Thermal park on Lake Garda
Are there some cooler days in the weather forecast or do you just feel like diving into thermal water like the Romans did centuries ago? In Colà di Lazise you can find a beautiful park and if you are curious about what you can do in Villa dei Cedri, then you are in the right place. This thermal park on Lake Garda; or rather thermal lakes, will certainly enrich your visit to Lake Garda!
The thermal water….
The discovery of the thermal spring dates back to the period between the 80s and 90s. This subsequently led to the recognition of the therapeutic properties of the water, shortly after the thermal park construction. Its distinctive feature is that it is a natural SPA.
Among what to do at the Parco Termale del Garda, there are the warm thermal waters, where you can immerse yourself and relax enjoying the pleasant temperature. The spring waters flow from two deep water levels of 160 and 200 meters, and have a view of the numerous fountains and waterfalls. In addition, you will be surrounded by centuries-old trees and plants while you enjoy relaxing whirlpools.
Villa dei Cedri
The second thing to do at the Parco Termale del Garda is to visit the most famous building inside the park, Villa dei Cedri. Its construction (end 18th – beginning 19th century) was entrusted to the state architect, appointed during the Napoleonic domination. After the restoration, 27 rooms were created to accommodate visitors to the park.
You will appreciate its neoclassical style by observing the main facade. Green marble portals frame the entrance, while inside the Villa you can appreciate a fountain in veronese red marble, as well as several statues and frescoes.
Villa Moscardo, on the other hand, embodies the structure of a pre-Renaissance manor house. Its facade is dedicated to the visit of Emperor Charles V in the 16th century. Here, keeping the original characteristics and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a restaurant was built. In fact, you will have the opportunity to taste refined and sophisticated dishes. In front, there is the modern spa, whose structure recalls the stables and guest quarters that once were here.
Another thing I recommend to do at the park is to visit the greenhouse, whose you will notice easily thanks to its iron and glass structure. It is one of the most recognized examples of winter gardens in the area around Verona. It is located at the main thermal lake and inside it there are many services and a heated relaxation area.

The Parco Termale del Garda: Villa dei Cedri
Did you know where the name “dei Cedri” comes from? Simply from the presence of about 150 species of cedars. If you visit this park in the autumn-winter season, the scents emanating from these fruit trees will inundate you.
The park is ready to meet all your needs. In fact, there are not only the Main Lake and Small Lake, but also the ancient marble basins with cold water used as cryotherapy. The temperature of the lakes is around 33-39° C and 29-30° C respectively.
Do not think, then, that the thermal water has only the purpose of relaxing. There are also many other functions. The thermal water of the park, in fact, gives high anti-inflammatory benefits thanks to its high pH, which makes it an alkaline water. In addition, it contains bicarbonate, calcium, magnesium and a significant level of silicon.
