About Malcesine Tour Holidays Package Holidays Things to do in Malcesine
Enchantingly beautiful with its quaint maze of narrow cobbled streets, its unspoilt harbour and of course breathtaking views across the lake, Malcesine lies at the foot of Mount Baldo, on the eastern shore of the captivating Lake Garda.

Follow the romantic trail of narrow cobbled streets that meander their way through the town leading to a cute pebble beach. The harbour with its colourful boats bobbing by its walls, is surrounded by restaurants, cafés and shops allowing guests to sample a taste of ’la dolce vita’ as they sit, relax and people watch over a drink or two. Malcesine lends itself to a slower pace of life, where sauntering through the beautiful medieval town and relaxing by the waters edge is very much the order of the day.

One of the most visited tourist attractions in the area is the impressive Scaligeri Castle with its rich history, having been restored and adapted for military purposes up until the nineteenth century and offering some of the best views of Mount Baldo too. The castle is a popular wedding venue and it is easy to see why. With its turrets and romantic fairytale-like appearance, it provides the perfect backdrop for a fantastic wedding.

There are plenty of day trips and excursions available in the area and with excellent ferry connections to other lakeside resorts, Malcesine is a great base for sightseeing and exploring all that Lake Garda has to offer. Riva and Limone are both close by, or you can catch the boat to any of the other lakeside resorts that take your fancy. Verona makes for a good day trip from here and some visitors even journey to Venice for the day too.
