Its name derives from “warda guard” which means to guard : is not by chance that Garda has for centuries served as sentinels in the entire basin of the lake, holding the pride of having given his name, in the twelfth century, all the lake, until then called Benaco. Situated at the center of a wide gulf between the Fortress, where you can enjoy a magnificent view, and the lovely Punta San Vigilio, known for its beautiful beaches, is truly one of the jewels of the Garda Lake. Today Garda has become a fully equipped nice town: the alleys of the old town, once inhabited by fishermen, now houses shops, hotels and restaurants. The activity of fishing is still practiced by the locals and the most important events of Garda are linked to the fishing tradition: the “Palio delle Contrade” is a race that is held in mid-August on the typical rowboat, while the “Sardellata Pal to the Vo” is a charming dinner by boat in the moonlight on the lake, which is organized in the month of July.
Like all other towns along the lake, even Lazise is justly proud of its past: the medieval splendor of his memories are still important, as the castle, which was built by the family scaligieri in the mid-fourteenth century, still contains an old town village full of shops, restaurants and bars.
