The enchantment of water

Lake Garda offers a gentle, regenerating climate thanks to the temperature of the water, which helps to mitigate both the summer heat and the winter cold.
Among the resorts that embellish its shores, Limone sul Garda is certainly one of the most exclusive and offers visitors every kind of scenery.

A pearl set on the lake shore

Famous for its lemon orchards, extra virgin olive oil and the longevity of its inhabitants, Limone sul Garda is one of the most popular resorts on the Brescia side of the lake, even more so than Desenzano and Salò, which are just an hour’s drive away. In the past, it could only be reached by crossing the mountain or the lake, and its economy was based on fishing and the cultivation of olives and lemons. Limone is the last town in Brescia bordering Riva del Garda.
Even today, we find traces of this agricultural economy in the pillars and walls of the orchards, the typical gardens where lemons are grown, and in the picturesque fishing harbour. A place of culture, tradition, sport and fun, Limone is the ideal destination for those seeking excitement and breath-taking views.

Food and wine

Lemons

Lemons and lemon orchards have a long history here, and are part of a centuries-old tradition that should not be missed. They were brought here from the Ligurian Riviera during the 13th century, by monks from the convent of San Francesco in Gargnano. Even today, lemons are everywhere in these parts, so savour their extraordinary goodness.
