Our ferry departed Sirmione port at 10.55, arriving across the lake at Bardolino exactly 40 minutes later. We walked from Bardolino to Garda along the seashore, "Passeggiata Riva Lunga" almost all on good pavement surface, and flat. Passing little "beaches" of pebbles, many bars and snack shops, seats to stop and relax and enjoy the view, flowers, trees, Magnolias, swans, ducks, camping sites, families enjoyng their day at the beach, olive trees, pine trees,. Not rushing, with a few stops, the walk took about 50 minutes to arrive at Garda.
Excellent Bus terminal information, not far from the port. Bus to the mountains to escape the heat to San Zeno di Montagne, where there were approximately 4 tourists.
Back to home base of Sirmione on the last ferry at 7.15pm.
