Leave the tourist trail of the bigger towns on the lake and visit Torri. It's a jewel of a place, a small village about half way up the Veneto side of Lake Garda. It's characteristic and full of atmosphere, with medieval walls and towers. There's a small Roman harbour and a Scaligeri castle as well as gorgeous trattorias and bars. Stroll along the lakeside walk and go for a swim - it's like taking a dip in a swimming pool, with crystal clear water and smooth pink marble underfoot.
