The Zanardelli on the Garda-lake

Looking like an old chimney-ornament, this paddle-boat will never pass by unoted. Builded in Zurich (Switserland), with his sistership "The Italia", the boats were transported to the Garda-lake, assembled again in Peschiera and put into service in 1903. After a very stirring carreer, in 1983, the ship received his present outlook. The old compound steamboiler was, for economic raesons, replaced by a diesel-engine and the large wheel-house and the splendid upperdeck where created. Since than the "Zanardelli", in the touristic-season, shuttles on the lake and is very popular by the many tourists
