“Isola del Garda
The island of Garda is the largest island of the whole Lake. On the island there is the luxurious palace of the Cavazza family, surrounded by wonderful Italian gardens and a rich forest of cypresses, acacias and pines.
Between April and October guided tours to this beautiful island are organized together with the Cavazza family. There is no public service to get there, but from the ports of the most tourist resorts of Lake Garda there is a private service of speedboats and small boats whose drivers have direct arrangements for guided tours. Here you will feel on your skin the heavenly atmosphere of this island.
To the south of the island there is a chain of rocks and shallow waters, at the end of which emerges a tiny island called San Biagio, also known as Isola dei Conigli ( Rabbit’s island): a small treasure chest of Italy characterized by green meadows, cypresses and flowering bushes. But not only that. As the name suggests, one of its peculiarities is the presence on the territory of numerous bunnies in freedom now accustomed to the company of humans.
