Borghetto is quite delightful former fortress and mill town on the Mincio River. Largely a tourist attraction (don't go on weekends or holidays!) but relatively unspoiled. In the town next to it, tortellini is a speciallity.

The river is calm around the old castle and the reflections go deeper than imagined! The signs : Esperanza, Fidelity, Love make the place so pleasant you do want to stay more and more

Scenic views - worth a 1 hour stroll. view from the bridge is even better than the pictures. and village with the river and ducks is a great place to see.

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
