So what's it like?
Sitting against the mountainous backdrop of Lake Garda's northwestern shore in a secluded cove, Limone is surrounded by olive groves and the remains of old lemon houses.
It's a lively resort nestled between the lake and cliffside and is filled with narrow lanes and steps that wind around its shops, hotels, restaurants and cafés. Wander through the bustling promenade and you’ll catch some spectacular views across the narrower part of the lake, up to the imposing peaks of the Monte Baldo.
If you’d like to see more of the lake's views and explore Garda’s other resorts, there’s a regular ferry service that’ll take you north to Riva and Torbole or south to Malcesine, Garda and beyond. Or hire a private boat to see the terraced lemon groves that give Limone its name and to explore the pretty swimming beaches that dot its coastline.
If you want to experience the highlights of the surrounding area, try our Classic Italian Discovery Package and take in the scenery of the Dolomite mountains, immerse yourself in the culture of Venice and explore the beautiful city of Verona. Or if you’d like to see more of Lake Garda itself try our Lake Garda Discovery Package and enjoy a relaxing day touring Lake Garda, a wine tour at one of Lake Garda's famous vineyards and a day immersed in the culture of Venice. Or if you're more interested in Italy's world renowned cuisine, try our Flavours of Italy Discovery Package and learn about Italy's famous flavours on an Italian food tour and visit to a local vineyard. Must book by 29 April 2015.

The lake is the best way to get about if you're staying in Limone. Lake ferry and fast hydrofoil services operate throughout the day to other lakeside towns. There is also a bus service to Desenzano and Brescia.
Not for the less mobile
We don't recommend this resort if you're less mobile - there are lots of hills, steps or cobbled streets that might make it tricky to get around .
