Desenzano del Garda
esenzano del Garda is today a lively town located at the south-west end of Lake Garda.
At the center of a large gulf bordered to the west by the Monte Corno hill and to the east by the Sirmione peninsula, it is in a privileged geographical position from which you can admire the most beautiful European lake in its maximum extension.
The motorway exit (Autostrada A4 “Serenissima”) and the proximity to the airports of Montichiari and Verona make it a node of such importance that Desenzano can rightly boast of being considered the “capital of Garda”. Desenzano, therefore, is a place that offers the possibility of intelligent tourism, which aims to combine rest and fun with a stimulating search for landscapes and fascinating historical-environmental memories. Added to this is the proximity of cities rich in artistic masterpieces such as Verona, Mantua and Brescia.
Immediately south of Desenzano there is the largest morainic amphitheater in Italy, which lends itself to relaxing and healthy walks in the hills in search of picturesque towns.
Therefore in Desenzano, in addition to resting and enjoying the comfort of a modern city with a wonderful pedestrianized historic center, you can plan short excursions to change your stay.
In less than an hour of time it is possible to reach Monte Baldo (over 2,000 meters above sea level), thus rapidly passing from Mediterranean to alpine flora.
Sports lovers can practice wind-surfing, mountain biking, free flight.
For the young and the tireless there is no lack of discos and piano bars, while the less young can stroll along the lakefront or under the arcades of the central Piazza Malvezzi.
In winter the climate is temperate and fog-free and in summer the refreshment of the breeze coming from the lake never fails.
