What’s Malcesine like
A newly built cableway starts from Malcesine, which takes visitors first to the San Michele station, at 1000 meters and then, with a cabin that rotates on itself so that all occupants enjoy the 360 degrees panorama, on top del Monte Baldo at 1780 meters.
The highlight of Malcesine is certainly the Castello Scaligero with its high tower, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the lake.
One room of the castle is dedicated to the poet Goethe, of whom it is said that in 1786 he tried to portray him from a boat on the lake but, caught in the act by the police, he was taken for a spy and arrested.
Also worth seeing is the Palace of Captains with its paintings and the small garden in the water, the harbor and the splendid lakeview stroll.
It is very nice to walk through the streets at the foot of the Castle, where there are shops of painters, sculptors and artisans who exhibit their works.
