Desenzano del Garda

Desenzano del Garda is located at the South West corner of Lake Garda Italy in Northern Italy. Lake Garda lies at the root of the Italian alps so a magnificent towering mountain ridges are that you see outside your Lake view window. Desenzano is midway between Milan and Venice and is one of only two towns at Lake Garda where the main train: East - West, stops at. Therefor it is strategically positioned if you plan to do some sightseing in Northern Italy. For example, Milan and venice are about 1.5 ours away and Verona is 30 minutes away. Also there is a waterpark in 30 minute drive away along with the amusement park, Gardaland. One thing good about Desenzano in the summer, something which you will not get in places which are not by the lake, is the refreshing breeze from the lake. In summer it can get very warm in Italy so being located by the lake, the air will not become stale. In other words, warm but fresh.
