Lazise can boast a really interesting record: it was the first of the free Italian municipalities, obtaining autonomy by Emperor Otto II, more than a thousand years ago, in 983.
Hence the more recent history of the country, from the medieval period of which traces remain in the castle and in Scaliger walls, then to the Venetian era, which has left a very important relic in the wonderful old customs house, now used as a conference centre.
The territory of Lazise includes the lakeshore and a vast hinterland consisting of morainic hills that gently descend towards the lake, between olive groves and vineyards dotted with cypress rows.
The hotels are located in the historic center, leaving the structure of the village unchanged, as well as in the surrounding area.
Lazise’s offers include, in addition to the hotels, also complementary facilities such as bed & breakfast, room rentals and apartments, camping sites and holiday resorts.
The area is perfect for traditional lake sports, quiet walks, cycling or horseback riding on panoramic trails with gentle slopes.
The two suburbs of Colà and Pacengo offer a stay that combines the proximity of the lake with full immersion into rural and agricultural life, with some farm centres offering their own farm produce.

We thought about a site where the main hiking trails could be listed together with walk paths and mountain-biking trails, that meander between coves with beautiful beaches and blooming landscapes between the green lush of the olive trees and the blue of the lake. An invitation for those who love sports in the open air to plunge in the nature of the Veneto side of Lake Garda and its rich hinterland: a multifaceted experience that is never allowed to become boring.
The vast and varied territory of the Riviera degli Olivi offers routes for all needs and for all levels. Paths that will make you discover natural jewels, historical villages that follow one another in breathtaking views, castles, coves, shores, hills and mountains where the impressive and uncontaminated nature reveals itself through trails and routes marked among the woods. Choose the trip that suits you most and discover a territory which is easy to fall in love with due to the sensations it can cause thanks to its perfumes, colours, the climate, the flavours of the wine and food tradition and the fascinating and unforgettable sunsets on the lake.
Everyone will have the possibility to take lovely walks t or cycle on our beautiful lakefront.
Thanks to the beauty of the landscape and to the welcome of hoteliers from the Garda area, it will always be a great experience!
