Situated along the northern-west side of Lake Garda, Brenzone sul Garda is one of the largest town inside the province of Verona. Its territory extends from the beaches of the lake to the top of Monte Baldo (more than 2000 metres of height).
Brenzone is composed by 16 small communities scattered on the slopes inland where residential and vast natural areas alternate each other. One of the peculiarities of Brenzone is the absence of a real town center.
As time hasn't changed the aspect of this town, Brenzone could certainly be considered the ideal place for a relaxing holiday far away from the stress of every day life.

For those who love art and history, Lake Garda offers a fascinating dive into the past: medieval villages with their old walls towers and castles recall memorable battles and great times.
The sumptuous villas - a signe of the wealth and power in times of peace: in Gargnano the majestic Palazzo Bettoni, designed at the end of the seventeenth century, in Gardone Riviera the famous Vittoriale degli Italiani, the monumental setting Gabriele d'Annunzio lived in the '30s is an extraordinary and unsurpassed collection of buildings, streets, squares, theaters, gardens, parks and waterways.
Do not miss a visit to Sirmione to the remains of the Roman Villa known as Grotte di Catullo, which is the most magnificent example of a nobility private building in Northern Italy.
To enjoy the lake at its best and admire a beautiful structure, we suggest a day visit to the Isola del Garda. The island is located on the Brescian side of Lake Garda. It owes much of its charm to the extraordinary Venetian neo-gothic style villa, designed by the architect Luigi Rovelli in the early '900 but also to its marvelous lush gardens, full of local plants, exotic and unique flowers.
In the food and wine chapter, an area like Lake Garda, which ranges from fresh water - an ideal refuge for fish- at mount Baldo's pastures, passing through the olive groves that give the precious extra virgin olive oil of Garda Dop, represents the perfect location for a varied traditional cuisine which is suitable for all seasons.
Place of honor for the wine production; from Bardolino to Chiaretto, from Valpolicella to Amarone, from Recioto al Lugana, from Custoza to Marzemino, the wines of this territory are among the best in Italy.
