Directions to Gargnano

Those arriving by plane will most likely be landing in either Milan or Verona. Please use this link for information about getting from Milan or Verona to Gargnano by public transport:

Coming from Verona by rental car, one of the easiest and prettiest ways to arrive is by using the car ferry from Torri del Benaco to Toscolano - Maderno;  the drive north along the western edge of the lake from Toscolano - Maderno to Gargnano is quite lovely and takes less than 30 minutes. 

The following information on car-ferries in June 2014 will be updated once the summer 2014 schedules are posted, but it will give you an idea how frequently they operate:



Besides the vast range of ferryboat connections for passengers, the Navigarda also offers two interesting possibilities to bring also your car to the other side of the lake in a very easy and stress-free way. As the spaces for cars are limited, it is recommended to show up at the port well before the ferry is leaving (in June, 30 minutes should be sufficient).
