Our very first night of our almost 2 week long lasting road trip, we had spent in a parking lot right by the lake, with an avenue of cypresses, a garden with a breathtaking view and olive trees just a little before Lazise.
The next day we woke up early and as we did a little morning walk among the olive trees and cypresses, which were dipped into the golden light of the morning hours, we stumbled upon a lacking sprinkler system. More than happy about “constant water” we quickly turned it into our bathroom lol.
Refreshed and washed we visited the “centro” of Lazise. Free parking spots are rare and parking lots are expensive. Since we didn’t want to spend our time driving around trying to find a cheap or even free parking spot, we ended up parking in the overly expensive parking lot right by the city walls.
The actual historic centre of Lazise, which resides inside the city walls, is pretty small and can be quickly walked through. The rustic charm spread by the tiny alleys, cute old buildings, lovely cafés and restaurants invites to stay longer than just for a few hours.
Without knowing we happened to be there during the market hours. Each day a couple of cities around Lake Garda are the hosts of a market. The locations change from day to day.
When we arrived there Wednesday morning, merchants have set up their tables and turned the whole marine shore into a market.
If you like this area, happen to be travelling there or just generally are interested, stay tuned for the following posts. I will also continue to write about the way we travelled with tips and tricks.
