Limone sits on the shores of Lake Garda, the village is built into the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains near Trento. It’s a romantic village of old houses, winding alleys, flowered balconies, shops, taverns, bars and restaurants, with a church dating back to the 10th century. A weekly market sells local products - lemons, olive oil, wine, cheese - and a fishermen’s museum tells the story of Limone’s history.
Walking is a great way to explore the Limone landscape
Easy lakeside trails and challenging hikes stretch from lake-level up to 1,000m around Limone. There are no gondola's so if you want those views from the top you'll need to work hard, but it's very rewarding! Whatever path you choose, the views are immense.
Boat tours of Lake Garda and visits to other towns
Taking a boat to and from Limone is where you’ll get the best views of the village. The ferries are a quick way to visit other areas around Lake Garda, and you can take tours that follow the coastline and its historic spots, docking at other charming Lake Garda villages.
Italian food & wine
It being Italy, the food and wine scene in Limone is great, and you don’t have to pay much for it. Head out to local restaurants and bars for the best food and atmosphere. Lake Garda is famous for its vineyards, with traditions and roots in the Bronze Age; try Aperitivo Chiarè, a pink sparkling wine spritzer made from local rosé, or a glass of classic Bardolino. For a small village, there are a surprising number of good bars in Limone.
Biking around Limone
In 2018 the Limone sul Garda section of the Ciclopista del Garda (Garda Cycle Path) was completed, and takes you on a stunning lakeside trail along Limone’s coastline. The path is built into the rocky cliffs, hanging 50 metres above the lake. You can even cycle on it at night, thanks to LED flood lighting. Head inland and there’s a paradise of dirt tracks and mule paths for mountain biking, and kilometres more paved roads for cycling.
