Lovely little square to hang out in for a while but watch out for all the cyclists who think it's appropriate to storm through at 30kph!

Beautiful town and square at the north of Lake Garda. Typical Italian in every way and lots of bars, restaurants and things to see. Departure point for many of the boat trips

Great place to sip coffee and people watch all through the day. Pleasantly surprised by prices, we were expecting higher at the cafes on the square (where you can often find free wifi too). We were there when a classic car rally came through.
