An exciting alternative for children is Giocabosco Park. Families can experience magical adventures with fairies and elves, bringing them closer to the natural beauty of the forest.
Easter traditions around Lake Garda
There are many traditions and customs when you celebrate Easter at Lake Garda. During your holiday, you can get to know them and celebrate with the locals. In Tremosine, for example, every year on Easter Sunday, the traditional "S-ciapì" festival is celebrated on the square in the historical centre of the Pieve district. It's an ancient, folk custom, where hard-boiled eggs decorated with natural colours of herbs and barks take centre stage. It's a game, and the aim is to hit your coloured egg against your opponent's egg in such a way that your opponent's egg gets destroyed, but your egg remains intact. The winner then gets the Easter egg of his opponent and can eat it with gusto.
The spring folk festival at Lake Garda also entertains you with a diverse programme for the whole family, with live music, culinary highlights and a happy atmosphere!
