Your guide to Bardolino holidays
Bardolino’s most famous export has to be its wine, so visiting a vineyard is a must when you are in the area. The ‘rosso’ wine that is so well thought of across the world has its roots – quite literally – on the lake front. It all stems from the Romans who enjoyed the area well before any tourists arrived. Bardolino is still fairly new to the holiday schedule, having only become somewhere for visitors to stay in about 100 years ago.
As well as having the opportunity to see how the vines are grown, and how the wine itself is created, no one should miss the fascinating Museo del Vino, or Museum of Wine. This tells the entire story, from the very beginnings of the wine-making industry in the area to the present day. And for the ultimate in vineyard tours, try to book a spot with Cantina Caorsa – the grapes grown here account for about two thirds of all the wine made in the area.
The beautiful little private island of Isola del Garda has a wealth of history and many famous, impressive visitors over the years including St Francis of Assisi, Mussolini, and a plethora of kings, queens, and even emperors. Guided tours run from April to October, and outside of those months you can still see this gorgeous island by hiring a boat and viewing it from the water.
There’s also so much nature to explore in the region. The Rock of Manerba is a designated nature park, known locally as La Rocca. The visitor centre gives details of the area’s history. It’s a beautiful place to have a picnic and enjoy your surroundings.
Although you may not think it at first, considering it’s located on the edge of a lake rather than in a traditional holiday resort, Bardolino does indeed have some fine beaches to enjoy. Some of these beaches are private, but there are still more that are open to the public all year round.
Just a few minutes’ walk away from the very centre of Bardolino is Lido Cisano. This isn’t your traditional holiday beach, as it’s covered in rocks and grass rather than sand, but it is no less beautiful or relaxing. It actually makes the ideal place for children to play, as the water can’t rise too high. There is even a playground for when the little ones need to burn off some energy. And when hunger strikes, there are bars and restaurants that surround the beach, or you could happily have a picnic with local produce bought from the town.
Lido Mirabella is another gorgeous place to spend some time. Even though it’s a private beach, anyone can use it if they pay a small fee. Within that cost you can even hire the beach and watersports equipment, so if you are looking for a quiet place to get away from it all, Lido Mirabella may well fit the bill.
Finally, there is Punta Lido Cornicello. Although this beach might be the smallest of the ones that surround Bardolino, this pebble beach has its own bar, restaurant, and boat rental centre, which means you can settle in one spot and enjoy it for hours at a time.
