Malcesine is our favorite place in Lake Garda. Not only is it a picturesque historic town, but there are also plenty of things to do.
You can go inside the famous Malcesine Castle and see some magnificent views from the top, as well as going up Monte Baldo in the cable car.
Sirmione is another historic village on Lake Garda with a castle. In fact, you enter the center of Sirmione by going through the castle entrance, which is pretty cool. We would definitely recommend visiting here whilst your in Lake Garda.
