This charming tiny village is about a three minute drive from Valeggio sul Mincio between Verona and Mantova. It is likely one of the prettiest little villages in this part of Italy. There were a number of restaurants in the village - one was right at the river's edge and apparently has a very good reputation. It is a very... More

It's really small, but it's so cute, with all its houses (old water mills) on the river, the ancient dam-bridge, perhaps a couple of shops, and the start of a nice walk (that could probably be quite long) along the river Mincio, towards Mantova. Didn't try the restaurants.

This village consists out of three streets, some restaurant and a river. During the day loaded with tourists (most of them only on the bridge and not in the village), but in the evening and at night a very cool place to hang out. There are only a few hotels in Borghetto (which are expensive), which means that most of... More

Arguably one of the most picturesque of Italian inland villages. Houses and restaurants jut out into river Mincio and weir. The castle @ nearby Vallegio overlooks the village as does the beautiful Mediaeval bridge. A number of high class restaurants, despite its small size.

Everything is said and written... I was one of those people who concentrate the north side of the expressway, the Garda lake area, you know Sirmione, amusement parks, hot springs, lakeside camping but I'm really glad that eyed the south side of the expressway, this time... This is a historical village because of its Scaliger and Visconti domination in the... More

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.
