Salò is a small town in the province of Brescia, overlooking the gulf of the same name on Lake Garda.
It is the principal town of the Riviera dei Limoni, and bears the signs of a series of historical events.
Already populated during Roman times, Salò's origins probably have prehistoric roots, with Neo-lithic settlements.
The town acquired great importance in the 16th century, becoming the capital of a land known as Magnifica Patria.
Today it is a destination for many tourists, due to its distinctive lakeside promenade, its center re-nowned for luxury shopping and its many attractive bars and cafes.
Choosing a vacation in Salò means being able to choose from the town’s many activities.
These include the chance to take boat trips on the lake and relax on the beach in front of the town, where swimming is also possible.
The Saturday morning market is popular with tourists and not to be missed.
Of course, we must not forget Gardaland, just a few kilometers outside of town.
The closest little cities are Valtenesi, such as Moniga, Manerba and Puegnago.
They are famous for their wines, including "Chiaretto", and for their cuisine. It combines lake influ-ences based on fish, and mountain-inspired dishes with meat, cheese and mushrooms.
The pearl of the lake is without a doubt Sirmione, birthplace of the poet Catullus. Here you will find the famous thermal baths and many stately villas with beautiful gardens, reminders of the lake-front's noble past.
Verona is one of the most popular tourist cities, just an hour from Villa Mario. Located between Milan and Venice, the city is known as the home of Romeo and Juliet and for its Roman Coliseum and its beautiful plazas.
Whatever the season, the city welcomes tourists to St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco) to admire the much-photographed view, or those who choose to walk over the Rialto bridge (Ponte di Rialto) to admire the Grand Canal (Grande Canal) and jostle with the crowds to take a keepsake photo....
But its historic buildings, exhibitions, alleys and gondola trips also deserve at least one visit...
Mantua will win you over with its charm and its treasure trove of art.
Every street you walk along contains reminders of the powerful Gonzagas who loved it so and adorned it with beautifully decorated buildings. It is a city full of restaurants and small bars that al-low tourists to discover the famous Mantuan cuisine.
