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.

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
