Hi

Yes, there are ferries to take you to other places on the lake and if you have very good eyesight you might be able to see these ferry timetables:-)

Passenger ferries:

Car ferry between Torri del Benaco and Maderno:

We've been to Lake Garda lots of times and are also staying at Torri this year for the first time. The ferry service at Torri is not as good as some of the other resorts. There is a regular ferry to Maderno, which is a very quiet town, small but pretty, and you will be able to get another ferry from there to visit other parts of the lake that are not accessible from Torri.

Day trips might include Sirmione which is very beautiful. There is a nice 40 minute lakeside walk between Bardoino and Garda, and they are both nice towns. At the north of the lake you have Riva, Limone and Malcesine. There is also an organised tour on a coach that takes you all around the lake and I think it's worth doing. There are some very good, Lake Garda experts, who will give better advice.

And, of course, there is Venice and Verona. The opera at Verona Arena is particularly good, even if you're not an opera fan.

Will you have a car or will you be using public transport, and when are you travelling. There are two buses from Torri del Benaco, the 483 goes to Peschiera del Garda to the south and Malcesine to the north. The 484 travels south to Garda and north to Riva del Garda. To reach Verona you would need to get to either Garda, then another bus to Verona, or to Peschiera del Garda where you can take the train to Verona.

Summer bus timetables come into operation on the 12th June. Malcesine and the cable car to Monte Baldo is definitely worth a trip, but make sure it's a clear day to get the best views. Sirmione is also a good trip for first time visitors. The easiest way to reach Sirmione would probably be to take the bus to Garda then a ferry to Sirmione. The other alternative would be bus to Peschiera, a second bus to Sirmione then the shuttle bus to the old town. To visit towns on the western shore you would really need to get to Garda then take a ferry.

When in September will you arrive? Bus timetables change again on the 10th September which may mean there will be fewer services. I'm sure you will have a good time but you will need to study bus and ferry timetables carefully to help you get around easily.

As has been said, Torri doesn't have a very frequent passenger ferry service but it is linked to all other eastern shore towns by bus, and there is the car ferry to Maderno.

There are lots of lovely places to visit around the lake, but if you want to travel further afield there are organised excursions including the Lake Tour that Eddie mentioned above:
