Ancient fishing village famous today for its excellent wine

The fame of Bardolino is connected to the DOC (controlled designation of origin) wine with the same name that is appreciated in both its native land and abroad. This wine is the fruit of a fertile and generous soil and the mild climate of the area. The picturesque town situated on the Verona banks of Lake Garda has maintained a comb layout and architecture typical of fishing villages that are suggestive of its past and the business that characterized its economy before the arrival of tourism.

Bardolino offers numerous recreational facilities and new generation campsites to its guests. Bardolino is the realm of water sports, mountain-biking and the triathlon, this town of the area of Verona is also the ideal place for relaxing walks and adventurous excursions in the hilly hinterland.

Switching to the pleasures of good eating, the cuisine of Bardolino is supported by the traditional agricultural economy and its typical products, such as oil, fish and wine, which are served in fine restaurants at the port or in the cosy trattorias of the countryside. However, the flavour and taste experience is even more interesting along the Bardolino wine route: Here the cellars ritually open their doors, to both connoisseurs and non-connoisseurs for wine tasting and food events.
