Gardone Riviera is located in the Lombardy region, in the province of Brescia. There are many things to see and do in Gardone Riviera, not the least of which is the spectacular Hruska Botanical Gardens, begun in 1910 by a dentist (of all things!) and naturalist.
The gardens boast over 2000 species of sub-tropical shrubs and trees, but don't let that be all you see. Take a walk along the promenade, and admire the cafes and restaurants lining the streets, along with the pretty flower beds and benches, should you need to rest a while. But our best tip is to walk slowly so you can take it all in, and not need to stop. Then again, maybe grabbing a coffee from one of the many cafes and sitting a while wouldn't be such a bad idea.
Why not treat yourself to a stay in the Grand Hotel Gardone Riviera? Built in 1881, in its day it was one of the largest resorts in Europe, and certainly the most trendy on the lake. It is still very impressive, and with the reputation of being the hotel Nabokov spotted his Lolita in, why not take time to read a book or magazine in the main salon, overlooking the lake. Indeed, it is the mix of resorts and greenery that is one of the reasons so many people come to holiday at Gardone Riviera.
In summer, why not wander the promenade and discover the shows that are on offer, boasting musical and cultural talent second-to-none. Or, explore the Vittoriale degli Italiani, the former home of poet Gabriele d'Annunzio, now a home to a museum. This immense home stretches over nine hectares, and is walled, so it gives an imposing impression. It also boasts the largest amphitheatre in Lake Garda, with 1500 seats (the property holds a theatrical season each July and August). The house itself is furnished exactly the same as d'Annunzio furnished it, giving the visitor a perfect view into life as a poet.
