Thinking of getting away for the October mid term break? This family holiday in Lake Garda might do the trick!
Lake Garda has scenery, sights, and plenty of style! Relax in its pretty lakeside towns, enjoy thrill rides in GardaLand, or cycle the new bike path that opened last year. I love taking water taxis across the lake and discovering new towns. The nearby city of Verona should also not be missed. Choose a family holiday in Lake Garda and you will be spoilt for choice.
Gardaland is one of the best theme parks in Europe and is a great day out for all the family. I would also recommend a visit to the amphitheatre in Verona, but for more inspiration check out my Lake Garda travel guide.
I have been asked about the average temperatures during October, and while it may not be suitable for sunbathing, hopefully it will be warm. The average day time temperature was 74 degrees last year – see historical weather here.
I found flights from Dublin to Verona on the 28th of October for seven nights for €206 per person with Ryanair. There are many different resorts to choose from but Peschiera is one of the most popular resorts for a family holiday in Lake Garda. It is located in the southern end of the lake within easy reach of Sirmione and Gardaland.
The Residence Garda Palace is located just 10 minutes walk from the town centre of Peschiera, and is rated as Excellent on TripAdvisor. There are a selection of one and two bedroom apartments available. Price for a seven-night stay in a superior two-bedroom apartment is €1273 and these can accommodate up to six.
