If you are travelling to northern Italy with Air Dolomiti and you need an attraction that will delight all of your family, Gardaland fits the bill perfectly. Italy's premier theme park is a wonderland for kids and even has plenty of fun for adults to enjoy as well.
In fact, Gardaland offers activities for all ages, from the playgrounds designed for young children to adrenaline-pumping rollercoaster rides like the high-speed Blue Tornado. There are the surreal perspectives and wacky mirrors of the Magic House, the chance to experience the thrill of the hunt at Mammut, the opportunity to step into ancient Egypt with Ramesses: The Awakening, and Black Hole that's Italy's first dive-style roller coaster and the longest of its kind in Europe – if you have the guts, it's a ride that you simply have to try! Then there's Shaman, a Gardaland 2017 special, with its double loop and virtual reality features.
When you need to relax, you can also head to Sea Life Aquarium – one of the biggest in Italy. Start with the charismatic Patagonian sea lions, who live in their own environment complete with icy rocks and fjords, before moving onto the Turtle Shelter, where you can meet a community of freshwater turtles. Alternatively, just wander around the various galleries, exploring the wonders of the Aquarium. There are hundreds of marine creatures to see, from dazzling tropical fish to fearsome crabs.
Getting to Gardaland is simple. Just catch the train to Peschiera del Garda and transfer to a Gardaland shuttle bus. It only takes 15 minutes, so if you don't know what to do in Verona, you can always reach the theme park in no time.
For most of the summer, Gardaland is open from 10:00 until 23:00, making it a great evening destination after a day of sightseeing. And there are also special events on the Gardaland 2017 schedule, including White Nights, which feature DJ sets until 3:00 in the morning.
