Bmw one of the best road on garda lake
Strada della Forra is one of the most scenic drives in the world. This Italian road burrows its way through the mountain in the ravine formed by the river Brasa. A small car with functioning horn is recommended. For the skilled drivers only. This legendary road is located in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy, on the shore of Lake Garda, in Italy. It links Tremosine with the districts of Pieve and Vesio. It’s a real gem, nestled in the depths of the mountain, along the rift carved by the river Brasa. Avalanches and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road.The road, officially known as SP38 was inaugurated in 1913. A small car with functioning horn is recommended. Winston Churchill defined it as the eighth wonder of the world. The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. A quick glance at the map, at its sheer drops and serpentine twists and turns, confirms that this is no hype. For the skilled drivers only. Quite challenging but definitely worth it. It was also set for a little part of James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace”.
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. This video explores some of the beautiful lakeside towns including Malescine, Limone and Riva del Garda.
Whilst on holiday in Lake Garda / Lago di Garda/ Gardasee, we drove to the little town of Malcesine to explore the lakeside and walk through its picturesque streets. After stopping by for an obligatory gelato ice cream at Cento per Cento (delicious!), we headed for the cable car / funicular station ("Funivia"), to see the view from Monte Baldo aka Mount Baldo; a little mountain nearby that has great views over the whole lake and surrounding green Italian mountainous countryside / mountainside. I hope you enjoy seeing this little snippet from our holidays to Lake Garda! - - - Music Credits: Avocado Street by Wes Hutchinson Modus Operandi (MO) by Wes Hutchinson
Edited video and still images from my vacation in Malcesine, Lake Garda in August 2013, staying at the wonderful Hotel Vega. I'd highly recommend Malcesine as a lovely picturesque town to stay in, relax and explore. It has bags of character and plenty to do, but is also a useful base, at the more Northern end of the Lake, so access to Limone, Torbole and Riva is easy using the passenger ferry. Food is excellent wherever you go in Italy. The day trip to Venice was a must, however due to the searing heat and endless streams of tourists (I know I was part of the problem!) it was difficult to enjoy at the time, but now looking back at my footage of the Gondola ride I'm quite enjoying it more now in retrospect. The day trip to Bolzano and Renon was really pleasant; a 2 hour easy coach ride to Bolzano, a pretty town with attractive, colourful buildings and great cable car ride into the mountains where we completed the rest of the climb by tram. Renon gave us great views across the mountains (I think The Dolomites were visible in the background), and some very interesting 'earth pyramids'. The tandem paragliding was great and not half as scary as I'd imagined.
