Garda and its Lake
We, the Mirandola family, are proud of our town which – from a small fishing village – has turned into the tourist resort that today is appreciated by many vacationers. the small historic center enclosed between palazzo Fregoso and the clock tower, offers numerous bars and restaurants. For those who stay even just a few days, garda gives the possibility of pleasant excursions on the Rocca di Garda with its ancient hermitage or the valley of the mills. The pride of the entire lake is the suggestive Punta San Vigilio that can be reached on foot, with a walk directly on the beach. The weekly market on Friday is definitely a regular event for tourists to buy gifts and souvenirs. To purchase the delicate oil and the renowned wines of the area, it is sufficient to make a short trip between the green of the olive trees and the vineyards where there are oil mills and cellars that offer the tasting of their products. The central position on the territory offers the possibility to easily visit the towns of the lake and the nearby cities.
