New Year's Eve on Lake Garda

What are your plans for New Year's Eve? The classic question that every year, sooner or later, torments all of us. Have you ever taken into consideration to spend the evening on Lake Garda?
Oh yes, Lake Garda is a wonderful holiday destination also in December, New Year's Eve included. There are so many options to choose from, that all possible desires can be met.

You can traditionally celebrate in the open air as all main lake towns organize public parties with food stalls, special activities, music and fireworks to welcome the New Year all together.

In Italy, it is typical to hold a big New Year's Eve dinner. If you want to be part of this tradition, there are numerous restaurants for every budget on Lake Garda, offering New Year's Eve menus and entertainment programmes. If this is not enough for you, you can continue in the well-known discos of the lake until early morning.

If you are travelling with children, you could chose to spend a day full of adrenaline and shows at the Gardaland amusement park. From the 8th of December to the 6th of January it turns into Gardaland Magic Winter with Christmas lighting, decorations and themed shows. And those who do not want to forgo the great dinner and celebrations should know that the park closes at 6 pm in winter, meaning you will have enough time to prepare yourselves for the big New Year's Eve party.

And what do you think about the idea to spend the night at a spa? Lake Garda boasts many thermal centres that will make you live an unforgettable evening. At the Caesius Thermae & SPA Resort, for example, the year 2019 will be welcomed in a very spectacular and extravagant way, entering a circus atmosphere with the evening "Le Cirque du Nouvel An" and celebrating until late night.

Who wants to kick off the New Year with a cleansing fresh start, can participate in the traditional New Year Day's swim in Lake Garda. How? Just go to Piazza Tre Novembre in Riva del Garda around 12 am, take your clothes off and take a dip.

So.. what are your plans for New Year's Eve?
