Lake Garda events in December

Find out what's on calendar this month

A journey through scents, flavours and unique sceneries. Any time of the year, Lake Garda offers many ways to enjoy its nature, traditions, food and wine in places impossible to find anywhere else.

December, let the Christmas spirit time to shine, where magic and festive lights create unforgettable surroundings. During this time of the year, Christmas markets full of handmade crafts and food are easy to find, where it is possible to warm up sipping some hot beverages, such as the inevitable mulled wine.
To embrace the culture, folklore and culinary pleasures away from the cold winter breeze, indoor activities are planned, too.
