  • Chiesa di San Severo

    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.

Bardolino Nightlife

  • by shelley9735 Written Aug 26, 2008

    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!

    Rosso di Bardolino

    by croisbeauty Updated Jan 8, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    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.
