By choosing to stay at Sunset Residence overlooking Lake Garda, located in Brenzone sul Garda, Veneto, you can spend your time discovering history and culture in the cities of Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige.
Castello di Malcesine
Malcesine is one of the most characteristic municipalities that overlook Lake Garda and, to complement this fantastic view, there is the Castello Scaligero. It is located in the heart of the historic center and it can also be reached quite easily through narrow alleys. Upon entering immediately on the left you can see a building called “Casermetta”, as it gave accommodation to the guards. Today the castle is home to the Museo di Storia Naturale del Monte Baldo e del Garda, which deserves a visit for its special collections. You can’t help but overlook the hill that you come across on the way to admire the fantastic panorama. Don’t miss the Sala di Goethe, the “Rivellino” courtyard, the romantic gardens and the terrace with its crenellated walls.
Cassone- The shortest river in Italy
Do not miss the hamlet of Malcesine, Cassone which extends along the north-eastern shore of Lake Garda. It is in this municipality that the river that holds the world record flows, as it is “the shortest river in Italy” as well as being one of the shortest in the world: it is the river Aril, whose length is 175 cm. Very characteristic is its pier, equipped with characteristic windmills.
If you visit Rovereto, in Trentino-Alto Adige, you can fill up with contemporary art by visiting the MART, the Museo d’Arte Moderna (Museum of Modern Art). It boasts a very rich collection that embraces all styles: Arte Povera, Conceptual Art, Futurism, Metaphysics and exhibitions whose theme changes annually. Also in Rovereto there is the Casa d’Arte Futurista (House of Futurist Art), also known as the Museo Depero, which is unique in that it is the only museum of Futurist art founded by a true Futurist in 1957 (Fortunato Depero).
Riva del Garda
A must-see in Riva del Garda is the Chiesa Dell’Inviolata, built in 1603, with a square plan characterized by a refined Baroque style that still captivates all visitors to the present day.
In Trento you can’t miss a visit to Piazza Duomo, one of the most beautiful and particular Italian urban squares. Right here overlooks the Basilica di San Vigilio, which is also the main religious monument of the capital of Trentino. Dedicated to the patron saint of Trento, the Cathedral was built in 1212 by Adamo d’Arogno. The most striking element on the outside is the characteristic rose window with the symbol of fortune. Do not miss a visit to the MUSE, the Museo delle Scienze (Science Museum).
