Limone on Lake Garda

One of Lake Garda's many joys is its marriage of the Mediterranean and alpine. The village of Limone is one of the prettiest spots to appreciate this unique meeting, where olive trees and citrus groves jockey for attention with vaulting alpine summits. Hop off the boat and look around: a tour of its engaging, hilly lanes soon gives way to countryside; up past orchards you walk, through pristine forests to countryside that belongs to the mountains – wildflowers in season, rushing streams, and the grand granite giants of the Alps looming to your north. And below, your constant companion – glittering Garda, a serene beauty, linking Italy's 'head', its wild mountains, with its exuberant Mediterranean heart.
