HIKING LAKE GARDA - BARDOLINO EREMO DEI CAMALDOLESI
Starting from the fire station in Bardolino follow the Lake promenade towards Garda. Immediately after the camping Continental, turn right into the road leading to the regional road. Go past this and go uphill to the base of the castle rock, where you turn right now. After 400 meters on the right you will find the Institute Tusini of the Salesians. Here turn left into a path that will lead you directly to the castle rock, San Giorgio, where is the Hermitage of the Camaldolese monks and then continue to the Rocca Vecchia.
After admiring the landscape, continue walking until you reach the pass between the two castle rocks. Here you can choose between two options: either you go up to Bardolino on the same route, you have committed going uphill, or you go to Garda on the path that leads you at first to the Madonnina del Pigno and then, passing behind of the parish church of Garda, to the lake. To Bardolino, you can either go back on foot, following the lakeshore towards south, or by public bus, after a visiting tour of the village.
