Is Torri a good base for exploring lake Garda?

Hello,

I’ve been researching affordable accommodation for a lake Garda holiday this September and have found a lovely self catered apartment in Torri with views over the lake and the price is very reasonable.

Is this a good area to stay? We’re planning on hiring a car so we can explore a bit but we love walks, great food, peace and quiet and we’d love to paddle board on the lake too.

If there are better affordable locations where we would get a lake view please let me know.

Thank you!

Torri is a pretty smaller town and with a car you could easily get around the lake. You can walk along the lakeside, next to the road, for as long as you want to the north but it is quite a long walk to the first town. You can also walk to Garda to the south, though not on the lakeside. You do need to check carefully where the apartment is, often they are quite a way out of town up the hillside.

Torri is a good base as long as you have a car as it doesn't have a good passenger ferry service.

There is, however, a car ferry that crosses the lake from Torri to Maderno which gives you easy access to the western shore of the lake.

The other car ferry during the summer is between Malcesine and Limone:
