Montichiari is a small, scenic Italian town, situated close to the southern shores of Lake Garda, within the Lombardy region, to the north of the country. Visitors looking to spend their holidays in Montichiari will find that there is a great choice of self catering accommodation available for rental within the town. There are spacious apartments and townhouses, as well as chalets and villas, many enjoying glimpses of Lake Garda.
Many visitors spending their holidays in Montichiari choose the town as a base for exploring the stunning scenery which surrounds Lake Garda, the largest expanse of freshwater in Italy. As the town is several miles from its shores, tourists will find that prices for accommodation and facilities are more competitive and the town has a more relaxed atmosphere, when compared to the busier resorts located right on its shoreline. As well as the many delights to be enjoyed in and around Lake Garda, such as water sports, pleasure cruising and swimming, there are a number of historical attractions to be admired in the town itself. Perhaps the biggest draw is the imposing Bonoris Castle, which dominates the town’s skyline.
Of course, most tourists spending their holidays in Montichiari will be drawn to the many tourist attractions and amenities to be found on the shores of Lake Garda. However, the nearby cities of Brescia and Verona will attract those tourists who have an interest in all things cultural and historical. Brescia boasts numerous styles of architecture in its many historical landmarks and buildings, from Renaissance and Romanesque palaces to Gothic churches. The city is also renowned for its 72 public fountains. Slightly further afield, Verona is equally well worth a visit, due to its artistic heritage. Verona also boasts more than its fair share of architectural gems and much of the city has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.
