Lake Garda events in November

Find out what's on calendar this month

A pleasant mixture of colours, scents, delights and unique emotions. Lake Garda hosts a wide range of events all year round, celebrating the region’s traditions by combining nature, culture and local food & wine to offer a variety of entertainment like no other place.

With its foliage in red hues, the month of November features a beautiful landscape, whose bright colours can be admired during walks on the lake, in the forests or in the parks. For some visitors, this autumn scenery is pure romance, for others sweet melancholy; in any case it is the perfect time to enjoy the tranquillity of Lake Garda and the resorts without traffic jams and tourist crowds.

Thanks to the so-called St. Martin's Summer, the weather is particularly mild, and many culinary festivals and sports events are held around the lake at the beginning of November. Towards the end of the month, when temperatures begin to drop and winter gets closer, the first Christmas markets open.

Here is a list of the things to do on Lake Garda in November:
