Malcesine Holidays

An Italian classic, crowned by its famous castle

Malcesine’s pedestrianised cobbled streets lead up from the lakeside, past shops, cafés and shady squares to the 13th Century castle which towers above the lake on a sheer rock face. The Saturday market is not to be missed and the excellent ferry service makes Riva and Limone easily accessible too. The long promenade leads out from the resort’s southern end past shingle beaches to lovely Val di Sogno, an idyllic spot for lake bathing and watersports. Take the cable-car to the top of Monte Baldo behind Malcesine. Here you will enjoy superb views, an abundance of walks and beautiful nature. With so much variety and character, your holiday in Malcesine is an ideal choice.

A night at the opera in the ancient arena in Verona must surely be one of life’s great experiences even if you’re not an opera buff.

A new stage design for Carmen by Bizet, there are also performances of Nabucco by Verdi, as well as Turandot by Puccini. If you are staying in any of the main resorts on Lake Garda, we can book most performances (listed on the Verona Opera page) and transport to & from Verona is included in addition to your opera ticket.
