    In July I toured the Lake Garda, the southern part. I started from Desenzano up in Bernaco from which I took the ferry which led me to Toscolano Maderno. Dali by bike are returned to Desenzano. It was nice the first part from Peschiera to Garda c and a dirt path on the Lake. To see

    Beautiful lakeside promenade with restaurants bars many people but without chaos. I would definitely recommend a stay.
