Desenzano and the Roman Villa

Desenzano

Situated on the southern shore of Lake Garda, Desenzano del Garda is a town full of picturesque corners, such as its Castle, the Porto Vecchio old port and Piazza Malvezzi.

Desenzano is located in an area that has been inhabited since prehistoric times and this is shown by the artefacts displayed in the Rambotti Museum and at the Lavagnone pile-dwelling site.

One of the most important places in Desenzano is undoubtedly the Villa Romana in the historic town centre, where you can admire exceptional mosaic floors.  The Roman Villa is managed by the same museum complex as the Scaligero Castle and the Grottoes of Catullus in Sirmione.
