Garda is a lake of glacial origin, surrounded by two mountain chains: in the east lies Monte Baldo and in the west is the pre-Alpine territory, shared by Lombardy, Veneto on its eastern shore with countless Mediterranean flora and Trentino in the northern tip, where the lake looks like a fjord between the Baldo and the Ledrenian Alps. Sarca is the main tributary of the lake, it enters between Riva and Torbole the waters coming from the glaciers of the Adamello and Lake Nambino. The only emissary is the river Mincio that comes out near Peschiera with three canals. From the mountain around the lake sprawl a considerable variety of winds, the most famous are the “Sover” or “Maestro”, “Ander” then “L’Ora”, in addition to “Vanessa” and “Montis”. Climate mildness growns in the hinterland, between villages and pievi, a typically sub-mediterranean landscape. The mountains help to mantain the summer heat retained by the mass of water of the lake and to redistribute in winter on olive groves, lemons and vineyards.
