Those, who prefer to become integrated in “bella Italia” and want more than their acceptance as tourists, have come to the right place: Valeggio sul Mincio. This might be a reason why the percentage of foreigners is relatively high (13,10 percent) for a town with 14.000 inhabitants not directly on the shores of Lake Garda.
Valeggio is a historical Italian town with charm and a very good infrastructure. There is a well-equipped hospital with a renal dialysis ward.
Looked at from a culinary point of view, the small town on the turquoise green river Mincio is particularly famous for its “Tortellini di Valeggio”: wafer-thin and irresistible. The “Festa del Nodo d’Amore”, on the 600 m long “Ponte Visconteo”, overlooking Borghetto, the romantic village with its mills, situated at the bottom of the dominating Scagliger fortress, year after year attracts 4.000 visitors, only about 1.000 of these are tourists.
