Malcesine is a small town located on the eastern shore of Lake Garda in northern Italy. One of Italyâs most scenic spots, Malcesine is a whimsical town with cobbled lanes, medieval castles, blue lake waters and picturesque mountain ridges. Lake Garda is Italyâs largest lake. Another popular lake is Lake Maggiore, the second largest in Italy.

One of the most striking features of this quaint town is the Castello Scaligero built by the Della Scala family. Apart from being a tourist hotspot, this castle is also a favourite as a wedding location. The port in Malcesine is lined with a variety of cafes â" perfect for soaking up the plentiful sunshine and people watching. The town also has three public squares: Piazza Turazza, Piazza Cavour and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele.

Malcesine is situated on the main lakeside road, the Via Gardesana, that runs along the shores of the lake. Busses are the most convenient way to travel between the lake resorts and ferries can be used to reach Malcesine, as it is one of the major stops of the ferry route.

However, thanks to the wind from the north, the summer hot season is bearable and enjoyable, plus ideal for wind surfing on Lake Garda.
