Nice place with a few restaurants and bars (sitting outside), during summer season cultural happenings, boat jetty for all places on the lake. A bit crowded at lunch time due to day tourists, but especially lovely late afternoon and evenings

Each time I enter the Palazzotto, the art is different, first of all the building is a wonder of history... and then of course the exhibitions are always worth a visit. Speak to the artists, take the time, even if you don't think it your...More
