It is incredible that this place isn’t listed in any top 10 things to do when in the Lake Garda region. It is a small village in Canale a few miles from Riva del Garda, with many historical buildings and quaint cobblestone walkways to meander...More

Amazing mediaeval village with steep narrow cobbled streets linked with arches. Some doors could be original they look that old. As a mediaeval film set very little would need changing. People still live in the village though not all the houses are occupied. There is...More

What an amazing,small and picturesque village.Great for a little walk, visiting little museums of local artists . There is only 1 small bar , where you can sit in the square for a nice relaxing drink. the place seems unreal. Fantastic.

Small medieval town, a bit hard to find, you need to follow BORGO MEDIOEVALE CANALE DI TENNO. You do not find tourists, it is very quiet, old houses built in stone. Really worth it if you are in the area

This medieval village was amazing to visit- the old winding streets are unlike anything I have ever seen. The buildings are well kept and the views from the small artists house in the village were very impressive. This town only has 50 residents so it...More
