TORRI DEL BENACO, THE TOWN OF TINY ROADS

It is the tiny roads, known as “vicoli” that make a dive into the lake that attract the attention while one is roaming around Torri del Benaco: VICOLO CIECO, VICOLO BENACO, VICOLO POLIZIANO. The air one breathes here is that of other times. A curious fact: before the year 1000, the Garda Lake was called, “Benaco”,

a word of Celtic origin that means “of the many promontories” and which indicates a geographic position surrounded by mountains and hills.
