Unmissable stops on a Lake Garda vespa tour
Peschiera del Garda: ready, set, go!
Start your Lake Garda Vespa tour in Peschiera, a city rich in history and charm. Take a leisurely stroll and discover its many treasures, such as the well-preserved Rocca, a fortress that offers splendid panoramic views of Lake Garda and the city, as well as the cobblestone streets lined with colourful houses, cafes, and typical restaurants.
This is also where you’ll find the Rent Garda Lake rental shop. After a walk, why not stop by to rent a Vespa? It’s a completely different way to explore Lake Garda! On the saddle of the world’s most famous flaming two-wheeler, it will be a delight to travel from one village to another, making stops to admire the scenery along the way and take some memorable photos. We can also suggest travel itineraries for a comprehensive 360° Lake Garda tour that engages your sight, taste, and smell.
The eastern shore: Lazise, Bardolino, and Punta San Vigilio
Following the convenient panoramic road along the lake’s eastern shore, you’ll arrive in Lazise. Visit its charming medieval old town and take a stroll along the lakeside promenade, where you can enjoy numerous bars and kiosks for a coffee or a refreshing drink.
Just a few kilometres from Lazise, you’ll also find Bardolino. Its lakeside promenade is one of the liveliest on the entire lake. Relax on one of the many beaches, then take a walk through the centre, exploring small hidden squares, bars, and shops selling local products. Bardolino is also home to the Olive Oil Museum, where you can learn about the history and production process, discovering the culture and long tradition of olive oil in the Garda area.
After Lazise and Bardolino, we recommend a stop at Punta San Vigilio to reach the Baia delle Sirene (Bay of Sirens), famous for its natural beauty and crystal-clear waters. Here, you can relax on the beach, take a refreshing swim, or simply enjoy the tranquillity of the place. If you prefer walking, the bay is surrounded by numerous gardens with olive trees, blooming flowers, and rose bushes, all along the paths that also offer several panoramic viewpoints of the lake.
The northern shore: Malcesine and Riva del Garda
Continuing along the panoramic road that runs along the lake, you’ll also reach Malcesine and Riva del Garda. Framed by majestic mountains, Malcesine is a small treasure waiting to be discovered: cobblestone streets, narrow alleys that open onto the lake, panoramic viewpoints, and small shops selling local specialties are scattered throughout the historic center. If you have enough time, take the cable car located just outside the centre. The summit of Monte Baldo offers the ultimate panoramic view from which to admire breathtaking views of the entire lake.
Continuing north, you’ll then reach Riva del Garda, a city that combines history and entertainment for all tastes. The historic centre, rich in monuments, is just a short walk from a large park that runs along the lake, extending almost to Torbole. The park is filled with kiosks, trees, and small beaches, providing the perfect setting to relax in the shade or sunbathe.
For two-wheeler enthusiasts, a Lake Garda Vespa tour is an experience not to be missed. Starting from Peschiera and following the panoramic road along the lake, you can discover the beauties of Lazise and Bardolino, the tranquility of the Baia delle Sirene in Punta San Vigilio, Malcesine and Monte Baldo, and finally, end your journey in Riva del Garda, with its blend of history and entertainment.
