    Gate to Lazise

    On foot visitors come in through the small town of one of the three city gates in the well-preserved city wall with battlements. Worth seeing is the impressive Scaligeri fortress with six towers and steep walls in the park of Villa Bernini (both privately owned).

    Porta San Zeno

    Porta San Zeno (the San Zeno Gate), a portition of the City Walls, is the main gateway into the old core of the town.
    In case you are traveling by car, I suggest you to park your car on a huge parking place western side from this gate. There you can enter in the old core through Porta del Lion which is located next to the Castello Scaligero.

    Chiesetta di San Nicolo

    The little church of San Nicolo is the ancient church on Lago di Garda. It was designed in a very simple Romanesque style dating back to 12th century.
    Do not miss visiting the interior of the church because it preserved precious frescoes painted by the artist of great Giotto's school.

    Scaliger Castle

    This castle is from the 11th century and in summer time you can attend to night concerts on it. We did not visit inside, we just walked along the little streets and the walls that surround the city.

    elegant church building in Lazise

    Ok meandering back down to the piazza now but a quick stop to look at the church before some lunch. This elegant white squarish church was on a small piazza with narrow roads around, so difficult to get a wide angle pic. It was a pleasant change to see this style compared to all the gothic ornate churches we had seen in Verona. The church is dedicated to Sn Zeno, the patron saint of water and fishing.

    entrance to Lazise

    Follow the narrow lane alongside the walls and you will soon come to the entrance gateway to Lazise - from the road end as opposed to the harbour. From here it then heads past the church and back down to the piazza..

    Castle

    Castle Tower

    The castle built in 9th century gave protection against the Hungarian invasions, it was modified and reinforced over the centuries.
    The coats of arms of Bartolomeo and Antonio Della Scala are still visible on the two entrances, even though Emperor Maximilian had them defaced. "La giustizia del mondragòn la ghe dà torto a chi g'ha rasòn' (The justice of the dragon punishes he who is right) was what the people of Lazise used to say. This proverb, which referred to the coat of arms with the dragon that was displayed on the castle walls, aptly expresses their distrust of tyranny.

    The boulevard between the city and the lake Garda is the eye catcher of this village. Many restaurants and bars are here. Also the harbor at the end of the boulevard is very nice and historic.
