A lovely city, with a spectacular Roman amphitheatre, Verona also has the advantage of not being too far from Lake Garda. The largest of the Italian lakes is also probably the one that’s most visited. In spite of the fact that we weren’t exactly the only tourists, I loved our visit to some of the small villages, among them Sirmione. Although we travelled by rented car, there is also the possibility of taking a ferry between different points along the lake. However you do it, the visit is worth the trouble.
