Up to 2.500 people live in this village, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, on the south-western shore of Lake Garda. A huge fortress on a hill dominates the village with its picturesque harbour.
Not only the entertainment provided by various water sports attracts visitors, there is also a panoramic road through the Valtènesi wine-growing region, which tempts the guest with spectacular views over the lake.
From Desenzano it is a mere 11 km to Moniga del Garda, where those who settle down here permanently do not miss out on anything. Bergamo airport, famous for international low cost flights, is about 85 km from Moniga. The high percentage of 15 percent of registered permanent residences of foreigners speaks for itself.
