  • Nothing Special

    I've visited this little Roman church with a group while on excursion. In my honest opinion, I didn't think it was too special. By the time we got there, the skeleton of the church was shown.I was rather disappointed with how it looked. It looked a little bit left aside and many of it's decorations were absent. Perhaps in time it will receive the...

    Bottega di vino: Rose di Bardolino

    by croisbeauty Updated Nov 21, 2015

    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.

    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.
