Lazy drifting swans and crisp weather were the perfect complement for a waterfront view of Lago di Garda in northern Italy. With alpine vistas and water stretching for miles all around, the resort town of Sirmione and neighboring Peschiera del Garda are well worth a visit.
Stop by the Tortuga on the edge of town for light snacks, caffe and cocktails with a breathtaking view and tables al fresco. To taste flavors of the region, order the cheese platter that comes with marmalade, preserved apricot with just a hint of garlic, and luscious honey. Favoloso!
