Why go to Bardolino

On the eastern Veneto shore of Lake Garda, prosperous Bardolino is a town in love with the grape. More than 70 vineyards and wine cellars grace the gentle hills that roll east from Bardolino’s shores, many within DOC and the even stricter DOCG quality boundaries. They produce an impressive array of pink Chiaretto, ruby Classico, dry Superiore and young Novello.


Historic center: it is wonderful to walk in the center of Bardolino and admire the typical fishermen’s houses a stone’s throw from the lake shore. These houses were not built at random, but were built in a herringbone pattern, one behind the other starting from the first one on the beach. The streets are then perpendicular to the coast to facilitate the transport of boats safely in front of the house.
