Bardolino, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene

Welcome to Bardolino, a little town right on Italy's largest—and arguably most gorgeous—lake, Lago di Garda, in the province of Verona. Picturesque Verona is as pretty as they come; no wonder Shakespeare used it as the setting for his famous opus on tragic young love, Romeo and Juliet. As for Bardolino, archaeology tells us this little lakeside gem has been inhabited since prehistoric times, and buildings from the 9th century still stand in this town. There are even older ruins in the greater Lake Garda area. Bardolino vacation rentals are on the lake's southeast side, an area heavy in both wine production and more splendiferous landscape.

This town's so magnifico there's even a wine named after it

Oenophiles might know that Bardolino is famous for its wine of the same name, a light strawberry-colored red that's delicious when chilled. Even if you're not a wine lover, a vineyard tour is worth it simply for the food and scenery. Unsurprisingly, the town has a month-long festival devoted to grapes and wine in September. History buffs can take a guided tour around Verona to hear about the area's pre-Roman history. And of course, there's gorgeous Lago di Garda, where you can boat, fish, windsurf, or just grab a raft—or a "zattera", as the Italians say—and just completely chill out on the water.

No shortage of fun for the old and the young

If you're looking to book Bardolino vacation rentals with your bambinos, you can add the safari park and dinosaur models at Parco Nature Vida to your itinerary. You can also find your inner kid at the massive lakeside amusement park of Gardaland. Remember all the wine that's made in this area? Of course you do! Visit Museo del Vino to see wine-making processes then and now. If you head about 15 miles south around the lake, you'll hit Sirmione, an ancient fortified town with healing sulfur springs, and the archaeological site of Grotte di Catullo which houses the ruins of a Roman villa.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day at Lago di Garda?

Summer is perfect lake weather in Bardolino, with highs in the mid- to upper 70s. These warm months come with a side of rain, and occasionally, an extra side of thunderstorm. Watching these storms approach is awe-inspiring, so pour a glass of wine, sit on your lakefront deck and enjoy. With all that, it's a no-brainer that summer's a popular time for Bardolino vacation rentals. September also attracts large crowds for the wine festival. In December and January, temps are in the 30s and snowfalls turn this area into a winter wonderland, although the lake itself doesn't freeze.

Words can't describe this beauty, but really, just go there

Bardolino's in lush north Italy, a fertile region with plenty of green spaces and mountain ranges. It's on the shores of Lake Garda, whose sheer beauty you'll just have to see in person—no exaggeration, it's absolutely bellissimo. The lake is narrow at the north, where the striking mountain range known as the Dolomites towers over the landscape. The southern part of Garda is much wider, and that's where you'll find most Bardolino vacation rentals. If you have a car and feel like a day trip, Venice on the Adriatic Sea coast is about 90 miles east.
