It is such a pleasure to stroll through the narrow streets of Torri del Benaco with its many cafes, ice cream shops, small delicacy stores, along the teardrop-shaped harbor all the way to the church and fortress. The picturesque town is known to tourists, but has kept a nice low key mood.
Every Monday there is a weekly market along the lake shore with tiny market stalls lining up. Trophy collectors and bargain hunters will surely have a good time: summer dresses and swimwear, Thomas Mann straw hats and Tod’s shoes at affordable prices, espresso makers, and pottery, delicious Fritti Misti (“mixed fried”), fish, cheese and sausage.
When it gets all quiet on non-market days, we recommend you enjoy a cup of cappuccino or a drink on the terrace of hotel Gardesana overlooking the fortress, Lake Garda and the beautiful harbor with its tiny boats and plane trees.
