 Scaligerian castle - Malcesine

 

We depart from Limone by boat and in about 15 minutes we reach the small city of Malcesine. We take one of the characteristic lanes that cross the historical center in direction of the Castle. This magnificent castle was the extreme outpost of defense and control on the north part of the Lake Garda of the Longobardis. The ancient walls, the maze of lanes of the old city, the pavement speak of its ancient history, contained and protected from the bastions of the castle, which today hold the museums of natural history of Monte Baldo and Lake Garda. Very nice and pleasant the small square with the typical chessboard-pattern. On the top of the tall castle-tower an exciting sight on the Lake Garda and on the houseroofs of Malcesine waits for us. In the clearest days the sight spaces from Riva del Garda to the Fortress Rocca di Manerba. Not far away is to see the fifteenth-century Building “Palazzo dei Capitani”, with the vault that remembers the Venetian government: a beautiful lion of San Marco shows itself in its full power.

 Cableway Malcesine-Monte Baldo

 

We depart from Limone by boat and in about 15 minutes we reach the small city of Malcesine. About 500 meters away from the small harbour we find the cableway. The plant is separated in two sections: the first one, Malcesine - S. Michele, the second one, S. Michele - Monte Baldo. The most important new feature of this cableway, and one that makes it totally unique throughout the world, is the cabin on the second section, which rotates on itself to give passengers a 360° view, as well as the sensation that they are flying. The notable total difference in altitude (1650 m.) has completed in only 10 minutes. In one of the few beautiful summerdays, from the top of the mount can be seen to naked eye, northwards the snowy peaks of Adamello-Brenta's glacier, eastwards Venice. From the meadows of Monte Baldo fly away colored paraglides which plunges itself in the blue of Lake Garda. A pic-nic on the grass could be a nice idea. The cableway-boxes carry also the bicycles. For the of mountain bike and trekking experts, from the top-station numerous paths depart and cross the whole crest of the Monte Baldo-chain or go down to Malcesine, Nago and Torbole. In the summer if we go down to Malga Prà Alpesina (ca 2,5 Kms) we can see the cows to graze and purchase the cheeses here produced.

 Torri del Benaco and S. Vigilio

 

By car to Maderno where we catch the ferry and in about 15 minutes we reach the city of Torri del Benaco. The ancient Scaligerian Castle of Torri del Benaco together with that that was its strengthened dock is a splendid example of military architecture and represented one of the more important military fortifications of the Lake Garda. Currently it hold an interesting etnographic Museum, with the characteristic aspects of local culture: the fishing with a show of the utensils that the fishermen used in the daily life, the production of the olive-oil, the cultivation of the citrus fruit with visit of the eighteenth-century greenhouse, still now in activity, where the native plants of lemons and orange tree (the only trees of Lake Garda survived to the frost of year 1985) are still cultivated. Another sector is devoted to the rocky incisions that have been found in the hinterland. Very nice the harbour zone with the ancient Venetian houses and the Building “Palazzo del Capitano del Governo”. 8 Kms away from Torri del Benaco is Punta S.Vigilio, small private village surrounded by cypresses and ulivi, by a romantic gulf (Bay of the Sirens), where we can have a bath, and by a small dock with restaurant where we can taste the typical dishes of Lake Garda.

 City of Garda

 

Garda is a very sunny and sheltered place with an ample and calm gulf. Sitting by one of the many cafes on the seepromenade you can admire the spectacular colored of red sunsets with a great sun that slowly sets behind the Brescia hills. Very suggestive are the small shops which open along the medieval lanes. To see: the Building “Palazzo dei Capitani”, the Tower “Torre dell'Orologio”, the Renaissance buildings Iosa, Parlotto and Fregoso; the patrician villas Villa Canossa, Villa Becelli Alberini.

 Bardolino and its wine

 

Bardolino is a joyful town with numerous places for tasting its famous wine. The morainic necks in its surround are propitious soil for the vineyards of Bardolino which are reflected from Lake Garda, inside a Prealpine environment which has the colors and the perfumes of the Mediterranean one. The mild climate, the sunny exposure, the equilibrium of rains and temperatures, the morphology of fields, the passion and the ability of producers, makes Bardolino a particularly pleasant wine appreciated wideworld. The ancienter origin area, which produces classical Bardolino D.O.C. wine, includes the whole territory of the munucipalities of Bardolino and Garda and partly that of Lazise, Cavaion, Costermano and Affi.
To remember: the party “FESTA DELL'UVA E DEL VINO BARDOLINO CLASSICO D.O.C.” from 29/09 until 02/10. Wine tastings and purchases, parade of musical groups and of the brotherhoods of wine, awardings of best grapes and wines, fireworks.

 The medieval city of Lazise

 

Few kilometers southwards of Bardolino we find Lazise, beautiful town with an ancient history. We enter in the city through the ancient doors of the defensive boundaries and explore the lanes rich in shops and restaurants. A visit to the castle, as also to the Romanesque small church of S. Nicolò, rich of frescos, on the edge of the dock. There nearby, among the fishing nets stretched at the sun there is the ancient Venetian custom-house. You can combine this visit with that to the near Thermal Park.

 Madonna della Corona

 

Not far away from Lake Garda, in Spiazzi, the Sanctuary of Madonna della Corona deserves a visit, set in a rocky wall to 773 meters of altitude. The legend tells that in a night of year 1522 two shepherds perceived an intense light shine among the steep slopes of the mountain. They hastened to see and they found the wooden image of a Pity surrounded of supernatural light. Later would be known that really in that days the Turks had conquered to the Venetians the Rhodos island where Our Lady of Sorrows was and, in the moment in which they were about to offend her, she had disappeared for going into exile among the ravines of the Monte Baldo. The Sanctuary rises on a precipice and is reachable in two ways. From Spiazzi with a brief walk or by small buses. On the other side, from the Vallagarina valley, the more devotees and athletic ones can climp up the staircase “Scala Santa” which begins from the bottom city of Brentino.

 Thermal park - Colà di Lazise

 

We find it in the community of Colà di Lazise. It offers caves with thermal water and pleasant heated swimming pools. Water, springs from a deep of about 160 meters at a temperature of about 37°C, through a throw in the middle of a small thermal lake. Even if the wheather and the temperature are not good you can grant yourself an afternoon of relax in these warm thermal water.

 Verona and its Arena

 

The arena in Verona is the third one in order of greatness, only preceded from the Colosseum and from the amphitheater of Capua. This imposing Roman amphitheater probably built around the I century b.C. rises in the heart of the city and had the purpose to offer to the spectators big exhibitions of struggles among gladiators and fights among wild beasts. Today it is instead theater of the Lyric Opera, from Verdi to Sheakspeare. It was really the prose of Sheakspeare to make immortal the stormy love story between Romeo and Juliet. The Balcony of Juliet is still today, to distance of centuries, the destination of fans, curious persons and of persons in love of all the world.
