This is Italy's largest lake, perenially popular, and a great place for watersports and family holidays. This is the one lake that seems both Alpine and Mediterranean. The northern reaches of the lake are quite mountainous, with rugged cliffs. The south, where the lake fans out into the Lombardian plain, is altogether softer, with more Mediterranean flora. Lake Garda was originally called Lake Benacus, a name of Celtic origin. In 268 AD, the Emperor Claudius confronted the Alamanni at the Battle of Lake Benacus. The Alamanni were routed, forced back into Germany, and did not threaten Roman territory for many years afterwards.
There are a number of beautiful lakeside towns, and lots of strolling or sitting in lakeside cafs to be done. The beautiful city of Verona is a short drive away. If you're traveling with kids, (or even without) Gardaland, Italy's largest theme park makes for a fun day out.
Garda was formed more than 10,000 years ago by a glacier, which, having thrust its way south into the Lombardy plain, receded, leaving the lake. More than 30 miles long, its maximum width is 10 miles, its circumference 100 miles. The maximum depth is 1,135 ft, though 488 ft of that is a moraine deposit (moraine is the name given to the rocks and soil deposited by a glacier). The lake extends over three provinces: Verona, to the southeast, Brescia to the southwest and Trento in the north.
Some parts of your preparedness program may be relatively quick and easy to put forward. For instance, instructions for building evacuation procedures can be communicated to and exercised by your workforce in a short time. Still, overall, it will take a little more time to put your comprehensive and integrated plans and teams in place.
Like the members of a professional sports team, it takes a while to come up with a strategic game plan. Then the players must work together to understand how best to make use of individual and team strengths. This result takes planning, selecting the right team members with diverse skills and strengths, training the individuals and team, and then engaging in sufficient team practices until they develop a smooth, organized, and integrated flow. The process is the same, whether it’s a winning sports team or an effective crisis management organization. Putting your preparedness plan in action means executing a series of distinct steps.See more
