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’re 12kms from the shores of the lake, but the appeals of Montichiari: its castle, theatre, duomo and 12th Century Romanesque abbey, plus its 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.

For a charming B&B

  • The Villa San Pietro is a spacious B&B right in the heart of medieval Montichiari. There are just three rooms, but they’re each very spacious and individually decorated with antiques and family heirlooms, plus there’s a very warm welcome and plenty of activities on offer. Room start from around £70 per night.

For a romantic palazzo

  • If you want to stay in a fairytale Palazzo, then the Palazzo Novello is for you. There are 18 elegant rooms and suites featuring muslim-draped four-poster beds and huge showers. Rooms start from around £80 per night and you’re just 20mins from the shores of Lake Garda.
