Piazza Vittorio Emanuele is the Main Square of the town of Lazise. Its central position dominates the whole place and it is the key point for exploring this cute little place situated right on the Lake of Garda.
Besides, there are many restaurants, cafe-bars, shops and pastry-shops on the square and around it. In the hot summer nights the square is usually crowded with the tourists and the variaty of lamguages one ca here make the whole atmosphere very cosmopolitan.
This is the look of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele in early November 2003. Although it was the rainy day, a number of tourist have visited this place during that weekend.
The autumn season in Lazise is convinient for those travelers who suffered of summer heat.
Fondest memory: The colours of the square are much different then in the summer time, but the pavement under the rain looks great and very attractive.
This is Lungolago Marconi, the main promenade of Lazise usually crowded with people in the summer time. Here you can walk, observe the lake, waiting for boat which can take you on the other side of the lake, or enjoy good food in a number of good restaurants and pizzerias.
Fondest memory: As far as I am concerned, this is the most beautiful open space on whole Lago di Garda.
This is the look of the same spot at early November. It is not crowded as in the Summer time, but still there are number of tourists here especially during the weekends.
What you have to take in the consideration is the fact that not all hotells and restaurants are open in that period.
Favorite thing: Piazza V. Emanuele is the name of Lazise main square - and its certainly big. Look at the patterned floor - half expected to see giant chess pieces to appear somewhere. Anyway the piazza is found straight up from the boat harbour stop. Its lined by many cafes - great place for a spot of lunch - and several boutiques with stylish italian gear.
Favorite thing: This 12th century church is just by the small harbour. It was built by the Origenists and dedicated to San Nicolò of Bari - the patron saint of schools and seamen. It was enlarged in the mid 16th century and later used as a store, theater, barracks, home and cinema. It is now a war memorial church.
Favorite thing: Situated between Bardolino and Peschiera on southern Lake Garda is Lazise. Its name come from "laceses", meaning "place on the lake", which is exactly right! Lazise is a lovely laid back resort with a friendly air.
Fondest memory: Loved the patterns of the floor of the promenade and also in the Piazza - almost sends your eyes dotty! The wide promenade is a great place for a stroll by the lake front, watching the boats arrive. It was hard to imagine this was August and high season - not so many people there ;-)
Fondest memory: In between the boat stop and the piazza is this delightful little fishing harbour with its colourful boats bobbing on the water.
Fondest memory: The main Piazza of Lazise is so colourful - just look at these buildings. Colours like this at home just don't look the same.
Favorite thing: All around the harbour, piazza and leading off the waterfront promenade are a rabbit warren of quaint streets with cafes, shops and loads of gelato stands :-))
