Discover the lake of Garda

In questi giorni di meritata vacanza, mi sono recata al lago di Garda, non distante da Vicenza, per rilassarmi durante Pasqua e Pasquetta.
Il lago in questione mi piace molto perchè oltre ad essere veramente bello, mi fa respirare un'aria di internazionalità e allo stesso tempo tranquillità (ma non troppa).
Per il soggiorno, mi sono recata a "La corte della rosa- a casa di Franz" (ecco l'indirizzo facebook: ), a Manerba del Garda. Il paese è piccolo, ma carino, con un interessante parco naturalistico/archeologico da visitare.
L'appartamento che ci ha ospitati è bellissimo, e lo consiglio a tutti, sia per un week-end romantico, sia per una breve fuga dalla città con gli amici.
Nel paese di Manerba, che si trova in provincia di Brescia, ho anche cenato al "osteria dai Nani"( dove ho assaggiato un'ottima tagliata di manzo.
Per quanto riguarda il viaggio, ho girato i paesini in macchina, e fortunatamente non ho trovato molto traffico.
Ecco la cartina:

Nel giorno di Pasqua, da Manerba, siamo stati a Salò, graziosa e vivace cittadina, famosa per essere stata il luogo dove Mussolini cercò di rimanere al potere. Ora però camminando nel lungolago e tra le vie del paese, possiamo godercela nella sua attuale veste!
Poi, una veloce visita al centro storico di Gardone, dove sorge il Vittoriale, quella che fu l'ultima dimora di Gabriele D'annunzio. Una vista guidata alla prioria, la casa dove viveva il Vate, è d'obbligo.
In seguito ci siamo spinti verso nord, attraversando una strada piena di gallerie, e siamo arrivati a Limone.

Mi ha colpito molto come in questo luogo, il paesaggio cambi, rispetto al sud del lago. Le montagne si fanno parte integrante del panorama.
Come ultima tappa della giornata, abbiamo fatto un salto in Trantino Alto Adige: abbiamo infatti visitato Riva del Garda, che nonostante il vento (da questa parte del lago, è un abitante illustre anche lui..) mi è piaciuta molto. Vorrei consigliarvi una breve sosta nella libreria che c'è vicino alla piazza centrale: la riconoscerete vende solo volumi antichi!
Oggi, dopo aver visto il parco e la rocca di Manerba, ci siamo avviati verso casa, con due tappe però.
La prima a Desenzano, che mi piace sempre molto (ve la consiglio particolarmente nel periodo natalizio)e la seconda a Sirmione. Quest'ultima era veramente piena di gente, ma ho potuto ammirare per l'ennesima volta il suo castello, proprio all'entrata del centro storico.
Bella mini-vacanza. Spero che il vostro week-end pasquale sia stato altrettanto bello! Kiss.

In these days of well deserved vacation, I went to Lake Garda, not far from Vicenza, to relax during  Easter Sunday and Monday. I really like this lake because is beautiful and makes me breathe an air of international place and at the same time  is full of "peace"(but not too much).
For the vacation , I went to "La corte della rosa-a casa di Franz" (here is the address facebook: della-Rosa/142935962388686), Manerba del Garda. The country is small, but cute, with a park naturalist/ archeology to visit.
The apartment is beautiful , and recommend it to everyone, whether for a romantic weekend, and for a brief escape from the city with friends.
In the town of Manerba, located in the province of Brescia, I also had dinner at the "Osteria dai nani"( where I tasted a good cut of beef.
As for the trip, I turned the villages into the car, and I' didn't found a lot of traffic.
Here's the map:

On Easter Sunday, from Manerba, we were at Salo, a charming and lively town, famous for being the place where Mussolini tried to stay in power. But now near  the lake and walking on the streets of the country, we can enjoy it in its present beuty.
Then, a quick visit to the historic center of Gardone, where stands the Vittoriale, what was the last home of Gabriele D'Annunzio. A guided tour to the priory, the house where the poet lived, is a must.
Then we went north, crossing a street full of galleries, and arrived in Limone.

 I was very impressed as in this place, the landscape changes, compared to the south of the lake. The mountains are part of the landscape.
As a last stop of the day, we jumped in Trantino Alto Adige we have in fact visited Riva del Garda, despite the wind (this side of the lake, is a prominent citizen he too ..) I really liked. I would recommend a short stop in the library that is near the central square: you will recognize because it only sells old books!
Today, after seeing the park and the rock of Manerba, we headed home, with two stages though.
The first in Desenzano, which I always like a lot (I recommend it especially at Christmas time) and the second to Sirmione. It was really crowded, but I could see once again his castle, just near the historical center.
Beautiful mini-vacation. I hope your Easter weekend was just as nice! Kiss.

    If you don't mind, I just have one quick question. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and open up your mind before writing. Recently I just can't get my head clear so that I'm ready to focus on my ideas. I love writing once I get into the act, but usually I feel as if I end up wasting the first ten to fifteen minutes pushing myself to concentrate. Do you have any suggestions or tips?
