Welcome to Malcesine, a place where walks, nature and sport are at ease with local traditions.
Malcesine is on the east coast of Lake Garda, at the feet of Monte Baldo.
The town is nestled on the shores of one of the narrowest parts of the Lake where is similar to a Fjord and with the mountain slopes rising steeply behind it.
Malcesine, like many other Lake Garda towns, is very old and has its origins in prehistory: archaelogical digs have discovered many pile-built lake dwellings.
Over the course of centuries, this area has been subject to many invasions and migrations of people from northern Europe.
Malcesine, with its historic and romantic twists and turns is, and has been, a place of interest and refuge for artists.
This small town, clustered around its castle, still has strong links to its medieval origins. The historic centre is a labyrinth of small streets reflecting the local businesses of the town: shops, boutiques, artisan, painter and sculptor workshops and showrooms, bars, restaurants and ice-cream parlours.
Thanks to the mild climate of Malcesine, it is a great place to visit in all seasons.
