It offers a rich medieval heritage, as well as a unique culture thanks to the combination of Italian and German inhabitants, making it the perfect all round holiday destination. 

Today you are free to explore the charming towns adorning the lakeside via ferry – marvel at the medieval Scaligeri castles, pick up some bargains at the colourful alfresco markets or stroll along the lake-side promenades. If you enjoy hiking, the steep pathways of the Monte Baldo provide the perfect setting for more challenging walks. The area around the lake is also a major producer of wine and oils so take the opportunity to visit one of the local wineries and olive oil factories (pre-bookable excursions are available).
