Located near the lake Garda, Borghetto is often called one of the most enchanting Italian villages. This picturesque medieval hamlet lies along the banks of River Mincio from above on the Visconti Bridge – an extraordinary dam built in 1393 by the Duke of Milan, Gian Galeazzo Visconti. It’s laid back atmosphere and the charm of the water mills once used to grind wheat and cereals will provoke a love at first sight.
Visit this tiny hidden treasure in June, when the festival of Love Knots, Festa del Nodo d’Amore, is hosted across the Visconti Bridge. Enjoy in it’s culinary world tasting delicious local cousine and head to the light stroll through the ancient streets of the village. Otherwise, you can hop on a bike and spend the afternoon cycling along the Mincio to either Peschieradel-Garda or Mantua.
Take your own personal photographer in Borghetto to capture forever the moments of you ending the day among the walls of the imposing 10th century Scaligero Castle.
