In the Valtenesi valley, the land of vineyards and olive groves, you’ll find Padenghe, which several scholars consider the oldest town on Lake Garda. It was an important strategic outpost up until the Middle Ages, even though the first settlements date back to ancient Roman times. In fact, the Romans made Padenghe its third most important mercantile port on Lake Garda after Peschiera del Garda and Riva del Garda.
Stop to visit the medieval castle, built on top of a hill in the year 1000, that provides a wonderful view of Lake Garda. Today Padenghe is a beautiful resort town situated on a hill that slopes down to the banks of Lake Garda, with a lido, beaches, camping grounds, and hotels that offer lessons in sailing and other sports on land and water. Check out the website www.lagodigardamagazine.com: you can choose from the many accommodations in Padenghe on lake garda. Directly on your arrival in the hotels or camping grounds, you’ll pay the best guaranteed price for your stay.
In the upper section of the town of Padenghe, you can visit the Romanesque San Emiliano church built in the 12th century and the 18th century Villa Barbieri, which is currently the Town Hall and which forms a harmonious complex with the nearby Santa Maria Assunta parish church.
The real attraction of Padenghe is the landscape and the bike trails winding through the hills. You’ll come across wineries and oil mills that sell extraordinary products of quality to visitors. Stop and take a guided tour and then sample the local foods and wines. In the evening, you can dine in one of the many restaurants of the Valtenesi area that prepare delicious dishes made from local seasonal products.
