Beautiful Limone

Great trip across the Lake, Limone very pictutesque, lots of places to eat and drink and some gorgeous shops! Not sunny later in the day due to its position on the Lake.

I took the ferry for a day out from Riva Del Garda and visited few v towns along the way including Malcesine, Limone and Tobole. It is the best way to enjoy the lake and see the ports on Hop on and Hop Off basis. I was able to do my shopping and sampling few restaurants along the way

We took the boat from Malcesine to Limone 9€ return. It is a 20 minute crossing. We decided to go over on Tuesday which is Market day in Limone. It was nothing special.... The town itself is very pretty .

We took the ferry to both Limone and Riva. Limone is very quaint with a picturesque harbour and narrow streets. Can be a bit crowded in the season but worth the visit. Riva is much larger with beautiful parks along the lake edge. There are some good walks in the area

Although I had read about Limone as one of the most beautiful towns on Lake Garda, I was very disappointed once I visited. Village is overcrowded with tourist and loaded with tacky tourist shops lining the walkways from the ferry. Sorry I went and would discourage anyone from visiting. We left as soon as we could to return to charming... More

We took a boat from Malcesine to Limone, and all went well. Inside the boat was warm and from the front seats we were able to enjoy views, in returntrip we were in outside deck and this was nice too. The travel time was ok and service nice too!

A fast and efficient ferry that mostly does what it says. Occasionally they might miss a crossing (to our puzzlement) but eventually we were picked up and we were the better for some extra time in Limone

An excellent way to whizz up and down the lake to see other points of interest. Offers a good service, even in late October the time of our visit, and cleanly surroundings

You can take a tour of the North lake where the ferry leaves Malcesine and stops at Limone, Torbole and Riva. Ferries are clean and very punctual. Not much more you can say really.

When we arrived on 19/10/16 that week they had reduced the crossings to various parts of Lake Garda which had some what spoilt out plans to adventure around the lake . We wanted to visit Sirmilone but the service there had now ceased due to seasonal demands , which at weekends I find hard to believe. We went to limone... More
