Lake Garda events in October

Find out what's on calendar this month

A unique mixture of colours, scents, pleasures and emotions. Lake Garda is a tourist magnet, especially in summer, but it hosts a wide range of events all year round, celebrating the territory’s traditions by combining nature, culture and local wine & food.

October is the autumn month par excellence. A melancholic and romantic season at the same time. With the days getting shorter, it marks the end of summer and anticipates winter. But before nature will go into hibernation, it bursts with its last beauty, and the colourful landscape, the mild climate and the fresh air provide the perfect conditions for relaxing walks to admire fiery sunsets and stunning views.
