Laid-back lakeside life
If you dream of care-free wandering on the waterfront, interspersed with timely pit stops at local cafés and trattorias, Salò is for you. In a sheltered bay on the west bank, it has the lake at its feet and mountains to its back. It’s one of the largest lake towns, so you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to dining options. Yet despite its size, Salò retains plenty of old-world charm. Start at the Torre dell'Orologio, the town’s famous historic clocktower, and explore the network of narrow streets and piazzas before you reach the renowned waterfront.
