to be a huge lemon growing area. As it’s steep cliffs it was all terraced and to protect the trees from the cold in winter, there were wooden frames for glass panels. After a delicious pizza for lunch back to Riva Del Garda for a laze in the sun and swim.Read more

    Trip to Peschiera and Sirimone

    September 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Leisurely morning after a turbulent nights sleep with Jenni! As predicted the thunderstorms came but had cleared by lunchtime so off we set to visit Peschiera. Jenni and Megan helping Sue navigate the roads and Julie and Gilly with Lynne. As Gill doesn't know her left from right she wasn't much help! Arrived to find it was market day so the car park we had planned to meet was taken up with market stalls! After an italian late lunch by the river we moved on to Sirmione and took a boat ride round the peninsula. Walked up to Grotte Di Catullo - the remains of the largest and best preserved Roman villa with panoramic views that once had a thermal bath system. The Romans were definately ahead of their time!Read more

    Desenzano del Garda

    September 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Another beautiful day for exploring, headed up to Desenzano for the market to buy things for a picnic. Gathered the sweetest tomatoes, freshest foccacio, formaggio di capra and Italian sausage. Along with grapes, watermelon and peaches. The fruit tastes so good here.
    Jenni and Suey were successful in buying clothes from the stalls along with a few souvenirs. Drove to Rocca di Manerba, for a short hike up La Rocca for spectacular views over Lake Garda.
    Lovely day ended with a quick swim to cool down and a game of Uno!

    Lemoncello delight

    September 4, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Lemone Sul Gard. Headed for the top of Lake Garda and around the bend to the other side to the village where they grow lemons and make Lemoncello ( may have sampled a couple of glasses tonight after dinner!). In the afternoon we (as in Al driving, Betty & I navigating with the GPS & and the difficult task of taking all the photos) part way down the far side of the lake- some very windy steep mountain roads & tunnels but quite amazing.Read more

    Nur 3 Pässe heute

    June 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Heute gings in aller Früh erst Mal auf den Passo Tre Termini und dann auf den Colle Sant Eusebio. Nix Kaffee gab's da für uns. Und zuletzt noch auf den Passo Marmentino. Uiiiii da ging es hoch, und holprig ab und an. Vorsichtig und langsam.... Zum Passo del Mare wollten wir noch hoch, aber Wetter war schlecht. Bei der Abzweigung Beratung... Ich wäre eh unten geblieben und der Don hat beschlossen, den fahren wir ein andres Mal.
    Also zurück nach Brescia bissl shoppen und ohhhhhje schnell abbiegen ein Outlet 🤣🙈
    Shopping Queen des Tages 🤭📸 definitiv nicht ich

    Sirmione

    October 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Auf einer Halbinsel am Südufer liegt Sirmione, herrlicher Ort, jedoch bedeutend mehr los! Zur Zeit der Römer entstanden hier 3 Villen, übrig geblieben sind die „Grotten des Catull“.
    Eisdielen gibts hier an jeder Ecke und die Spaghetti Vongole waren perfekt!Read more
