Once the capital of the region, Salò’s historic town centre is lined with Liberty-style villas and a few fine examples of older palazzi. There’s also a grand Gothic duomo and some wonderful civic buildings in the Renaissance style. And then of course there are those exquisite views of Lake Garda. As far as our Gurus are concerned, the best places to stay in Salò are those with the best lake views. But their list also includes some lovely converted properties higher up the hill, towards the Monte San Bartolomeo, which were once elegant homes and villas.
