Malcesine: information and advice

The comune of Malcesine lies in Verona province in the north-eastern part of Lake Garda, on the border between Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige. In the upper Garda, then, but well-connected from north and south by the Gardesana Orientale road, the comune of Malcesine offers all the perfect ingredients for a camping holiday between lake and nature. Ideal both for activities on the lakeshore and excursions in the natural surroundings of Mount Baldo, this Veneto comune, with fewer than 4,000 inhabitants, also offers a significant historical and cultural heritage, such as the fascinating Malcesine Scaligero Castle or the Palazzo dei Capitani, today home to the town hall.

Beaches and Sports in Malcesine

Staying at a campsite or tourist village in Malcesine means you can choose between the pleasures of relaxation and those of an active holiday, thanks to the many opportunities in an area that includes some gorgeous beaches on Lake Garda and the luxuriant nature of Mount Baldo. Two of Malcesine's beaches particularly stand out: Spiaggia Val di Sogno and Spiaggia di Navene. Both offer the chance to practise some of Lake Garda's most popular sports, like sailing and windsurfing. Spiaggia Val di Sogno also boasts three very special islands: Isola del Sogno, Isola degli Ulivi and Isola del Trimelone.

Lake Garda's nature emerges in all its might with Mount Baldo, ideal for climbing, paragliding and excursions from trekking to mountain biking, or simply appreciating the views from the top, over Malcesine and the lake. For its part, the Mount Baldo cableway makes the spectacle accessible to the less athletic too.

Monuments in Malcesine

As mentioned above, the town of Malcesine has two main monuments, the Scaligero Castle and the Palazzo dei Capitani. The Scaligero Castle in particular is a symbol of the town and an incredible sight, its impressive walls dropping sheer to the waters of Lake Garda, almost as if to encircle and protect the town. In addition, Malcesine's campsites and villages offer the opportunity to spend days exploring the churches in the hinterland, but also to seek entertainment off site with events and night clubs.
