Thanks to the navigation lines that connect the most important lakeside towns tourists can move in a relaxing and pleasant way while admiring the beauty of Lake Garda.
The ferry service is a public service of the Ministry of Transport that has been active since 1827. Who wants to travel rapidly, can use a hydrofoil or catamaran.
Who prefers enjoying the peace of the Lake you can take the slower pleasure boats.
It is possible to go from Desenzano to Peschiera del Garda, or to use the car ferry between Maderno and Torri del Benaco throughout the year and between Limone and Malcesine in summertime. It is even possible to hire a pleasure boat for an unforgettable cruise by day or night, for parties, meetings and weddings. The most notable vessels that offering their navigation service on the lake, are the former steamships Italia (capacity of 600 people) and Zanardelli (500 people), the modern motorships Tonale and Brenner (1000 people) and the car ferry Brescia (700 people).
