PESCHIERA DEL GARDA, LAZISE, PUNTA SAN VIGILIO, TORRI DEL BENACO, MALCESINE AND MOUNT BALDO
Guided tour 8-10 hours.
We’ll welcome the day with a walking tour in Peschiera del Garda to admire the mighty fortified ramparts on water and the place where Lake Garda generates its son, the Mincio river having brilliant emerald green colours. Then we’ll visit Lazise, a small village still within the medieval walls, with a lovely old harbour, the church of San Nicolò and the medieval castle built by the Della Scala family. We’ll stop in the gulf of Garda to admire the romantic beauty of Punta San Vigilio, an enchanting angle of paradise with its tiny harbour, the old lemon greenhouse and the old tavern. We’ll admire Torri Del Benaco, interesting for its XIV century castle with a big greenhouse full of centenary lemon trees and the Hotel Gardesana, which was the palazzo where the Captain assembled the Gardesana Council. In Malcesine we’ll see the magnificent castle of the Della Scalas situated high on a rocky hill near the lake. Then, walking through narrow old cobbled streets, we’ll admire the lake from the Captain’s Palace. Next we’ll live the strong emotion of having a breathtaking panoramic view of the lake from an altitude of 1800 meters going on Mount Baldo by cable cars with fully rotating cabins!
