About Montichiari

Montichiari is the gateway to Lake Garda, a picturesque town set upon six hills which offer stunning views of Lake Garda in one direction and the Apennines in the other. You are 12kms from the shores of the lake, but the appeals of Montichiari - the castle, theatre, duomo and 12th Century Romanesque abbey, plus all the museums and galleries - make it a great, inexpensive city base for exploring the lake. Our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Montichiari tend to either be in the medieval centre of town or a little out of the centre on the pretty hills.

  • Visit the stunning Castello Bonoris in the old town.
  • Learn about the local history at the town's Lechi Museum.
  • Montichiari is home to number of fascinating religious sights such as the Duomo and a 12th century Romanesque Abbey.
  • Within easy striking distance of Lake Garda.
