The walk from Malcesine to Cassone via the lake path is very picturesque. My wife and myself spent a lovely morning paddling and taking in the scenery along the winding lake path. Cassone is a small town with a lovely inlet/bay with boats tethered and...More

I cycled from Val di Sogno to Cassone one day and then the next we got the tourist bus from Malcesine to Cassone (1.20 Euro each) and walked back to Val di Sogno from Cassone. Cassone is very small but pretty, with it's claim to...More
