Slightly off the hustle and bustle of tourism, the old small town of Lonato is located in the hinterland of Desenzano, in the morenic hills. Although only about 5 km from the beaches of Lake Garda this place seems to have been somewhat forgotten, a fact why this location is very attractive for a lot of people to settle down in.
As can almost be expected for an Italian small town, there are a castle and a whole series of other historic monuments worth seeing. Just after 9 km from the Desenzano exit off the motorway one gets to Lonato and the incorporated villages of Barcuzzi, Centenaro, Esenta, Maguzzano, Sedena.
It is a perfect location for all those who love Lake Garda but are trying to avoid the hustle and bustle of tourism. All amenities needed for everyday life can be found in this small town, which is about 80 km from Bergamo airport.
