On the squares in the old town, you can enjoy Italian coffee and let the midday heat pass before heading for the Grottoes of Catullus, a once magnificent manor house at the northern end of the promontory. The remains from Roman times are surrounded by picturesque small olive groves.
Lake Garda's largest island, the Isola del Garda, situated off the western shore, is privately owned but can still be visited. Here you will find a villa in the style of the Venetian neo-Gothic. Its many lemon trees, magnolias and agaves, however, give you the feeling of having landed in paradise. Lake Garda is also one of the best mountain bike and wind surfing spots in Europe. By boat you can easily reach the northern shore and the towns of Riva del Garda and Torbole, where everything is about water sports.
