Today’s tour starts appropriately enough – paying tribute to the patron saint of travelers in the charming little church of San Giacomo di Calino and greeting the fishermen in the harbor next door plying their centuries-old trade. From here, your expert local guide and driver will take you through the beautiful Valley of the Paper Mills past its poignant relics of the paper industry that thrived here from the 14th to the 20th century on your way to the ferry port. The tour continues northward on the eastern shore as the lake narrows and the scenery morphs from Mediterranean plains to pre-Alpine heights, with mighty Monte Baldo – your next destination – the lake’s highest height. At its foot, Malcesina appears with its 13th-century Scaligero castle sitting proud on a rocky promontory, its winding warren of cobbled lanes inviting a stroll and its pretty piazzas just begging for you to have a coffee or an ice cream. Then the high-tech Monte Baldo cable car takes you from 300 meters above sea level to about 5,700, with its carriage continually revolving to give everyone the best of the panoramic views. Once back at lake level, make your way back to the eastern shore, this time by way of the northernmost tip, stopping off in one of the characteristic lakeside villages to join the locals in the typical aperitivo of the region –a Spritz. Cin Cin!
