      Garda Lake is the biggest lake in Italy and a famous place for holidays. It’s located in Northern Italy, about half-way between Brescia and Verona, and between Venice and Milan.

      There are many cities around this lake and the view during the trip is amazing, because you can drive around the lake.

      One of the cities that most called my attention is Limone. They produce many products with the Sicilian lemon, like soaps, sweets and drinks. One of them is called limoncello, it is a lemon liquor.

      Parts of the 2008 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace were filmed around Limone and include a car chase along the lakeside road, Via Gardesana. The shoot was dogged by bad luck and talk of a ‘curse’.
