TREMOSINE, THE TERRACE ON THE LAKE

The high plane of Tremosine is known as the “terrace of the lake” for its panoramic position at 414 mt in altitude, which allows one to admire the entire Garda Lake from on high. The territory is comprised of numerous hamlets (72 square kilometres), having Pieve as its capital (from which one can enjoy a breath-taking panorama).

The hamlets are miniscule, tranquil, and they lived isolated from one another until the opening of the Gardesana Road in 1931.
There was a path that was called “the harbour path”which once connected Tremosine to the harbour. Men passed over it for centuries, carrying everything imaginable on their backs: goods, oil, wood, coal, wheat, with a kind of fatigue that is hard to imagine. Looking down and thinking of these men is like imagining heroes in action.
Tremosine is part of that prestigious club of the “Most beautiful hamlets of Italy”within which only the towns that can boast a harmony and equilibrium between the beauty of the landscape, historical and artistic heritage and traditions can be found. The local culture here is waiting to be discovered by its visitors, original and curious as only places that have remained isolated from the rest of the world for years and years can be. This is part of its charm.

The report of Tremosine

It is said that Tremosine is one of the places on the lake where urban pollution is at its minimum terms and one can breathe deeply with ease. 

The roads are very narrow, no matter from where you arrive. You need to be careful because in some parts, the road is too narrow to allow two-way traffic.
