Travel Blogs from Desenzano Del Garda
12/12/2012 - Today we left Florence to head up to the northern lakes area and Desenzano la Garda.
We had a great time in Florence, but time to move on. We've visited the
lakes area previously (Lakes Como and Maggiore), so this time we thought we'd go to the biggest of the lakes, Lake Garda. Our previous visits have revealed lakes of clear …
We are currently in Venice. A few of us are waiting for our pizza/ pasta to arrive for lunch. Authentic Italian lunch :) This morning we went to a glass blowing demo, and then shopped for glass. After that we toured the crazy alleys of Venice, then went and toured the canals on gondolas. After lunch we're going to the Doge's palace before free ...
On our way to Venice we stopped in Verona, the place where Romeo and Juliet is set. We saw Juliet's balcony, toured a bit of the town and had some free time. Some people went into the arena that that was built 2000 years ago. Others used their time to get some gelato and do a bit of shopping. We at staying at the Hotel Bolivar in ...
... The main reason we went was to see all the display details and interior design that was done by Carlo Scarpa. Although I can't complain at all about Verona I do have to rank it my #6th favorite city out of 6. After sketching at the museum, we got back on the bus and drove to Vicenza.
... by the Museo civico de storia naturale ( which consisted solely of hundreds of fake animals – not a great museum by any stretch) and lastly the Castelvecchio (Medieval castle- got to walk around and see the art displays, weapon displays and the castle itself) - my favourite part of the day.
For dinner I ate at a restaurant that was highly recommended by the staff at the B&B. They said it was a restaurant that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Rosa Hotel Desenzano Del Garda
Hotel Villa Rosa - 'excellent'
We stayed for a week at Villa Rosa from 21st to 28th July 2007 and loved every minute. We cannot give a bad report about the hotel at all. Modern, very clean, (linen and towels changed every day) and very helpful staff. We paid for a junior suite with a balcony overlooking the lake and were chuffed to bits! Even the small pool never got over-crowded and we travelled peak holiday time. Breakfast was great and you can eat at the poolside at lunch time if you like although it's so close to the town, you don't really need to. Definitely recommended (for couples or families) and definitely going back!
We stayed at the Villarosa hotel in Desenzano last weekend (Fri to Tuesday) July 07.
Siamo stati all'Hotel Villarosa di Desenzano lo scorso fine settimana, da venerdì a martedì - è il luglio 2007. Avevamo prenotato hotel, volo e auto a noleggio su internet separatamente, risparmiando un sacco di soldi. Siamo davvero rimasti piacevolmente sorpresi dal livello dell'hotel e dalla sua posizione. Si trova proprio sul lago, a soli 5 minuti dal centro, dove troverete tantissimi antichi palazzi italiani con i loro balconi adornati e ristoranti che servono ottimo cibo in un'atmosfera di relax. I prezzi erano inoltre molto più convenienti di quanto ci saremmo aspettati per il Lago di Garda. Un buon pasto per due con una bottiglia di vino ci è costato circa 40 euro ben spesi. Potrete raggiungere Venezia in auto con l'autostrada A4. Impiegherete circa 2 ore, a seconda del traffico. Badate però che le autostrade non sono gratuite in Italia. Potrete pagare il pedaggio in contanti o con la carta di credito, l'importante è incolonnarvi nella corsia giusta. Tutto considerato, abbiamo trascorso un fine settimana lungo fantastico e non vediamo l'ora di ritornare!
Wir waren vergangenes Wochenende (Freitag bis Dienstag - Juli 2007) im Villa Rosa Hotel in Desenzano.
Schönes Hotel !!!
Schönes Hotel mit nettem Personal. Super schön war das hervorragende Frühstück im Freien mit Blick auf den Gardasee. Wir haben dort nur eine Nacht verbracht, aber man kann es dort auch gut länger aushalten. Gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis.
Wir waren drei Paare, die zusammen reisten, und riskierten es, in diesem vor kurzem renovierten Hotel zu buchen, denn es gab seit der Neueröffnung im vergangenen April (glaube ich) noch keine Bewertungen. Es gefiel uns sehr gut hier. Die Zimmer waren modern--die Betten bequem. Schwimmbad und umliegendes Gelände waren sehr nett. Es ist ein 'grünes' Hotel, d.h. Ihre Schlüsselkarte wird in einen Schlitz innerhalb Ihres Zimmers eingesteckt, damit die Lichter und der Fernseher angeschaltet bleiben. Jedes Zimmer hat Balkon, Minikühlschrank, nettes Badezimmer und Flachschirmfernseher. Frühstück ist recht gut - es wird von 7 Uhr bis 10 Uhr morgens serviert: Käsesorten, Schinkenarten, Yoghurt, Getreideflocken, Eier zum Kochen, viele süße Sachen, Säfte und eine tolle Kaffeemaschine! Das Hotel hat eine sehr hübsche Terasse/Veranda auf der Seeseite, mit Tischen und Stühlen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Man kann kostenlos im Freien parken oder für 5 Euros pro Tag in der Untergrundgarage. Das Hotel ist nur durch eine enge Straße vom See getrennt. Es gibt viele Restaurants und Läden, zu denen man ohne Problem zu Fuß gehen kann. Wir waren sehr gerne hier.
Travelling with 2 other couples, we took a chance on this recently renovated hotel (there had yet to be any reviews written as the hotel reopened, I believe, just last April). It was very nice. the rooms were modern--beds comfortable. The pool and area around it were very pleasant. It's a "green" hotel and your hotel key card gets inserted into a slot inside your room in order to keep the lights and tv on. Rooms all have balconies, mini fridges, nice bathrooms and flat screen tvs. The breakfast was quite good--served from 7:00 to 10:00--cheeses, hams, yogurt, cereals, eggs to cook, lots of sweets, juices, and a great coffee machine! There is a very nice terrace/porch facing the lake with tables and chairs. The staff was very pleasant--the outdoor parking is free--or you can park in the underground garage for 5 Euros a day. The lake is right across the narrow street; there are lots of restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Stylish modern hotel
Stayed at the newly modernised Villa Rosa for one week, good location in fashionable Desenzano,loads of great places to eat espiecially Al Fattore .Good for couples, very clean , nice pool, air-con rooms, car parking , one down side we had to pay for the pool towel so........ BYO!! Everything you would expect form a 4* hotel
A pleasant and quiet place in March
Stayed in the Villa Rosa with my sister for two nights (19-20 March 2005). The hotel is, like everything around Lake Garda, is trapped in the early 80's. Accordingly, decor is a little lacking (neon-blue theme has never been in) but the high ceilings and balcony were nice.
Hotel is clean, safe, quiet, right across the Lungalo street from the lake, and just a five minute walk from the center of town. The breakfast buffet is heavy on the sugary biscuit side and needs imporvement, but there is free internet in the lobby as a consolation prize.
For what we got, the hotel seemed a bit pricey to me, but its staff was always friendly and helpful (even printing off train sceduales). No serious complaints.
