The biggest lake in Italy (360 square Km and 52 km in length). As all of the prealpine lakes, lake garda is glacial, i.e. formed by the powerful action of moving lglaciers, that came down from the Alps to the Po Plain in the Quaternary age. It‚€s fed by the Sarca river, which flows from the glaciers of Adamello and Presanella. Lake Garda has been written about by great poets like Kante, Carducci, Catullo for its beauty and admired by important visitors such as J.W Goethe and Montaigne.
