We have been reading or watching on TV documentaries about Borghetto sul Mincio for years. Finally we made our visit detouring from Isola della Scala to Marmirolo. Parking is on payment and there is a short walk to the old gate. For us the village deserves the excellent rate as it is quaint, original, tidy, rich of history, romantic and... More

If you want a small quaint Italian romantic place, you have to visit this place. Not far from Verona by car, it seems like a place where Romeo and Juliet could have gone on a date. The river runs through the small fort area. Picture this -a small church, colorful buildings, shops, gelato, small field with horses grazing in an... More

Good small cafes and restaurants, most of them have terraces on the river. Parking out of the village and tourists are not allowed to park except in the most far parking lot (1 Euro/hour) on an empty place.I think that the tourists are not welcomed.

A beautiful old town surrounded by a large park an a lot of water. Many bicycle riders in the park trails during the weekends. On sunny days you can spend a whole day traveling in and around the town.

Borghetto is a small village down Vallegio sul Mincio. It has a large number of water mills and a nice bridge where during June all restaurants install tables for thousands of guests

This is a very nice place to visit, try to choose a sunny day. Better skip the weekend. The old place not far from the castle is really nice. These old houses on the river, the blue- greenish Garda lake water in the river- it's really nice. Eat their raviolis, they are fabulous everywhere! And spending half an hour sitting... More

Do not miss the tiny hamlet of Borghetto on the Mincio River about 10 minutes from Gallo del Pille bed and breakfast - a little village built on the river with water-powered mills and beautiful views over the river. We are thinking of bringing our bikes next time because the rolling countryside is perfect for long rides of moderate difficulty.... More

Water, water everywhere? We stayed in one of the cottages for a week. Beautiful charming village with very high ratio of restaurants per area! It is very busy with tourists on the weekend. Quiet during weekdays in late October.

After running from one place to another, we have stopped at borghetto for a picnic and 15 min. of strolling between the 10 houses of the village. There is no reason to come here especially.
