Il lungolago di Bardolino

about Bardolino

Hotel Capri is in Bardolino on Lake Garda

The mild climate, the lake and the fertile hills have always been Bardolino's assets. It was these same resources that caused this territory to be claimed by emperors, monks and noble families who built castles, palaces and monasteries. Throughout the centuries an extraordinary historical and artistic heritage has formed revealed today by the towers and remains of the Scaliger walls, by the beautiful churches (small masterpieces of Romanesque art) and by the garden parks and Venetian style villas. Today Bardolino has become one of the most renowned Italian tourist resorts.

Here you'll find both the modern and the antique. To accommodate tourists in Bardolino and Cisano along the lake and at Calmasino in the hills, there are over fifty hotels, numerous summer residences and a dozen large camping sites. Restaurants use the local fish and agricultural crops for their needs. Lake fish is used in dozens of dishes, accompanied by the famous Bardolino red or rosč (Chiaretto) wines, as well as by the light flavoured olive oil. Behind Bardolino is Cavaion Veronese, land of soft rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves. The chroniclers of the fourteenth century sustained that the best wines in Italy came from here. Today's gourmands consume the wine and olive oil with the local asparagus. A small museum in Cavaion has gathered precious prehistoric and Roman finds. Hotels and facilities for leisure time activities welcome the tourist just a few minutes from the lake.
