Bardolino is one of Lake Garda’s main tourist destinations. It is located on the eastern side of the lake, 30 km from Verona. Behind Bardolino lie the gentle slopes of the Morainic hills, the area where the wine of the same name, Bardolino, is grown. Bardolino is an ideal place for holidaying and leisure time, because of its strategic position, in the centre of major art, culture and gastronomic trails.
