... apparently free to do whatever they want to do on the Disney cruise, seems they think they set their own release conditions.
With the sun finally gone the water started to bubble up onto the Piazza, Max and Emerson started playing maroon between the forming puddles to see which of them could leave the other one marooned on the either side of the growing puddles. With the water rising up we passed a photo shoot set up to capture girls playing in the puddles under the ...
What a lovely place, oozing architecture and old Venetian style - it was lovely! We drove, it took around 40 mins and headed straight into the tourist area. Parking was limited & after asking (we didn't want another tow truck!) a helpful couple on their moped showed us where to park in the centre. We were right next to the street where it is said that Juliet's balcony is (although I gather the balcony was built in the ...
... but it is still based on legend. So in reality, that is no more Juliet's balcony than just another beautiful old building but it doesn't stop the millions of tourists who all want to believe in love. Having missed my train the day before I had to reschedule my walking tour/wine tasting for Thursday evening. I spent the entire day walking around the city seeing the masses of tourists being led around ...
... and an incredible use of the wider spaces of the Arena (including beyond the stage and into the Arena seats) throughout the performance. During the regular intervals, ragazzi roamed our cheap seats plying the punters with 'birra, vini bianchi and vini rossi'. The Romans know how to do stuff. All this was great. Now we would be exaggerating if we told you that we had much of a clue about what was happening for most of the time, and ...
We were very uncertain about the weather as we set off to pick up our yatch. The drive along the lake was very pretty and we arrived at the port around 10.00am and it was quite windy.... The staff told us that this was normal and in an hour it would be calm.... After a coffee we drove up the lake, even more pretty and watched some amazing high wind sailing by the dinghy and kite and windsurfers. Have ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Admiral Hotel Villa Erme Desenzano Del Garda
The hotel erme was one we picked because of its location on the lake, its relative closeness to the Brescia Airport and the reviews on this website.
Booked this hotel because of the other reviews on Trip Advisor and we were really glad we used the advice. The rooms are beautifully furnished and absolutely spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are superb and they even have the power showers with full body jets (great fun!!). Although the hotel is a little outside Desenzano this wasn't a problem because the hotel has bikes which you can hire free of charge for up to 3 hours which are great to explore the surrounding area. There are restaurants, shops and bars in the local area, especially good was the Pizzaria on the corner. Certainly on of the best hotels we stayed in whilst travelling aroung Italy.
If you are looking for a comfortable , friendly and well run hotel from which to explore the Lake Garda region then this is it. Whilst the bedrooms are perhaps a bit dull due to the maroon coloured traditional curtains and bedspreads etc they are otherwise spotlessly clean with laminated flooring and nice sized marble tiled bathrooms with shower only ( no bath ). Breakfasts are more than adequate with a good selection of fruits, cereals, meats ,cheeses , breads etc. We specially requested some bran cereals which were on the buffet the next morning ! The hotel has good on site parking which makes it an ideal place from which to explore by car and a nice cozy rooftop terrace and jacuzzi for some sun and relaxation. A free laptop PC connection is available for guests in the lobby where the lovely Beatrice and her staff could not be more attentive and friendly with good advice for local tours, visits etc. This is a good quality 3 star hotel which we would strongly recommend.
Bit out of town - 30 mins walk. Across a busy road from lake. Room nice hotel generally clean and high standard. Fitness equipment poor. Pool not heated and much too cold to use (in April). Food overpriced (but Rossi & Rossi pizzeria next door is excellent value and very friendly - turn right out of entrance and on the next corner).
We spent a couple of days in this hotel at the south western area of Lago di Garda a few weeks ago. The premises are beautiful, spotless, with state-of-the-art appliances. It is built upon an old villa, but it has been refurbished so that it looks brand new and stylish at the same time. Buffet breakfast was excellent, and the staff was friendly and useful. Prices were very reasonable.
Fantastic start to our Lake Garda Tour
I booked this hotel initially as it was close to where the Ryanair bus drops you off rather than a lengthy journey all on the first day. The photos and feedback looked promising but the reality is even better. Whilst the freshness and cleanliness gives the hotel a modern feel there is so much character throughout the hotel. The facilities are such that you don't want to leave the hotel to explore but if you do bicycles are offered by reception. We did walk into Desenzano Del Garda with our wheeled suitcases so if you are fit or want to become so, do it, its a lovely walk.
The breakfast was good and extremely varied.
We would definately stay again on our next visit to the area.
Just Wonderful - excellent value
What a delightful hotel! On our travels through Italy in September 2004 this hotel was by far the best of the six we had booked online - and the cheapest. I have trouble with lifts but my problem was dealt with courteously and speedily. Being a small hotel it keeps the 'cosy' imagine.
We shall be returning soon. Just want to sit on the balcony, have breakfast then stroll down to the locale to spend some time. I could fault nothing in this hotel and as a hotelier myself I am most critical of other businesses.
My family and I stayed in the Admiral Hotel for a week in mid July 2004. We found the staff to be unfailingly pleasant, the rooms spotless, well maintained and effectively air-conditioned. The hotel pool, solarium and other facilities were good while breakfast was varied and very good. We ate dinner once in the hotel during our stay and felt that (notwithstanding the competitive pricing), the menu was very limited.
Lovely hotel in great position near Lake Garda. The rooms were a good size, extremely clean and well equiped. The continental breakfasts were wonderful but the dinners a little disappointing but good value for money at 15 Euros for 3 courses. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were super.Staff extremely helpfull. Secure free car parking.
Much more than I expected
Great value for money!. The hotel is in a perfect location, close to the Garda Lake. In spite of the hotel is not big, facilities are superb. Ask for the open air spa at the reception desk or the saturday night menu. The friendly staff provides a very good service. When you book a double room, ask for the 215. It is not facing to the lake, but you will enjoy at the balcony. We enjoyed here for 5 days during March 2004 and I will definitely stay here again.
