Malcesine has a lot going for it and it’s perfect for anyone seeking an active holiday. It’s in the north of the lake so you’ve got lots of mountain trails to explore. This is one of Lake Garda’s most recognisable resorts. Its beautiful 13th century castle makes it easy to spot from the water. If you go and take a closer look you’ll be rewarded with some pretty impressive lake views. We love the little cobbled streets and charming cafés too. There’s a long promenade from the southern end of the town where you can walk for a few miles along the lake.
What to see on a Malcesine holiday
The cable car goes straight from the town to the top of Monte Baldo, which is a starting point for lots of walk and cycles. The views from up here are incredible so we won’t blame you if you just want to sit and enjoy them instead. The town’s also big on water sports – you can try your hand at sailing or paddle boarding. There’s a busy ferry port too so you can head to some nearby towns like Limone or Riva very easily.
