To enter Peschiera del Garda, cross the bridge over the Mincio river and Porta Verona, an imposing entrance gate in the sixteenth century, where you can still see the signs of the base where the Lion of San Marco stood out, destroyed by Napoleonic troops , and the inscription in Latin placed to warn foreigners.

Peschiera del Garda

Located not far from the center of Verona, Peschiera del Garda is the first pearl overlooking the lake of the same name, developed above all on an important defensive and strategic work. This small lake village is located in an area sheltered from the winds, organized between canals and bridges, fortifications and small piers, and embellished with beautiful churches and noble palaces.

You can also visit the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Frassino, a monumental baroque church, embellished with numerous works of art, dedicated to the Madonna del Frassino who miraculously appeared in the fifteenth century, among the branches of an ash tree.

Peschiera del Garda

Today Peschiera is one of the main cities of Garda, thanks to the marvelous position it occupies both on the shores of the lake and of the Mincio river, which descends from here to the Po. In the city you will not find the calm and intimacy that you breathe in the south along the Mincio, in the magic that Lake Grada can give, yet Peschiera will remain in your hearts like few other cities in the region.
