Like many resorts on Lake Garda, you can stroll along the lakeside promenade in Limone for relaxing views of the lake. Pretty cobbled lanes and steps wind their way up around all the shops and restaurants allowing you to explore to your heart’s content.
From Limone you can catch either a steamer or a hydrofoil ferry. The main ferry point is between Hotel All’Azzurro and Hotel La Palme. You can reach Riva on the steamer in 45 minutes, or Bardolino on the hydrofoil in 2 hours.
The nearest stations from Limone are Roverto or Peschiera. From Roverto, trains to Bolzano depart multiple times an hour or to Verona twice an hour. From Peschiera you can reach Verona in 20 minutes.
The bus service from Limone allows you to reach other resorts like Desenzano in 1 and a half hours, or to Riva in just 13 minutes. Buses depart once an hour from the bus station on Via IV Novembre.

The restaurants and ice cream parlours of Limone are dotted around the resort with some on the main harbourfront and some on the cobbled roads further inland. Similar to Spanish tapas bars, Italian bars often serve antipasti with the aperitivi. So don't be surprised if your cool Huge Spritz is served alongside a crisp bruschetta on the house.
Next to the main ferry point is Le Palme Ristorante, part of one of the oldest hotels in Limone. The restaurant is famous for its stunning infinity views across the lake. It’s great for lunch or dinner, but they also have a lounge area if you just want a drink.
On a little backstreet off the main road you’ll find Al Vecchio Fontec, a charming restaurant offering delicious meals for extremely reasonable prices. You’ll find Italian and more international dishes on the menu – but it gets extremely busy so it’s wise to book beforehand.
Famous for its ice cream is the Pink Panther Gelateria, and you’ll definitely see it – a bright pink archway frames the entrance. There are endless flavours and every colour of the rainbow to choose from. They also sell sweets and snacks as well as iced drinks to cool you down.
The rolling cobbled streets of Limone are surrounded by picturesque walks. If you like to take it easy, you can stroll along the bustling lakeside promenade - or wander through the olive groves for a little more peace and quiet. You can also walk north to the Sopino waterfall, or head past the harbour to the WWI outpost of Canu. The trails winding through the hilly countryside are more demanding, but the views are worth the effort. If you’d like a wider choice of walking routes, catch the ferry over to Gardone, Riva or Malcesine.

The narrow, cobbled streets of Limone make it hard for our coaches to drive right up to some of the hotels. Therefore, once you arrive in resort, it's possible that you may be taken to your accommodation by a smaller shuttle bus.
All our holidays include shared transfers to and from your hotel. Private transfers can be added when booking. These will be taken by car, 6-seater or minibus, depending on the number of people in your booking.
Make the most of your time away by combining two holidays into one. With a twin-centre holiday, you can choose any hotels in any resorts and we’ll put them together for you – as long as your two picks are from the same arrivals airport. Take inspiration from our customers and combine Limone with Garda.
Give us a call to plan your perfect trip or browse our pre-chosen combinations on our twin-centre holidays page.
Please keep in mind that transfers run on Wednesdays and Saturdays and may involve going via an airport.
If you want to get away from it all, but can't spare seven days, we have three and four night short breaks available in Limone at various hotels in resort.
