The primary location is Polpenazze del Garda – a modest sized town with ambitious organisers. The other locations are on the south-west bank between Padenge and Desenzano.

Gardaland Amusement Park

Lake Garda

Sirmione
​On a peninsula in the south of Lake Garda sits the beautiful village of Sirmione.
