Lago Di Levico is a slice of heaven hidden amongst the mountains. One of the best things to do in Valsugana, here’s all the info for visiting.
Lago Di Levico, or Lake Levico, is located in the town of Levico Terme.
Just a 20 minute walk from the town centre, or a 15 minute drive from Caldonazzo, the lake itself is accessible from anywhere in Levico.
The best options in terms of public transport are hotel transfers, buses or taxis. However we recommend renting a car for your entire Italy trip.
That way you can pick up the car from the airport and explore the region at ease.
Another option is of course a private taxi to Lago Di Levico.
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
Lago Di Levico Entrance Fee
Entrance is completely free.
There is a car park on site which starts at €1,20 per hour or €6 per day.
Lago Di Levico Opening Times
Lago Di Levico is a public lake, accessible 24/7.
However, we only recommend visiting in daylight hours, especially if going out onto the lake, as this is when there are lifeguards in attendance.
Best Time To Visit Lago Di Levico + Tips
Honestly, this place is ideal to visit at any time. As long as the sun is out!
The obvious recommendations would be to avoid weekends and public holidays if you don’t like crowds, as it’s a very family friendly lake and popular with children.
There are cafes on site, however if you’re on a budget you can take your own picnic like we did!
There’s a large park beside the lake with several picnic tables to use if you do want to sit and enjoy food you’ve brought with you.
What To Pack:
What To Expect At Lago Di Levico
The ideal spot for an afternoon of relaxing with a picnic!
Spanning across 2.8 km in length, and 1 km in width, Lago Di Levico is an amazing spot for walking, cycling, fishing or just simply relaxing.
The lake lies adjacent to its big brother, Lago Di Caldonazzo and the two are separated only by a forested hill named Colle di Tenna.
Both are not surprisingly very popular lakes in Trentino with locals and tourists. With beautiful scenery in every direction the whole area has a lovely tranquil feel.
In summer there’s plenty to do at Lago Di Levico including canoeing, swimming, sailing, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding or renting electric boats.
The swimming area is roped off, so the pedal boats and swimmers can enjoy the lake safely in their separate areas.
Come winter, Christmas markets are set up in the Habsburg Park, plus there are a few sports that can be practiced on the snow.
Surrounded by small beaches, we headed down with a picnic in hand to cool off in the lake after a morning of paragliding!
Unfortunately, we were short on time, so didn’t get to walk around the lake itself. However the most popular trail is the Fishermen’s Road, which circles around the whole lake – 8.5 km in total.
Tourists often compare Lago Di Levico to a Norwegian fiord. It’s undoubtedly a peaceful haven amongst the pines that you won’t want to miss in Valsugana.
