Valeggio sul Mincio Off The Beaten Path: 34 reviews and 53 photos

by matcrazy1

Streets of Valeggio sul Mincio,outside limited traffic zone, have very narrow sidewalks. The similar houses, usually painted in yellow, white or orange are two or maximum three floor and put in a row one by one.

Notice that both in Italian old palaces and in residential houses lower floors are often taller than the higher ones. The most rich or important people had to be housed on ground floor in the past, exactly oposite to contemporary times.

Windows are always equiped with wooden shutters. Cornices crowning front facades are relatively large, so, pedestrians walking on a narrow sidewalk below are protected against rain.
