Walking around lake Garda…

The area where I live is full of interesting places to visit. One of the places I like more than others is Lake Garda.

It is a turistic place so I can get in touch with english, german, french, swedish, spanish friends and more and more ones that I am sorry, I might forget to mention. The pee-mail you get here is of first quality :P!!!

Not to forget that even coffee shops and restaurants treat me much better because they are used to having guests from all Europe and all the world and many are travelling with us doggy friends!

Don’t get too excited … this does not mean you have plenty of spaces where you can go off-leash… no no no… :-(, but you can get a lot of fun anyway…. wharf!!! 🙂

The colours the day we took this picture were incredibly bright: looks like being in a postcard!

Here we were on the top of a hill next to Garda, on the walk to Monte Luppia:

Here I am instead on the beach of the Lake:

Lake Garda is not a small lake, there are a lot of villages around it. This sunday we went to Garda and from this village you have a lot of different walks you can decide to do … you can walk along the lake, or you can go on different walks (easy ones) on the hills and mountain that are facing the lake.

At the top of one of the hills there is a wonderful view of Garda:

If instead you are willing to spend a little bit more enery you can have a proper trekking day:

Just one advice… the place is loved by mountain bikers… so be sure you like bikes… ;)! I did not like them too much at the beginning… wanted to run along them!!! But now I learnt that even if they go very fast they are friends and I do not care if they pass by!!!

It is also a place where a lot of people go with horses… !!! So on one side you can have horse candies (yummy – but I am never able to have any – humans do not appreciate them :-() on the other you can find yourself among a lot of very big four-legged sort of doggies, but much bigger than me!!!

If you have an idea about a bark around us, here are some links to give you a more detailed idea of the lake and of the incredible offer it can give – not only to us doggies!!! You have a wonderful place for wind-surfers, you can go tracking with horses (and doggies) or mountain-bikes!!! Bau Bau!!!




If you pass by – don’t forget to let me know!

Ciao, Lucille

  1. Oh Lucille! What a beautiful, beautiful post!! I love it! The pictures are just stunning – I know it is a shame it is not off-leash but you are SO lucky to have such a beautiful place to walk in near you! I really wish I could come and walk with you…(sigh)…maybe in another life (as the Chinese would say!) I like all the tourist info you give as well!

    Hey! I also love the new additions you have made to your blog! Especially the pictures in your sidebar – everything is so colourful now – it looks fantastic!! 😀

We never go anywhere or do anythign now without taking a camera machine just in case we want to take a photo to show on the blog! Congrats on her new camera machine – I’m sure she is going to have lots of fun with it!!

    We took Darwin to Vancouver Island (Canada) last weekend, and we went on a hike and walked by some horse “candies” and she quickly rolled over in it! Her first time doing that! It was funny, yet not funny at the same time! heehhe
