Escorted Rail Tours to Malcesine

Among Lake Garda's most dramatic scenery

Malcesine, positioned at the foot of the dramatic Monte Baldo, is a popular town at the northern end of Lake Garda where the lake resembles the Norwegian fjords. At this narrow stretch of Lake Garda, dramatic cliffs rise steeply from the very edge of the water. Malcesine is home to the 14th century Scaligeri Castle, which dominates the town. From the town there is a cable-car that carries passengers up to the top of the mountain for incredible views of the lake and countryside beyond.

Ridging along much of the eastern side of Lake Garda, Monte Baldo separates the lake from the Val d'Adige, the valley of the river which flows through Verona. The cable car climbs from 328 feet (100 metres) to 5741 feet (1750 metres) in around 15 minutes with a break in the middle. On the upper section the cars revolve slowly to give a spectacular panorama of the lake and its surrounding mountains.

Sirmione on Lake Garda
Anonymous
“I very much enjoy the holiday but my enjoyment was spoiled by the fact that two people who clearly were unsuited to a holiday which involved changing trains and with a 700 metre walk over cobbles to get between the nearest coach pickup point had apparently been told that they would have no problem with this holiday. It also involved our rep. and another passenger taking their luggage for them.
