Peschiera del Garda

Peschiera del Garda is a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its impressive Venetian fortifications. The town was founded by the Scaliger family and has a network of canals.  It is situated at the mouth of River Mincio that flows from Lake Garda towards the surrounding moraine hills.

Established as a defensive outpost until the Napoleonic era and the Italian wars of independence, today Peschiera has a thriving historic centre and you can also visit the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Frassino and ride along the cycle path following the river to Mantua.
