Our final stop on our trip was Lake Garda. We stayed in Macescine on the north east side of the lake. It was a fantastic little town built around a castle on the edge of the lake.
When we set out on foot after checking into our hotel our first stop was to visit and climb the castle and tour the old part of the town.
One evening we ventured out after dinner and with tripod in hand I was able to grab the shot above.
The winds were perfect when we started out and had a great sail for about an hour or so before the winds fizzled out. Later the wind came back on like a freight train which really got the boat moving but it was quite a handful in heavy winds for just the two of us.
On our last full day day in Italy we drove around the lake and visited some of the towns along the way. Our favorite was Sirmione, a little town at the end of a long skinny peninsula on Lake Garda. Sirmione has a beautiful castle and old town as well as some spectacular Roman ruins that we explored.
