Dwellings
The villas and palaces of the Brescia shore of Lake Garda are real architectural and artistic gems whose beauty and splendour are still intact. These elegant but not excessive villas and palaces are often enriched with magnificent gardens giving off delicate fragrances and offer picturesque and charming views. The Vittoriale, Palazzo Feltrinelli and all the other buildings of the area comprised between Desenzano and Limone are the tangible evidence of the historical, artistic and cultural events that occurred in the area where they were built, but not only. That is why a visit to the lake villas and palaces is not to be missed: here visitors can get a sense of the historical happenings witnessed by these rooms, enjoy the breathtaking panorama as well as observe and admire the different trends and styles that characterise Italy’s varied and vibrant architectural and artistic heritage.
