BORGHETTO SUL MINCIO
Borghetto sul Mincio is one of the “most beautiful villages in Italy” (Borghi più belli d’Italia). And it is one of those places that seem unreal. Like a fairy tale. A few houses, only 160 residents. You arrive here crossing the Visconteo bridge and you discover a tiny village basically lying on the Mincio river , a perfect place for a romantic getaway and for taking pictures of an Italy that is already gone in many other places: Stone houses, some ancient watermills, the view of on the melancholic ruins of the medieval bridge and the Castle appearing among the trees on the hill.
VALEGGIO SUL MINCIO
Like the beautiful town of Borghetto, Valeggio was founded near an old ford on the river Mincio, less than 10 km from lake garda. It has always been a kind of cultural and commercial “cross-roads” where travellers over the ages have always found a place to rest and cordial hospitality, along with good food and wine.
Valeggio still cherishes this tradition, as evidenced by its renowned tortellini and its famous “love-knot” fest. The history of this area is written in the bloody conflicts of the past (it was situated along the Lombard border) and in the fortresses which still dot the country-side.
Between the 13th centuries the imposing “castello” (castle) was built, along with the battlemented walls (which surround the picturesque mill-town of Borghetto) and the famous Serraglio line and dam/bridge of the Visconti. Valeggio was caught up in the Napoleonic wars (sacked in 1800) and witnessed the slaughter (near Custoza) of the Italian Risorgimento.
Monzambano is lying in the morainic hills and is crowning lake Garda and lapt by river Mincio and has the same climate
conditions and vegetation of the lake. The landscape is evocative: a hilly countryside with vineyards from where are
standing out cypresses and olive trees. Appreciated for its tourist itineraries, gives a spontaneously and warm welcome
in its local restaurant and farmhouses where you can taste wine and typical dishes of this territory.
To visit: Medieval castle: built probably in the period of the Hungarian invasion as you can see from the perimeter and the
towers. One of them became a bell tower overlooking the Mincio valley which is open to visitors on Sunday afternoon
from April till August. Going down from the castle you reach the parish church
dedicated to Saint Michael the Arcangel. Started in 1743 and blessed in 1777 as told in the scroll at the top of the apse.

Best known for its Shakespeare associations, Verona attracts a multinational gaggle of tourists to its pretty piazzas and knot of lanes, most in search of Romeo, Juliet and all that. But beyond the heart-shaped kitsch and Renaissance romance, Verona is a bustling centre, its heart dominated by a mammoth, remarkably well-preserved 1st-century amphitheatre, the venue for the city’s annual summer opera festival(Arena di Verona). Add to that countless churches, a couple of architecturally fascinating bridges over the Adige, regional wine and food from the Veneto hinterland and some impressive art, and Verona shapes up as one of northern Italy’s most attractive cities. And all this just a short hop from the shores of stunning Lake Garda.
Placed in the center of the Po Valley, the city of Mantova is surrouded by lakes. The first inhabitants were Etruscans in Sordello Square. From the XIV century, the Gonzagas developed the cultural and artistic profile of the city, whose urban and architectural structure still exists today. Througth four centuries of governments; the Dukes of Mantova engaged the most famous artists of the times, such as Leon Battista Alberti, Pisanello, Andrea Mantegna, Giulio Romano, Rubens and others. Their works, still mark the splendor of the town.
