On the western shore of Lake Garda is the small and characteristic village called Limone: there are two parking options, one covered and the other discovered facing the lake and next to the pebble beach. Walking towards the center you will find one of the many fountains of Limone and the beautiful floral arrangements that separate the pedestrian street from the port area to that of the restaurants. We will then tell you about Limone sul Garda.

The historic center of Limone is full of paved alleys, shops and ancient craft shops specialized in goldsmiths and leather goods. A classic souvenir of this pretty lake country is lemon-scented soap, or a bottle of limoncello or olive oil (olive cultivation is also widespread).

Walking through the narrow streets a curious thing are the ceramic tiles placed on the walls of the buildings that indicate the civic numbers, squares and streets painted with images of lemons (yellow lemons everywhere!). Limone sul Garda is a nice place to visit is the small church of San Rocco which is located along an uphill road from where you can photograph picturesque views of the village and the lake.

You get lost walking between stone houses, on the sides of which descend plants, porches, flowering balconies, small shops. Very suggestive is also the old port, where some boats with a thousand colors are moored.

It seems to be holidaying in an ancient fishing village that, on wicker chairs, are busy weaving their nets, ready to fish. The main attraction is the terraced lemons located to the north that can be photographed very well if you arrive by boat.

These ancient buildings are made of stone columns and wooden beams used for the cultivation of lemons, if you want you can visit the castel lemon house. Thanks to the pleasant climate enjoyed by the western part of Lake Garda, Limone sul Garda is the northernmost area where the yellow citrus grows.
