My Fantastic, Amazing Holiday In Italy 2015 (Day 5 – Day 8)

Click here to see what happened before this.

Day 5

Malcesine and Lake Garda

First we went to Malcesine and stopped for a picnic dinner on the side of Lake Garda. When we had had our dinner we went for a cable car ride up a huge mountain called: Monte Baldo right to the top.

This is the cable car

When we got to the top of the mountain we started exploring and found a cable car used in 1962.

The playground

Then we went to some hills on the mountain and found a playground. After that we went to the top of another hill on the mountain and looked down at Lake Garda from 1,800 metres above sea level.

This is the view of Lake Garda.

Afterward we went down the mountain again in the cable cars. When we got to the station at the bottom of the mountain we drove to a place like a beach and Lake Garda was like the sea and we had a swim in the lake.

Then we went back to the apartment and got a takeaway pizza for tea.

Day 6

Gardaland Resort and La Pampa


First we went to Gardaland Resort, which is a theme park.

This is me driving a train! Whoooooooooooooooooo Whoooooooooooooooooo

Did you know that Gardaland is the biggest theme park in Italy!?!?!?!?!?

The first thing we went on was called: Fuga Da Atlantide, which is a Log Flume. Sadly we didn’t really get wet at all except at the end when water guns soaked us!

Then we went on the Jungle Rapids and then the Mammut a Roller Coaster.


Also I went on the Flying Island, which is like a space ship that goes up and up really high, and you can see lots of lovely views of Gardaland and Lake Garda which is next to Gardaland.

Then there was the Space Vertigo where you go up a tall tower in the shape of a mushroom and some pulleys that pull you up drop you when you are at the top and you go down the tower to where you started off. I went on that ride twice.

After that I went on the Magic Mountain, which is a Roller Coaster and the Colorado Boat another Log Flume and a Peter Pan ride in a ship going round, and round in a circle. After that I went on a Merry-go-round called: Giostra Cavalli and I went on a horse that went up and down all the time.

La Pampa

After Gardaland Resort we went to a restaurant called: La Pampa, which is a famous meat restaurant, so we had some delicious Steak, Chicken, Sausages & Ribs. The sausages were my favourite.

Day 7

We went to Gardaland Sealife Aquarium and I touched a real starfish and saw lots of amazing fish.

Then at night we went to a restaurant called: Alle Vigne and I had a Scallop gratin.

    You really are a lucky boy Dillon going to all those lovely places on holiday.
    I bet not many children have played in a playground so high up a mountain and with such a stunning view.
    Lake Garda looks very impressive and beautiful,you must have really enjoyed swimming in it and what a brilliant sun set.
    Gardaland looks exiting,which ride did you like the best? I think I would have liked the train roller coaster.
    All the food looked delicious,especially the scallop gratin.
    Well done on another great blog.

    Another great blog post Dillon! I love reading about all of your adventures! Wow those cable cars look high up- bet you could see so much from all the way up there! The photos are beautiful. Gardaland looks really fun too 🙂 I have always wanted to go to Lake Garda and your blog has made me want to go even more- I’ll have to persuade Uncle Ryan!

    Looking forward to your next post! Xxx
