The centrepiece of your holidays in Bardolino is likely to be in the town’s main square. Full of inviting terrace cafes, this is the ideal spot to sit and relax or listen to the evening choral or music concerts often held there. Stroll along the pretty harbour and you’ll find the picturesque lakeside promenade, with a lengthy scenic walk bringing you to the nearby town of Garda. Whether you’re seeking 5-star luxury and relaxation or an attractive hotel as a base to explore the neighbouring towns, you’ll find a wide array of places to stay on your Bardolino holidays.
A Shopper’s Paradise
Abundant in traditional Italian charm, it is no surprise that Bardolino holiday is a favourite for those looking for a quiet retreat away from busy cities. Capture some of that small-world beauty by paying a visit to the town’s weekly market on a Thursday morning. Stretching out across the main promenade, the market is a hustling and bustling myriad of local food stalls, thrifty fashions and unique souvenirs. If you’d rather a little more style to your shopping, head to the Piazza Matteotti at the weekend for a great selection of locally-made leather goods. For most visitors, it is the wine and not the striking architecture that entices them to the town. Whether you fancy a tipple or not, head to the Museo del Vino for a detailed tour of how wine is made in the area – taking grapes from the nearby hillsides and transforming them into award-winning bottles. If you’d rather be drinking the wine than seeing how it’s made, however, you’re in luck. Bardolino’s Centro Storico is a veritable hub of bars and restaurants, each offering a unique take on a range of Italian dishes – with fresh local fish, regional olive oil and Bardolino wine prevalent on the menu. Many restaurants are situated with lakeside seating, allowing you to enjoy your meal and gaze out across the water as the sun sets.
