A weekend in Torbole

The alarm clock rings late, you are relaxed, the apartment is comfortable, the sun shines…

Where are you? At Lake Garda. During the weekend in Torbole, there are thousands of things to see. Get up and visit this fascinating lake resort.

While you decide if diving into the swimming pool of our Residence Toblini, one the fewest ones with a garden and an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, it is already time to put your shoes on and go and visit Torbole sul Garda. It is time to live an unforgettable weekend.

What to do, then? So many things.

The old centre of Torbole sul Garda is full of history. Here, the famous German poet Goethe used to live – a commemorative plaque in the central square reminds him and the house where he lived. The breath-taking views, the narrow alleys and the luxuriant nature were a great source of inspiration to him.

After a weekend in Torbole at Lake Garda you will say “I’ll be back soon!”, especially if you are in love or a bike-addicted or a hardened sailor!

Well, Torbole is the perfect destination for water sports enthusiasts! Thanks to its position, Torbole enjoys a fantastic wind and has become a famous international sailing and windsurfing resort. If you are spending your weekend in Torbole sul Garda, you must make a windsurfing experience or go for a sailboat trip or the quiet pace of the SUP.

TREKKING ROUTES AND TRIPS OUT OF TOWN

Torbole is also a paradise for walking lovers! Busatte-Tempesta, Ponale, the lakefront promenade… if you like going for a trek or for easy walks, Torbole is the place to be.

GOOD FOOD AND AMAZING LAKEFRONT HAPPY HOURS

Ready to taste some good food in Torbole? In spring, in summer, in autumn and even in winter: every season is perfect to spend a food&drink weekend in Torbole!

Many lakefront restaurants welcome you and your partner for a dinner with a view. Otherwise trattorias, inns and pubs. Our tip: try the Broccolo di Torbole! If it is not the broccoli season, you can taste the broccoli sauce, pesto or pâté in one of the eateries.

Take a pic to remember your weekend in Torbole at Lake Garda. In front of the former customhouse or of Casa Beust, or in front of Goethe’s statue or sitting on a bench, in front of the lake, at sunset.

Torbole worths a weekend. Book now your apartment with swimming pool in Torbole and live your dream holiday. The beauty of Lake Garda will get closer!

The Busatte – Tempesta path

Busatte Tempesta

387 steps, a breathtaking view, a thick vegetation among blue, sky and stones. Where are you? You are treading the Busatte – Tempesta path! A path for those who are not afraid of heights, but rather love them as well as the garish colours of the unspoiled nature. Opened in 2005, this wonderful 4-km semi-flat path passes over two ridges: Corno di Bò and Salt de la Cavra. It is the ideal choice for those who love to walk in order to work out heart, mind and soul overlooking the biggest lake in Italy.

The Busatte – Tempesta path

STARTING POINT

You leave from the Busatte parking lot where the slightly-sloping path starts among trees (mainly Holm oaks) that are about to shed in this period, turning the route yellow. In autumn, this path is perfect because it is low and so you don’t run the risk to be cold; the mild temperatures and the still shining sun make it rather enjoyable despite the physical effort on the three stairways. Nevertheless, families with kids can also take on this adventurous walk because the route is undemanding and also marked.

Because of the steps it isn’t suitable for buggies, but the little ones could enjoy the fabolous view in any case, maybe in dad’s backpack (mums will relax their shoulders at least this time!!). You will cross many highly-panoramic spots with benches from where to take pictures (it is in fact one of the most suitable paths for photography enthusiasts!) or to rest if you need to. But we are stoical and… we keep on going on our path!

JUMPING OFF THE EDGE: THE 400 STEPS

Let’s brave our first descending stairway now. A green metal structure that enables you to cross the rocky parts along the path. A feeling of vertigo starts to seize us! It seems like walking among the rocks hanging on the lake. A thrilling emotion for those of us who challenge the heights with a bit of fear. But it’s known that fears are made to be suppressed. And so, let’s go on to brave other two stairways.

