The basilica built right on the rock is must visit place if you are at Lago di Garda. The picturesque church is in the shadow in the morning. You get the best light on the basilica from midday onwards. It's pretty popular and gets even more crowded during the weekends especially on Sundays. However, during service, you hear the choir echoing in the valley which creates a very special atmosphere.

Expedition cruises to Antarctica are only possible during the southern summer between late October/November and March. This is the time when the ice break ups, which allows cruise ships to pass. Depending on the month, there are slight variations in what you’ll see and which antarctic animals you may spot:

November (Icebergs, Seals)

Iceberg in Antarctica at sunset

Best time to see the ice breaking into large icebergs and amazing sculptures. Wildflowers are in bloom, and it’s a great time to spot breeding elephant seals. However, it’s still very cold. Temperatures are way below freezing.

 

December (Warmer, Seals, First Penguins)

Seal in Antarctica

Days are long, with 20 hours of sunshine. Still a great month to spot seals and already some active penguins. It’s also getting warmer with temperatures around freezing.

 

January (Warmest Month, Penguins)

Penguins in Antarctica

The perfect month for wildlife viewing, with plenty of penguins active, as well as seabirds and a few whales. Days are still long. It’s also the ‘warmest’ month with temperatures slightly above freezing.

 

February - March (Whales)

Humpback Whales in Antarctica

The best time for whale watching such as humpback, sperm, and orca. You can also spot fledgling penguin chicks, especially in February. It’s getting a lot colder again in March.

 

April - September (Winter) 

Winter in Antarctica. The temperatures are freezing (up to -30°C). No possible way to visit, as the polar ice blocks the ship traffic.

More exciting from November to February: You can watch the planting, the plants themselves or the actual harvesting process.

Weather and Crowds:
Best during the dry season roughly from November to April but it's also the peak season. Shoulder season May and June is worth a try and less crowded. Showers may occur but easier to find a nice casa without booking in advance. Avoid the cyclon season from July to October and the school holiday from July to August.
