Italian Lakes

The Italian Lakes stretch across Northern Italy. The Lakes are very popular to tourists, combining good weather with attractive scenery. The climate is mild in both summer and winter, producing Mediterranean vegetation, with beautiful gardens growing rare and exotic plants. The biggest three lakes, which are predominantly located in the Lombardy region, are Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore. Other, less known but still beautiful, lakes include Lake Iseo, Lake Lugano, Lake Varense and Lake Idro in the Lombardy region. Lake Bracciano, Lake Bolsena, Lake Vico, Lake Albano and Lake Nemi in the Lazio Region. Lake Orta in Piedmont and Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. And Sardinia is the exception to the rule in the south of Italy with Lake Omodeo and Lake Coghinas.

Lake Garda (Italian: Lago di Garda) is the largest of the Italian lakes with an area of 370 square kilometres. It is long and slim with a southern shore of low, rolling hills, and a contrasting northern end which is surrounded by imposing mountains. Popular destinations on Lake Garda include, Sirmione and Desenzano del Garda. The second largest lake is Lake Maggiore (Italian: Lago Maggiore) with an area of 210 square kilometres. It stretches out of Lombardy in the west to the Piedmont region and reaches into the Alps. Popular destinations include, Stresa, Isola Bella, Isola Madre and the beautiful gardens of the Borromean Islands. The third of the big three Italian Lakes is Lake Como (Italian: Lago di Como) with an area of 146 square kilometres. This is a peaceful and wooded Lake.
