Desenzano del Garda

Desenzano - one of Garda's southern resorts

Desenzano is one of the bigger towns on the wider lower part of Lake Garda, with over 20,000 inhabitants. It is situated in the southwest corner along the southern lake shore next to Sirmione and at the start of the road which heads up the western side of the lake. As such it is one of the most popular resorts for visitors from the northwestern part of Italy.

Desenzano was once an important Roman trading point and was then used by the Venetians as one of their power bases to control the lower end of the lake. More information:

The hotel accommodation is spread out all over the town, with the more popular areas along the lakeshore to the east and northwest. More information:
