Lazise is a small village with very ancient origins, laying on the east shore of Lake Garda. In 983, the Holy Roman Emperor Otto II granted Lazise the right to fortify itself and establish trading rights. This is the reason why Lazise is universally recognized as the “first free Italian community”.

The most important monument of the town are the castle (Castello Scaligero) and the ancient walls surrounding the village. The castle, which can not be visited anymore as perilous and in need of repair, announces Lazise to the visitors with its high tower, and entertaines them during all their stay.

You will enjoy walking in Lazise, discovering new streets, doing shopping, eating something in the many restaurants and pizzerias or just taking a drink at some bar on the promenade. And ...don’t loose the busy and picturesque local market throught the streets of Lazise every Wednesday!
