Brenzone sul Garda
Located on the Venetian side of Lake Garda, Brenzone is one of the largest municipalities in the province of Verona, covering a territory of over fifty square kilometers. Dating back to the Roman era, Brenzone includes sixteen hamlets. Castelletto, Magugnano, Porto and Assenza, which still have the characteristic layout of the fishing villages gathered around the port, are the largest inhabited centres overlooking the lake. If the economy of the past was based on modest fishing occupations, tourism is the main resource today. The Riviera degli Ulivi is the beautiful location where numerous hotels, residences and campsites are situated, and where you can also have delicious lake fish dishes in the many restaurants in the area. Famous for its production of excellent DOP extra virgin olive oil, Brenzone rises from the gentle shores of Lake Garda to a two-thousand metre height of Mount Baldo, in just a few kilometers, offering various recreational and interesting sports proposals.
Prada, a contrada of Brenzone, is located in the heart of the Mount Baldo area. The crystal clear waters of the lake and the constant winds make Brenzone the ideal place for water sports, such as sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Worth a visit is the Romanesque church of San Zeno in the hamlet of Castelletto, the small church dedicated to San Nicola in Assenza and the evocative, uninhabited, medieval neighbourhood in Campo.
