Formerly called Piazza Granda and then Piazza Benacense, this piazza is the heart of both the old and modern town. It is the location for the Office of the Podestà and the Town Hall, the Torre Apponale a several houses of the nobility. The arcades dating back to the period of Scaligera rule, which close off the piazza towards the harbour and the lake, used to house the markets and shops.

Lots of tourists , but lots of cafes to sit and people watch. Even though there was a timetable for the ferries, it did not seem to be being followed . I may just have caught a bad day.

Lovely part of lake garda. The breeze off the lake made the got weather bearable. The colour of the water was magical. The steep mountains climbing straight up from the lake-everything about this town was just great.

One of the most beautiful views you'll ever see which can be enjoyed in the sunshine with a local spritz drink and then in the evening while local talent play their music. Perfect!
