Those traveling with children know how much the advance planning of the activities to be carried out during the holidays is essential to entertain the little ones. That's why today we would like to recommend some destinations to visit during your holiday on Lake Garda with children to enrich your stay and to be able to enjoy all the fun and well-deserved rest. Let's start immediately with the perfect accommodation in which to stay overnight and then move on to the many activities that you can do once you arrive on site.

The best residence for a holiday on Lake Garda with children

We know how important it is to find the right accommodation where to stay during the summer, especially when you have children who are not too old yet. The right accommodation allows everyone to rest properly, relaxing tensions and maintaining that comfort and privacy necessary to be able to better enjoy the moments of fun and the many activities that will take place during the day. Our advice is to rely on Residence Il Molino for your holiday on Lake Garda with children. The complex consists of beautiful private apartments overlooking the Gulf of Manerba and located a few steps from the beach. In addition to the intimacy that each accommodation guarantees, you will find a swimming pool reserved for guests in which you can cool off your children and in which you can immerse yourself during the hottest hours of the day, as long as you don't want to go to the nearby beach.

Each of the private accommodation of the residence has a bathroom with shower, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, living room with TV and a terrace or balcony where you can relax in the evening, to enjoy the sunset after a fun day. To fully experience Lake Garda with children, the right choice is to spend your stay in the Il Molino residence. The structure also has an internal room and an outdoor terrace for breakfasts and snacks, thanks to the always active bar service. In this way your children will be able to recharge their batteries in the morning and afternoon, getting ready to face the many adventures that await you and that you will experience during your stay on the shores of the lake.    

What to do during your holiday on Lake Garda with children

The attractions on the lake are many and many are designed to entertain adults and children at the same time. You can opt for:

● excursions along mountain and woodland trails
● theme amusement parks, such as Gardaland , Movieland and Caneva aquapark
● many beaches to visit that can be easily reached by bicycle    

Trekking and activities during the holiday on Lake Garda with children

The excursion destinations indicated for children are different, today we offer you some simple and fun ones. Let's start from the walk in the valley of the Cartiere in Toscolano-Maderno, a perfect route to take on a holiday on Lake Garda with children and which hosts several attractions, in addition to the beautiful vegetation in which you will be immersed. In fact, you will have the opportunity to visit both the Paper Museum and let your children try their hand at the art of fishing, an activity possible on site. 
Another excursion that we recommend is the one to the Rocca di Garda from where you can admire the view of the lake in all its splendor. The path offers intermediate stops up to the Rocca and our advice is to set out in the morning to be able to enjoy the fresh air and possibly bring a packed lunch with you in case you want to stay longer.

Entertainment and adventure on holiday on Lake Garda with children

We have already mentioned some thematic parts in which you can go to spend a day full of fun with your children. We want to show you two more activities that are perfect for the little ones and that will also allow you to discover the flora and fauna of the Garda area. 

Rimbalzello adventure park 
If your children love to explore and embark on new adventures, the Rimbalzello adventure park is an unmissable stop that you will have to do during your holidays on Lake Garda with children. The park offers suspended paths among the trees at different heights and of different difficulties so as to allow the little ones and adults to live this fantastic experience.
The combination of fun, sport and training in respect of the environment will make this activity the perfect postcard to take home as a souvenir. The park is located in Barbarano di Salò, a few kilometers from the Il Molino residence located in Manerba del Garda. 

Parco Natura Viva 
To spend a day discovering nature and animals, we recommend the splendid zoological garden Parco Natura Viva located in Bussolengo, where you can get to know more than 200 species of animals. The park has always been committed to the safeguarding of endangered species and its visit can be an excellent way to get to know and raise awareness of both adults and children on the importance of living in harmony with nature and with the animals that surround us.

Traveling by bicycle on Lake Garda with children

One of the most frequent questions that families with small children and adolescents ask themselves is how to move from one city or beach to another, without having to use the car. The solution is simpler than you think and is based on the use of the bicycle , which you can easily rent in one of the many bike rentals in Manerba del Garda. Lake Garda is in fact equipped with many cycle paths that overlook its coasts and which will allow you to observe breathtaking landscapes and move easily from one place to another. Moving around Lake Garda with children in this way will be more fun, comfortable and faster and will allow you to stop and explore the many beaches, from Romantica to Baia Bianca. Both are suitable for families with children and offer the possibility to rent sun loungers, deck chairs and canoes or pedal boats for entertainment. In this way you can relax on the beach and then have fun in the water with your children. 
But canoes and pedal boats are not the only activities on site because Lake Garda is one of the most popular destinations for water sports, even for the little ones. You can then decide to entertain your children with one or more of the many activities such as kayaking and sailing, or through a more peaceful but always suggestive boat ride in which you can observe the different shores of the lake and with which you can reach the island of rabbits.

Relax in a holiday on Lake Garda with children

Going on vacation with the whole family should be a relaxing and fun time for everyone, not just your children. Among the places you can visit there is the beautiful Sirmione, a town that hosts dream beaches and the famous sulfur baths. The activities that you can do once you arrive there are many, starting with visiting the city overlooking the lake! Near the city there is also an archaeological site that we recommend you visit, the Grottoes of Catullus, which is the home of the famous Roman poet. The complex is immersed in the Mediterranean nature typical of the area and allows you to see the panorama from a raised position. A suggestive experience that you will not easily forget. To entertain the little ones, it is possible to visit the Archaeological Museum with a path that shows the finds of the villa and explains the formation of Lake Garda from prehistoric times to the Roman age. We also recommend a visit to the natural caves and the Scaligero Castle, always located near the city. A perfect afternoon destination for your family. To allow yourself some well-deserved relaxation during your holiday on Lake Garda with children, you can then go to the famous Terme di Sirmione, to spend a day of relaxation and well-being with the whole family. The spa will help you reconnect body and mind and eliminate accumulated stress, an excellent gift for you during your holiday on Lake Garda with children.

Holiday on Lake Garda: what to do if it rains?

During the holidays it can happen that there are days with rain and bad weather. Don't worry, because Lake Garda offers many indoor activities to do with your children. You can say goodbye to boredom, the children will have a lot of fun and it will be a wonderful experience for you too. Among the destinations that we recommend for the cloudiest days there is: 

Gardaland Sea Life Aquarium, the wonderful interactive aquarium with 40 tanks that will lead you to discover the marine creatures of the lake, the sea and the oceans 

● Mu.Sa, or rather the modern and contemporary art museum of Salò, with its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions that will let you discover many artists from all over the world 

● Medieval Times for a unique dinner and show experience with medieval knights, an original way to spend rainy evenings 

● the Vittoriale, with its spectacular rooms and the guided tour of the building to discover d'Annunzio's house 

● The Valtenesi Civic Archaeological Museum, located near the Rocca di Manerba, which will take you on a discovery of artifacts found in the area 

Even on the rainiest day, you won't have to worry about finding activities to keep your children entertained. 

Furthermore, we remind you that inside the Il Molino residence Wi - Fi is present throughout the building and in the private apartments.
