How to get to Lake Garda by car

The nearest motorways and exits.

by Marco Ghirello

Lake Garda can be easily reached by car using two of the main Italian motorways: the A4 motorway or the A22 motorway.

The A4 motorway, also called Serenissima, connects the city of Turin to the city of Trieste in a west-east direction, passing through the provinces of Turin, Vercelli, Novara, Milan, Monza Brianza, Bergamo, Brescia, Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Venice, Treviso, Udine, Gorizia and Trieste. Inaugurated in 1927, it is 524 kilometres long and is a fundamental junction for the mobility of goods and people throughout northern Italy.

The A4 motorway exits closest to Lake Garda are Desenzano del Garda and Sirmione for the Lombardy region and Peschiera del Garda for the Veneto region.

The A22 motorway, also called Brennero - Modena, connects the Italian border with Austria to the city of Modena in a north-south direction, passing through the provinces of Bolzano, Trento, Verona, Mantua, Reggio Emilia and Modena. Inaugurated in 1968, it is 315 kilometres long and represents the most important and used communication route for German-speaking tourists or those coming from northern Europe.

The nearest A22 motorway exits to Lake Garda are those of Rovereto Sud (Lago di Garda Nord) for the Trentino Alto Adige region and Affi (Lago di Garda Sud) for the Veneto region.
