Malcesine is a medieval village, surrounded by nature and teeming with history and life.
Its history comes to light in the details of the buildings, in the views that open up in the alleys, in the merlons of Castello Scaligero’s surrounding walls. Life pulsates among the chatter in the squares, the colourful boats moored in the harbour, the smiles exchanged in the shops and bars.
Moving inland, the landscape of Malcesine is etched by the green of the olive trees and Monte Baldo. Towards Lake Garda, the crystal blue of Italy’s largest lake dominates.
Malcesine is positioned right on the lake’s rocky shore. The symbol of this enchanting village is Castello Scaligero: the ancient fortress standing on a rocky outcrop, overlooking the lake.
We recommend you visit Malcesine’s Castle: the view from the tower or from the courtyard of Rivellino is unmissable!
