DESENZANO DEL GARDA, THE LITTLE SAN FRANCISCO

Desenzano is defined by many as the “capital” of the Lake, lively, full of activity with its restaurants, bars, shops, the cinema and theatre. One comes to Desenzano especially for the stroll and for the “right spots”. Just like in San Francisco, in the United States, the main question that the visitors ask to the residents is: 

“Do you know where the action is?” And what activities do people do in the capitals they visit? Shopping, Eating and Coolculture.
