Gardaland is the best and largest theme park in Italy. There are many rides which have contributed to its success including: a journey amongst the pharaohs in "Valley of Kings" and a trip round a pirate village in "The Buccaneers" You can also visit the "Village of the Elves" and venture through the uncultivated jungle. However, the best rides are aimed at the bravest visitors: start with a terrifying free-fall from a height of 40 meters in "Space Vertigo", then wander through a Russian mountain range in "Blue Tornado" and finally explore some more traditional mountains in 'Magic Mountain'. There are hundreds of other attractions as well as live shows. The park which has been carefully put together, right down to the finishing touches, is also houses a number of restaurants and gift shops. Note that hours vary according to the season.
The Giardino Giusti contains all the features of a typical Renaissance garden: geometrical layout of flowerbeds and hedgerows, fountains, grottos, mask, mythological statues, avenues of cypresses and a maze. Mozart, Goethe, kings and emperors have all visited this garden, which, for four centuries has been one of the most beautiful and well-visited in the whole of the Veneto. The garden, designed by Agostino Giusti as a setting for the villa which bears his name, is made up of three sections: a lawn, a wooded hill with a ravine and cliff and landscaped terraces with a belvedere.
Caneva Aquapark is probably one of the most adventurous Italian water parks in the state. Amongst its many advantages is also that of being less well known, and therefore less crowded than other parks. The evocative setting of a 19th-century Caribbean village is a perfect surrounding for a water park with thousands of attractions, where trees and decorative structures are so dense as almost to block the view of the slides until you are very close. Some of these slides are only to be found here, not in the rest of Italy: the double 'Black Hole' that runs completely underground, which you travel through on a rubber tire, and the frightening 'Stukas', high and steep enough to frighten anyone. There are also more well known attractions like the 'Anaconda' or the brilliant 'Water Jump'.
Set against a backdrop of towering mountains, the turquoise and sapphire blue waters of Lake Garda form Italy's largest freshwater lake. The lake lies in northeast Italy, about half-way between Verona and Brescia, hemmed by the lofty castles, glistening domes and red roofs of several cities and small towns. A number of popular attractions lie along the shores of Lake Garda, the most notable of which is perhaps the Scaliger Castle in the city of Sirmione. Lake Garda is also a popular choice for watersports like kiteboarding, windsurfing and sailing, while its sprawling, mountainous surrounds are ideal for hiking. Several trails riddle the foothills just off the shores of Lake Garda.
