Limone sul Garda
La terra dei limoni.
The town of Limone sits on a narrow strip of land at the foot of the tall, rocky cliffs north of the Limone Riviera.
Reached in the past only from the mountains or from the lake, its economy was based on fishing and on olive and lemon-growing (it is the northernmost area where citrus fruits can be grown).
The pillars and walls of the lemon houses (the typical hot-houses where lemons were grown) and the charming fishing port that can still be seen today are echoes of this old economy.
Today Limone is one of the most popular, well-equipped tourist towns of Lake Garda, but it has preserved its small-town charm.
Its picturesque, historic town center, ancient homes, narrow streets, and ports surrounded by lush vegetation offer endless possibilities for pleasant, relaxing hikes and strolls both inland and along the lake.
