First visit to Italian Lakes – Como or Garda?
As per title…
Will be visiting Northern Italy by motorhome with our two kids (10 & 8 ) in April.
Have two days to make the most of a campsite by the water.
We won’t have bikes, so the option to hire nearby would be great.
Otherwise, seem to be loads of motorhome friendly sites, so main decision is about the choice of Lake itself.
Any big advantages / disadvantages of one over the other?
Weather will be a lottery I know.
Thoughts, ideas and suggestions welcome.
Thanks in advance!Posted 2 months agoWorldClassAccidentMember
Top end of Lake Garda in nice. I was there for the first time earlier this year. The south of the lake was V busy. The sides were nice but not much space. The north had more space so bigger towns and more facilities. Water sports and mountains with accommodation and great food in between.Posted 2 months ago

I love Garda (sailing and water sports meca) and as a consequence have only been to Como very briefly on a day trip. April is pretty early too. So I would say check weather and the activities you think you’ll do – definitely bike hire around Garda and the cable car at Malchesine. My impression of Como was that its more of a general tourist spot rather than a “sporting venue”Posted 2 months ago
Cheers all for the input.
Garda it is.
Based on the help here, my thoughts are that if it is pouring with rain, then we’ll not be able to see the beauty of Como, and there will be (relatively speaking), sod all to do.
With Garda, we can at least do something, and if it’s sunny, then I’m sure it is still suitably majestic.
