Gardone can look back on a colourful and fascinating history, something that today is reflected in its magnificent buildings. Some of the most beautiful luxury-hotels with a long-standing tradition are located in Gardone or one of the neighbouring villages, Fasano sotto and sopra and Gardone sopra. Other beautiful residential areas can be found in the villages of Morgnaga, San Michele and Tresnico.
In the past, Gardone was a popular resort among VIPs, who especially in winter came here to enjoy the mild climate and fresh air. A regular guest was, among others, the Nobel prize winner Paul Heyse. Gardone is a location for elegant guests rather than sport freaks and disco fans. Everything needed for every day life can be found here, there are also a couple of good restaurants, some of them even open in the winter months.
It is 27 km to the Desenzano exit off the motorway, and about 90 km to Bergamo airport.
