Weather in Lake Garda
The Garda area boasts all the characteristics of a “pre-alpine zero-thermal oasis”. It is a sub-Mediterranean climate, so mild and different from the other lakes that it can be defined as the “Benaco climate”. The average winter temperature varies between 12° and 18°C and in summer between 24° and 30°C.
