Top things to See and Do in Castelnuovo (Gardaland)
Admire the view at Campanello
The Lido di Campanello is a scenic spot on the walk along the lakefront between Castelnuovo and Peschiera. There is a pebble beach and a small play area for children.
Relax at Ronchi
Sunbathe on the banks of the lake at Ronchi. Like most of the beaches on the lake, it’s a mix of pebbles and grass - there’s a bar so you can grab a drink and watch the waves lapping at the shore.
The weekly market is the place to go if you're after something special to take home. It runs every Tuesday morning and sells all kinds – from clothes to jewellery to delicious, locally-produced food.
Grab a glass of wine at the hotel bar, head for the garden and enjoy the tranquillity of this pretty setting.
Castelnuovo is more of a quiet town so if you’re looking for a something a bit more lively then head to the nearby towns of Peschiera or Lazise. During high season (15th June to 10th September) Gardaland is open until 11pm each day – so the fun can continue well after the sun sets.
Castelnuovo has plenty of restaurants where you can sample the freshest, local Italian cuisine at its best. There is a range of restaurants within the Gardaland hotel complex or, when you want a change of scenery, take a walk or a short taxi ride to Castelnuovo centre and Peschiera. Gardaland itself has loads of themed restaurants to keep you going throughout the day.
Matka Family Gourmet Restaurant
Easy to reach on foot, this is within the grounds of the Gardaland hotel complex and a quality restaurant that also caters for the little ones - perfect for the whole family.
Traditional Trattoria Al Taolon
Located about a 20 minute walk or a short cab ride from the Gardaland hotels, at Al Taolon you can enjoy an authentic Italian mail that won't break the bank. Meals are prepared with fresh produce that you can pair with a bottle of their delicious house wine.
The best of British at the Bench Pub
Also in Castelnuovo centre, the Bench Pub will appeal to football fans but also to anyone who loves a good gourmet burger - try the mega Premier League-themed burgers and support your home team. The portions are huge so come with an appetite.
