Peschiera del Garda is one of the most characteristic cities of Lake Garda: it rises above the lower Veronese shore of the lake at the point where the waters of the Garda River empty into the Mincio drainage channel, and is completely surrounded by canals. In 2017, the historic center of the city (within the walls) was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site ”Venetian defensive structures of the 16th-17th centuries“. Also within the city are two elements of another UNESCO World Heritage Site — ”Prehistoric pile settlements in the Alps“ (established in 2011). The first settlements date back to the Bronze Age (typical artifacts were found: arrowheads, swords, etc.). In Roman times, Peschiera became an important center: there is evidence from Pliny the Elder and the name Peschiera. To facilitate communication, in addition to the natural route of the lake and the river Mincio, which made it possible to quickly reach the city of Mantua, the so-called Via Gallica was built in Roman times, connecting Bergamo and Brescia with Verona, touching exactly the crossroads of Peschiera del Garda.
