Malcesine on the north-eastern shore is probably the most popular resort on the Lake. The beautiful town with its narrow lanes, the small harbour as well as the pretty walkway along the Lake invite visitors to have a stroll. The Scaliger castle stands in solitary splendour on higher ground and offers a great view of the Lake. Malcesine was also the seat of the Veronese Captains of the Lake, whose palazzo today serves as the town hall. An even more superb view of the Lake and its surroundings are offered from Monte Baldo. A completely restored cable-car ascends the mountain. The station at the top end is 1800m above the Lake and an ideal starting point for hikes or mountainbike tours.
