On our return from Bolzano, we took the opportunity to drive the pretty route along Lago di Garda.
We dropped into a little town called Limone sul Garda which is spectacular because it is right on the lake but also has a backdrop of high steep rocky mountains.
This little town is famous for its hillside cultivation of lemons which has been happening since the 1700s.
We stopped to taste the local limoncello and walk the narrow streets of the town. We also enjoyed a lake fish pasta lunch and a cool gelato as we cooked in the heat reflected off the rocky cliffs and the humidity rising from the lake.
The historic stone buildings, the lemon groves, the watery foreground and the rocky mountains provided some great photo opportunities...
