And suddenly the rock faces fall away and reveal the view that stretches way over the blue of Lake Garda. Torbole sul Garda has found its place on the shore, at the foot of Monte Baldo and, now as always, knows how to captivate guests with its charm.
The enthusiasm of poets and artists in describing and painting this town can be felt immediately by visitors to Torbole sul Garda. Small, picturesque, nestling amidst spectacular scenery, Torbole sul Garda, together with Nago – the village just above Torbole sul Garda – make for wonderful photos and are a magnet for nature lovers and active holidaymakers. Torbole sul Garda was once a quiet, humble fishing village – nowadays it is lively, young and dynamic. It is not just the winds that meet here, but also windsurfers, sailors and fans of water sports in general.
The harbour, with its Vecchia Dogana and Casa Beust, is undoubtedly Torbole sul Garda’s most charming feature. It is also the ideal starting point for boat trips – but those looking upwards from the water will immediately be drawn by the trails and tracks, as the area around Torbole sul Garda is also ideal for mountain biking, climbing and hiking.
The ruins of Castel Penede in Nago perch some 200 metres above Torbole sul Garda and offer a wonderful viewpoint surrounded by a beautiful park. From here can be seen the lush greenery and vineyards of the surrounding area that between them make Torbole sul Garda and Nago so wonderfully diverse!
