Rhythm and colours of a little hamlet between lake and mountain

Malcesine wins the heart of people coming here for the first time and still attracts those who, enchanted by this place, keep coming back. Olive tree groves and the majestic Moun Baldo ridge are to the east. The dynamic and vigorous Lake Garda with its beaches is to the west. And the mountains are there, on the forizon. In the middle, there's a little hamlet, nestled between water and mountain, gathered around the Scaliger castle. The castle, with its high tower, overlooks the whole town from a rock spur.
The old town centre is a net of steep cobbed streets filled with shops, with glimpse of old buildings, alleys and nature surrounding the town. Walking towards the lake, the port, the old port and the Palazzo dei Capitani are definitely worth a visit. Leaving the old town centre while walking on the lake front or on the cycle path, you'll end up taking pictures of the town with the mountains and the lake.
