LOMBARDIA lazise

Port
Via Francesco Fontana
45° 30' 19" N - 10° 43' 51" E

After departing from the pier "Unita' d'Italia" of Peschiera, the boat re-ascends the basin along the eastern shore, covered with vineyards and olive trees, and passes the small town of Pacengo with 18th century Camuzzoni Villas, the 19th century Villa Bottonay (now Barbaro).
In less than thirty minutes, the boat brings you to Lazise where you can take in a beautiful view of the Lake with Rocca di Manerba an the left and the Sirmione peninsula to the left.

Glancing inland you will see Peschiera and the Mantuan ramification. In Lazise, the ancient Lastium, there is a castle, reinforced by the Scaligeri in the 11th century, subsequently noblemen from Verona enclosed it into a strategic and military outpost.
While agriculture and breeding made Lazise an active business center, the town has also discovered its tourist "calling". The historic center has preserved its medieval appearance thanks to the Scaligere walls, which lead to the castle, and the five towers dominated by a high donjon.
Other worthwhile visits are the 12th century Church of San Nicolo' with its 16th century bell tower near the small port, and the low, long 16th century Dogana (Customs) building which dates back to Venetian rule. Just beyond Lazise, you pass the villa "La Pergolana" a 19th century edifice which incorporates an ancient convent.
Then you will pass Cisano where you can admire the full width of the Lake as well as the 8th century parish of Santa Maria - seat of the Annual Bird Fair (September the 8th).
