Not much of the Castello Scaligero have resist during the centuries. According to the visible reminds in the old core of the town, it was of pretty huge proportions. One of the bastions, however, situated on the lakeshore, is pretty much well preserved making the emblem of the town. There are nore traces and reminds of the castle in the northern...more
The main city square is rather small but very attractive. There is parish church here, closing the northern part of the square, and the Town Hall with the clock on its rooftop situated on the right hand of the church. The square is open on its southern side all the way to the harbour.It is the scene where famous wine festivals take place; Chiaretto...more
In the small park, right next to the church of San Severo, this standing tomb-stone can be seen. It is very simple with writen text in Latin which, of course, cannot be understanding to us accidental tourists. Besides, nothing in the city guide indicates of its existing here.more
Finally, this is the look of the rear side of San Severo, where the presbytery is. Although barely decorated, it looks very impressive to me. Very tall bell tower, fascinating in its simplicity, stands alone next to the church. It is almost in disproportion with the size of the church, but only almost.more

This has to be the best bar in Bardolino. The average tourist is 60+ in this resort so if you want to mix with a younger crowd, this is where to go. The owner, Gianluca Boscolo speaks fluent conversational English and is the perfect host - and lets just say he's the kind of Italian man that atracts the women!.The bar attracts a local crowd as well...more

Bardolino on the Garda lake is a town full of hotels which mostly offer food for their guests, but there is also a number of restaurants on the streets of Bardolino, especially in the old part, near the lake. We spent there a few days at the begining of may. The number of tourists at this period was above my expectations so it was quite a challenge...more

When in Italy Im always looking for "osteria" or "trattoria", traditional Italian restaurants which usualy have excellent cuisine. The food is fresh and abundant, while the atmosphere very friendly and relaxing. Never order the dishes in osteria, let waiters to suggest you, trust me, you wont regret. Start your meal with "primo" (soup or...more
I visited Bardolino last week and didn't expect to find anywhere lively after 11.00pm or with young people, but we stumbled across this bar and discovered that it was the place to be for young people, and opens till 2.00am. The owner, Gianluca, is the typical Italian charmer you imagine, but really friendly and always finds you a table. The lady behind the bar, Julia, is lovely too, she makes a great Mojito! Its a great bar for people watching and my friend and I went every night and met loads of locals, italians, romanians, relatives of Dracula...long story...and we didn't want to come home!
Would love to go back to Bardolino.The only thing I would say is, alot of the locals don't speak any english so a phrasebook is a must and much hilarity will ensue I am sure!
Dress Code: Casual
The area of Bardolino is widely known for its production of high quality red wines. It is absolutely inconceivable to drink other wine when here then "Rosso di Bardolino".
What to buy: Red wine of course
What to pay: Depend on how much you can spend, those from 5-10 euros might be considered as good ones, from 10 euros and up you may have wine of supreme quality.
Joint VT-forces have constructed this bike especially for Claus (Cachaseiro), better known as "Biking Viking". He is planing his next big bike-tour across the Sahara and, unfortunatelly, his old bike is finished.Happy pedaling to you Biking Viking, sorry no beer left in the tins, we have finished all after hard work on the bike.more
When strolling in the old core of the town, you'll see a number of beautifully arranged balconies. There is a sort of the competition between owners of the houses and the local tourist association prized the most beautiful one at the end of the touristic season, so I was told by the locals.more

I am avoiding restaurants in front of which stands the weiters dressed like a pinguins! Have had some bad experience regarding food, atmosphere and in particularly regarding the prices.
I might be wrong of course, and this one isn't of that kind, however, I am absolutely sure it cost much more then the average restaurants in Bardolino.
Sorry guys, didn't checked menu for the prices, the pinguin look of the weiters was enough to me.

The Lake of Garda and the hills above Bardolino and Cisano are almost ideal outdoor sports areas. Just to mentione, Bardolino is the host of the most important international triathlon in Italia.
The choice of sports you can do here: triathlon, sailing, canoeing, water-skiing, paragliding, biking, horseback riding and of course swiming.
The main square of the town looks almost like a wide street. It starts at the harbour and ends by the parish church at its north end. It is the most vivid part of the town which irresistible reminds on the mediterranean places. The square is filled by numerous cafe-bars, restaurants and shops.more
