At the boundary between two regions of Lombardy and Veneto, Valeggio sul Mincio is located in the natural morainic hills that embrace the southern part of Lake Garda, then gently slope down to the Po Valley.
The valley of the Mincio, crossing the territory from north to south, offers particularly striking views, where the waters of the river linger around bends and reeds are home to numerous species of birds. The first feature that distinguishes this beautiful area definitely the thriving culinary tourism, synthesis of a kitchen that is a little Venetian with a touch of Lombardy, and boasts forty restaurants with a total seating capacity of six thousand.
An ideal place for wonderful walks and bike rides in the green along the valley of the Mincio and the hilly area, Salionze and Borghetto, enchanting medieval districts close to an ancient ford. It is home to the imposing fortifications built by ancient nobles, as the Scaliger Castle and the Visconti bridge-dam, elegant mansions, such as the Villa Maffei-Sigurtà, and the stunning Parco Giardino Sigurtà.
