    area around promenade

    Desenzano is pretty small townlet in the winter times and very crowded in the summer and during the weekends. It offers lovely promenades, several kilometres long, along the lakeshore and the one which stretch along main shopping area.
    There are dozens of cafe-bars, all over the place, where one can seat and people watcing while sipping his drink or irresistible esspresso.

    The old core of the town

    Another lovely scene from the old core of the town. The houses are very close to each other, makes you feel like in the Mediterranean area. There are many archways around, connecting the houses in endless row.

    Santa Claus

    The human imagination have no limits, especially in Italy. This small pupet of Santa Claus is climbing up to the terrace with bag ful of presents. Very exciting scene, especially for the kidds. Aren't we all kidds, at least for the Christmas times.

    The Garda swans

    The swans

    Yes, this swans looks almost domesticated when hanging around the place. They are also friendly, but only when feeding them. It is, however, not recommendable teasing them because they don't hesitate to attack if so.

    Do we turn left, do we turn right...

    miles of waterfront to walk

    What Ma Kettle and I enjoy most about Desenzano, is the fact it is pedestrian friendly. It is a people town, and the biggest decision we face when we leave our hotel, is, go left, or go right ??

    just sit and enjoy nature

    At any time of day or evening, couples sit quietly, side by side, watching the waves lap against the rocks.

    Nothing can be as peaceful.