Perfect training for both buttocks and legs, if carried on with a fast pace it’s a route that can be trodden in one hour and a half round. If you rather prefer to walk enjoying the view, it will take you one hour and a half to go from Busatte to Tempesta (just one way, though)! (Here you can see some pictures!). You can also choose to come back by bus (but we won’t do it, will we?!) or to cover the same path challenging the about 400 steps, but ascending this time!!

SUGGESTIONS

It’s not necessary any specific clothes, but the suggestion is to be careful with the steps that could be slippery during autumn. If you have some hiking shoes, use them, otherwise also sneakers will be fine. My hint? Carry a lot of water with you! Along the path there aren’t any fountains and the only bar (well-equipped and surrounded by trees) is exactly at the starting point, Busatte.

Once back with our backpack on the shoulders, we feel our head light, our heart full of goodwill thanks to the beauty around us and in the small simple things of life. Things like a hiking day on the Busatte – Tempesta path, a bear hug closely connected with mother nature.

Easter is just round the corner. Spending Easter time in Torbole on Lake Garda gets you the perfect chance to discover a place that gives its best during springtime, getting all the hints of mother nature!

Easter is also the period when, after a long cold winter, everybody has an overwhelming desire of staying in the open air, enjoying the first sunbeams warming your skin. Clean and frizzy aired woods, beaches getting ready for the summer with a crisp wind that ruffles your hair, challenging hiking trails that are less arduous in spring thanks to mild temperatures. There are a lot of activities you could find out (for the first time or again) during the Easter weekend. Here you three five suggestions you can’t definitely miss out

1 Easter lunch at Rifugio San Pietro. You piggy! I can almost hear you choosing for the place to eat a tasty festive lunch! If you’d like a typical meal, you could choose to spend the Easter lunch in a mountain hut! The walk into the woods before and after the meal will even cinch you to burn off some calories! More specifically, Rifugio San Pietro is within easy reach by a pleasant 10-minute walk, and offers a wonderful view on North Lake Garda. Here you could taste some genuine Trentino food, with traditional dishes that will leave you with a full belly and…. a gratified view!

2 Trekking on Easter. A compulsive classic! The day trip on Easter with your friends or family. There are stacks of places where spending Easter around Torbole on Lake Garda. Here you have some of them, let’s start with Busatte-Tempesta Path with its 389 steps! From here the landscape of Torbole and the whole Lake Garda will leave you without breathe!

Lake Tenno as the first of all. A little body of emerald green freshwater, nestled in a lush nature within an easy reach walking up some stairs.
A handy parking lot just above the stairs and near restaurants and bars make it the ultimate destination also for families with toddlers, for an Easter picnic surrounded by nature! If you like green lawns and castles, you can’t avoid spending your Easter Monday on the Prato della Lizza at the top of Arco castle. A proper lush “balcony” overlooking all the Garda Trentino area. Here, the little ones can play on the field while mum and dad enjoy the view eating their picnic. Lastly, a classic: go picnicking on the beach in Torbole on Lake Garda.
 
A fabulous green lawn or massaging pebbles under your back, a bottle of good Trentino wine, some delicacies cooked with your own hands (well, actually there are many delectable eating facilities here around!!) and a nice foulard for the ladies! Why? Because the Ora, the Garda Trentino wind par excellence blows strongly in spring, and being the temperature not so warm, it could be too cold. Our suggestion is to wear some suitable clothes to enjoy the beach day at the outside.

Ferry tripA different and amazing way to visit Garda Trentino is… travelling by ferryboat! Hydrofoils, ferries and other boats are waiting for you equipped with bars, restaurants, lift and other amenities, for a trip out that will take you to both lake shores having a field day!

These are our three suggestions to spend Easter in Garda Trentino. Many other Itineraries are waiting for you, many strolls, outdoor sports, worth-visiting churches, restaurants where tasting local delicacies. And if the weather is not so good, don’t pay attention to it once in a lifetime.

Have you ever seen the lake changing its colour just before the rain? The stillness, the pouring rain that gently falls down on the newly green leaves after winter. And then, the sun immediately appears. Because here in Garda Trentino, the Mediterranean climate makes the good weather switch back in a while.
