Torri del Benaco is a fascinating ancient village and popular tourist resort on the Olive Riviera, surrounded by the typical medieval town walls and towers.
The hub of the town is the shell-shaped port, one of the most characteristic on the lake, surrounded by the XV century Palazzo del Consiglio di Garda, the Castle and fascinating antique homes, like the Vicari house, with its façade and typical small arcade.
Set at the foot of Mount Baldo, Torri del Benaco has an inland rich in very valuable prehistoric testimony, and the lakeside promenade and many tracks enable pleasant walks or mountain bike rides through this uncontaminated nature, which offers some breath-taking views.
Scuba divers love the floor of Lake Garda off Torri del Benaco, and it is considered perhaps the loveliest site, with the marine rocks and grand canyons where they are able to dive in relative safety.
The car and passenger ferry service from Torri del Benaco port travels to other famous towns on Lake Garda, and the Affi motorway junction makes Torri del Benaco and other tourist locations very easy to reach. The Verona international airport is just 40 km away.
