Italy and Europe are rich of beautiful places to visit by sea, like these Mediterranean destinations that can only be reached by boat, but why missing out the treasures of the mainland?
The Italian seas, the intricate network of rivers and lakes, and the unique areas such as the Venice lagoon offer luxury lovers suggestive landscapes to discover and adventures to live both for who prefers an active lifestyle.
A 10-metre boat perfectly harmonizes these two souls and allows to move nimbly even in rivers and lakes, easily finding places to moor.
Lake Garda, also known as Lake Benaco, is shared between three Italian regions: Lombardy, Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige, making it a peculiar crossroads of different cultures, traditions and lifestyles.
By boat is it possible to discover all the gems and taste all the flavours and live the various experiences lake Garda offers.
Relax lovers can reach Sirmione on the southern coast of the lake to get pampered in the spa and the thermal baths open all year long and admire the Scaligero Castle and the Roman ruins complex known as Grottoes of Catullus.
Travelling west the coast is animated by various charming towns, most appreciated for their lively social and night life, such as Desenzano and Salò.
On the other hand, Gardone Riviera is known for “Il Vittoriale degli Italiani” (The shrine of Italian victories), the complex built by the Italian writer Gabriele D’Annunzio. At the Vittoriale is it possible to feel the charm of one of the most unique figures of the Italian history by discovering the rooms of D’Annunzio’s villa, going up to the deck of the military vessel Nave Puglia, visiting the mausoleum and the amphitheatre, still used for concerts and to host international artists.
Continuing the journey direction north, it is possible to reach the region of Trentino, where in Riva del Garda, the water meets the mountains creating a unique atmosphere enriched by the historic buildings, such as the hydroelectric power station and the picturesque city centre.
Returning south along the eastern coast it is possible to stop by Malcesine to take the cable car and reach Monte Baldo, 1780 meters above sea level, aboard the spectacular rotating cabins, which offer a 360° view of the Garda area.
For thrill-seekers or for families it is recommended to visit one of the amusement parks of the area, such as Gardaland, to enjoy a day of fun.
The Veneto coast is also famous for its wines, such as Lugana and Chiaretto, which are absolutely worth trying, better if in a small bar on the lake or directly in your own 10-metre boat, in the luxury of the highly refined interiors.
