A short distance from our B & B you will find many beautiful beaches on the Verona side of Lake Garda along with the many villages that overlook it, with their castles and medieval alleyways and where you can taste local specialties based on fish from the lake, oil and wine of the region. Do not miss the tour of the lake by boat!
Valeggio, Borghetto and Parco Sigurtà
Nearby you can visit the closer town of Valeggio, a beautiful medieval village on the hills of Lake Garda, with its castle and the Visconti Bridge on the River Mincio. Furthermore we find one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy, the Sigurtà. It is indeed a beautiful park of 600,000 square meters, with trees and impressive blooms.
Valeggio is also famous for gastronomy and the famous “tortellini” or “love knot”.
A little further downstream from Valeggio and linked by common historical past, is Borghetto, a charming small group of houses and old mills on the river Mincio.
Few kilometers away there is the city of Verona, also called the “city of love” for the known tragedy of Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare.
The city of Verona is an important tourist destination for its wealth of art and architecture that ranges in different eras, from Roman to Medieval and then Renaissance.
It’s also famous for the important opera season which is held every summer in her magical Roman amphitheater, the “Arena”
