Car Hire & Airport Transfers

A hire car is the number one way to explore Lake Garda and offers all the freedom you need.

If you’d rather not do any driving on your holiday, then an Airport Transfer is the perfect way to get to your villa hassle free. We will arrange your driver to pick you up at the airport and drop you at your accommodation.

We have a number of villas that are ideal if you are travelling without a car and which are within walking distance to Lake Garda’s prettiest towns and villages.

By Plane

Located in the north of Italy and between the two major cities of Venice and Milan, Lake Garda is served by a number of airports and all within easy reach. Verona airport and Milan Bergamo are the two closest being 30 minutes and 50 minutes away respectively. Milan Linate airport, to the east of Milan, offers good connections and Milan Malpensa is the largest long-haul airport near to Lake Garda. Marco Polo Airport in Venice is another major airport and is around 2 hours away.

Discover more details in our Guides on How to get to Lake Garda from Milan Bergamo and Milan Malpensa airports.

By Train

Italy’s train service provides frequent and reliable transport through Italy and offers an excellent service connecting Lake Garda to the main cities of Milan and Venice. With only two train stations servicing Lake Garda – Desenzano del Garda and Peschiera del Garda on the south coast – you should consider onward travel from here. Taxis are readily available and there is a regular bus and ferry service.

Visiting Riva del Garda or Malcesine in the north of Lake Garda? You may want to travel to Rovereto and take a bus or taxi down. This could also be a quicker option if travelling to Limone on public transport.

Book your Tickets online and in advance at Trenitalia.
