Peschiera del Garda is set at the low shore of the Veronese Lake Garda, 25 km from Verona. It is the most occidental city of the Veneto region. Peschiera is set at the feet of the morainic hills, where the Lake Garda waters flow in the Mincio river. Canals surround the city completely and walls that have changed the natural rivers flood close the old town centre.
A bike track starts form the city through cypresses, olive groves and the antique mills (about 42,5 km). The track takes to Mantua. Another path starting from Peschiera takes through the Mincio Natural Park, along the homonymous river.
Peschiera and Desenzano are the only two cities on Lake Garda directly reachable by train and they are consequently well connected with Milan and Venice. For example, the journey from Peschiera to Milan lasts around an hour and a half. The train station is only a couple of minutes on foot from the old town centre.
