Getting to Bardolino - Travel Information
Bardolino is situated on the south-eastern shore of Lake Garda and has very easy access to the north-south motorway route between Austria and Verona (and thus to the Milan-Venice motorway as well) plus, of course, it is well within reach of a variety of airports.
Travel by Car
Those heading to Bardolino from the south and west are advised to use the A4/E70 motorway which stretches from Venice to Milan. The exit for Bardolino - actually it is the one for Peschiera - is situated to the east of the turn-offs for Verona - the route then follows the coast past Lazise to Bardolino. An alternate route for those arriving from the south is to take the motorway past the Verona junction north to the Affi turn-off.
Drivers coming from the north have the option of taking the scenic route to the north of Lake Garda and then the long tour down the lakeshore on the east (definitely not recommended in anything approaching busy periods or for those without time on their hands).
Alternatively, they can stay on the motorway as long as possible - taking the A22/E45 from the Austrian border down to the junction at Affi (also the exit for Garda) and then using the country roads through to Bardolino.
This is also the most promising route (although approaching the exit from the south) for those heading from the east, who should take the route to the north and Austria after the exits for Verona and then leave the motorway at the Affi junction.
Milan 192km - northeast to Bergamo and then past Brescia to the motorway exit at Peschiera
Venice 155km - past Padua, Vicenza and Verona to the motorway exit at Affi
Verona 30km - either on the motorway to Affi or on country roads to Lazise and north along the lakeside
