Villa Antonia is well-situated for sight-seers. All the lakeside towns, from Desenzano in the south to Riva in the north are very attractive and have many points of historic, cultural or scenic interest. You can enjoy a stroll along the promenade and a cappuccino outside a sunny lakeside café almost anywhere. There are many restaurants boasting lake fish and traditional local cuisine as well as pizza and ice cream. Most towns are served by summer boat services, or you can hire your own motorboat. There is also sailing, diving and windsurfing.
Since the upper part of the lake signals the beginning of the Alps, you can also enjoy some refreshing mountain walks or a cable car trip up the mighty Monte Baldo for the highest lake view of all. Verona, a beautiful and historic city with good shopping, is just 40 minutes away by car or train. The internationally famous opera festival takes place here in the Roman Arena for most of the summer. In addition, you can make daytrips by car or train to Milan, Venice, Vicenza or Padua from the easily-reached Desenzano station or the A4 motorway junction at the south end of the lake.
