Limone

Nestling alongside lemon groves, beneath the cliffs of the north-western shore of Lake Garda, Limone is a picture postcard resort - an artist’s paradise. Houses covered in blossoming geraniums and bougainvillaea line the old, cobbled streets that lead up from the lakeside. The lakeside is equally colourful with two small harbours, old arches and a variety of shops - leather goods are a speciality.

There are wonderful opportunities in the resort of Limone for walking as well as fireworks displays, cultural visits and concerts in the square most Saturdays. Limone’s bars and promenade really come to life in the evening. Our hotels in Limone offer you a great choice of accommodation for the perfect stay.
