The landscapes of Garda
The Lake Garda landscape is extraordinarily rich in surprising scenarios. Who could imagine that this area is also known for citrus fruits? One would expect to find them only in the temperate regions of the Mediterranean basin, and instead the lemons are also found here and are of extraordinary quality. The Garda is unique due to the particular morphology of its territory which favors a sort of microclimate favorable to the growth of typical products of more temperate climates. You will be surprised observing expanses of centuries-old olive groves scattered on cliffs that slope down to the lake shore.
You will discover the citrus gardens, with the production of lemons that grow in the terraces that dot the landscape with yellow. A suggestive way to discover the Garda is to go by boat.

Boat trips on Lake Garda: a journey full of flavors
The Garda region allows food and wine itineraries to be tried. There are two dishes that we would like to recommend because they are specialties of the area, which are rooted in the true Garda tradition.
When it comes to food and wine it is important to mention the three wine routes of the Garda area of Brescia. Noteworthy is the Strada del Franciacorta, a territory planted with vines between Brescia and Lake Iseo. Here the Franciacorta is produced, a sparkling wine that is made with the classic Italian method.
The Wine and Flavors Route of the Garda instead runs along the lake coast, from Sirmione to Limone. Here are produced Lugana, Garda Classico and San Martino della Battaglia. These are wines that can be combined perfectly with fish dishes.
That of Garda is a rich ecosystem. In the waters of the lake the only endemic specimen grows among all the species living in these parts. This is the carpione, which is grilled or baked, seasoned with garlic, lemon and rosemary.
