A day exploring with the dulcet tones of Dean Martin
We wish we had allowed more time around Lake Garda as the scenery and little towns are so picturesque.
However, we were really pleased that we toured around the lake to appreciate its beauty from north to south.
A helpful guide
If you're hooked like us and want to tour around the beautiful Italian Lakes in northern Italy, then take a look at this DK Eyewitness book.

Where were we heading?
Our stops were to be; Peschiera del Garda, Salò and the hilltop Sanctuary of Montecastello, Tignale.
We’d visited Malcesine the previous day by boat from Limone Sul Garda.

Sanctuary of Montecastello
We kept going and made it to the top, and yes, the views were amazing. The monastery looked as though it was just clinging onto the edge of the mountain side.
It was a bit of a hazy day, so, unfortunately, the views weren’t perfect, but hey we got to the top.
Although we should have done a little research, as we didn’t realise that you weren’t allowed to enter the church if you were wearing shorts.
