About Torri del Benaco

On the eastern shore of Lake Garda, Torri del Benaco is a pretty town behind a tiny little harbour overlooked by a wonderfully atmospheric 14th Century Scaligero castle. The castle was built using the town’s original 10th Century fortified wall. This lack of wall improves the view from properties which have now been converted to become some of the best places to stay in Torri del Benaco. Some of these were the 16th Century palazzi built during the town’s most prosperous age and arranged along the town’s cobbled main street.

What not to miss

  • Castello Scaligero is a beautiful 14th century castle that now functions as a museum focusing on the town and lake's history.
  • Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo is astunning church famous for some magnificent painted ceilings as well as altars by Tomezzoli and Benedetti.

Some of the other properties on our Guru's list of the best places to stay in Torri del Benaco can be found just out of town on the hills overlooking this little charmer.
