Torri del Benaco

Olive trees, Venetian palaces and solitary churches at the foot of Monte Baldo

Nestling at the foot of Monte Baldo, along the shores of Lake Garda and surrounded by pine forests, olive and lemon groves, Torri del Benaco combines the charm of a medieval village with the liveliness of the modern tourist centre.

This town is dominated by the enormous XIV century Scaliger Castel, which hosts an ethnographic Museum with interesting displays dedicated to prehistoric rock engravings, fishing, olive growing and the eighteenth-century lemon greenhouse.

Torri del Benaco offers various types of accommodations including hotels, apartments, residences and camping that guarantee a pleasant stay.

There are numerous routes that can be covered by mountain bike. These paths amid hornbeam, hazel and oak trees lead into the hills and Mount Baldo. There are also tennis courts, jogging, horseback riding and golf. Torri del Benaco is a true paradise for sailing and windsurfing as well as a popular centre for diving enthusiasts who can admire a fascinating underwater nativity scene during the Christmas season.
