11. Lago di Garda
Lake Garda, besides being the largest lake in Italy, also has a rich historical past as the town and other regions surrounding it were once ruled by Lombards, Romans and Venetians. Their presence can be traced from the existence of exotic Roman villas, baths and cathedrals that dot the region. The lake offers a picturesque view of the surrounding landscape and is also home to many Bronze Age rock paintings.
