    The old town of Malcesine is worth seeing, small streets and shops - Saturday market is particularly worth seeing. But try to be there early because with every coach that arrives the fun disappears. Only in the evening will there be some peace in the streets again

    Malcesine - a picturesque holiday resort at the foot of Monte Baldo
    Malcesine is one of the most popular holiday resorts on the lake and is therefore dominated by tourism. Nevertheless, the place on the eastern shore of Lake Garda has retained a pleasant atmosphere and you can really feel at home here.

    The extremely picturesque townscape is dominated by a mighty Scaliger Castle. This towers over the medieval town center with small squares, arched passages and bumpy cobblestone paths, almost all of which lead to the old port.

    To the south of it begins the beautiful promenade along which you can walk to the lush Val di Sogno peninsula - past several beautiful bathing areas. There is a beach to the north of the village, but bathers share it with surfers and sailors.

    A cable car runs from Malcesine to the Tratto Spino, 1760 meters above sea level, a peak of Monte Baldo. Up here there is a fabulous view of the lake embedded in mountain ranges. The mountain station is the ideal starting point for hikes or mountain bike tours in the huge mountain range.

    A great offer from the municipality is the bus service, which was set up especially for holidaymakers in the summer months. The tourist bus leaves Malcesine every hour and takes you to the cable car on Monte Baldo. Tickets can be bought on the bus or in restaurants, shops and partner hotels.

    One of the most beautiful places on Lake Garda. The sunset behind the mountains on the west side is also spectacular.
