Road trips from Verona: what to do, what to see
An easy day trip from Verona, Lake Garda (Lago di Garda) is less than 35 km from the city centre of Verona. It's a popular place to visit, especially in summer when the lake's green surroundings are in full foliage. Take a day hike following the many paths around the lake (at least parts of it) or just find a nice spot to enjoy the view and swim. In the village, you can visit the Church Cloister and the Church of Santo Stefano.
What's special about Bardolino is that it has a typically Mediterranean feel, despite being located lake-side instead of sea-side. The warm climate makes it perfect for olive groves, cypresses, laurels and vineyards to prosper. The wine is great here, that's for sure. Have you tried a glass of "Bardolino" red yet? In the city, don't miss the San Severo Church and the Pieve of Santa Maria.
If you travel just a little further up Lake Garda you'll reach the Italian Alps, the perfect place for a little outdoors during your holidays in Verona. Monte Baldo is just past Caprino Veronese, easily reached for a day trip or longer. In summer it's a popular spot for hiking, trekking and even harder mountain climbs. In winter, it's a popular spot for skiing and other winter sports.
