We took the boat from Malcesine to Limone in the morning, spent some time exploring the lemon castle and the history of the lemon industry, which no longer exists there. We had lunch and caught the ferry back.

Small boat 9Euro return every hour. Excellent and plenty of boats to get back. Lim one very interesting particularly if it's market day. Quite a few shops and restaurants by the harbour. Well worth a half day out

We travelled from Malcesine on a day trip. We always do this trip, and it still holds lots of interest, interrupted by a lovely lunch before heading back.
