Torri del Benaco, Lago di Garda: 14 reviews and 22 photos

  The castle of the Scaligieri
by Anjutka

The ancient Roman name of the lake was "lacus Benacus", this old name is still in several topographic names around the lake while the 1000 years younger name "Garda" is of Germanic origin. Torri del Benaco is a resort typical for the Veneto part of the lake, consisting of a small charming old centre and a castle (on the Southern walls of the castle are lemon trees growing) and lots of family run small hotels around. From here a car ferry crosses the lake to Maderno at the Lombardia shore.
