Torri del Benaco retains the charm of a medieval village nestled within the walls and towers of the Scaliger Castle, built in 1300 by Antonio della Scala and still today offers a magical atmosphere.
The Venetian palaces overlook the harbour and offer a feast for the eyes, and the view is even more spectacular seen from the lake itself, perhaps from on board one of the many ferries running to the river bank. The beauty of the old town, the mild weather and the magic that visitors can perceive, has made Torri one of the most prestigious resorts in the Riviera degli Olivi, including illustrious guests like Andre Gide, Stephen Spender, Laurence Olivier , Vivien Leigh, Maria Callas, Jacques Piccard and King Juan Carlos of Spain.
From time immemorial Torri del Benaco has cultivated vineyards and olive groves, and, along with fishing, these were the main sources of income. Today tourism is number one for the local economy and offers superb accommodations that offer cutting-edge services and a high level of service while maintaining their historic architecture. Torri is further enhanced by two charming towns, such as Pai, divided into two villages, one on the lake and one in the hills, and Albisano, a green balcony on Lake Garda, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the lake.
For sports There are many opportunities: swimming in the crystal clear lake, sailing, surfing, hiking, and mountain biking are just a few examples of sports that you can practice here.
