Hotel La Fiorita - Lago di Garda

history between churches and museums

chiesa san rocco lago di garda

Church of San Rocco

It is located in the north of the old town, just beneath the rocks of the mountain overlooking Limone. It’s dated mid 16th century, built by the inhabitants of Limone as thanks for being saved from the contagious plague that struck in those years most of North-Italy. It seems that during this epidemy, San Rocco visited Limone. The church was then completed and enriched in the next two centuries with frescoes and with the construction of the bell tower. During the First World War it suffered extensive damage. In 1957, during restoration works, some of the ‘500 painting came to light. The catholic mass is celebrated here on the day of San Rocco (16 August). From the church patio you will have the most famous view on Limone.


Limonaia del Castèl lago di garda

Limonaia del Castèl and Oleificio (oil mill)

Of particular interest are, to have a taste of the history and tradition of this magnificent territory, the Limonaia del Castèl and the Cooperative Oil Mill Possidenti Oliveti. The “limonaia” (literally the lemon greenhouse) has been restored to its former glory and it opened its doors to the public so that you can learn the ancient art of citrus cultivation. The Oil Mill produces excellent extra virgin olive oil from Garda DOP (Protected designation of origin, PDO) that can be also purchased in the mill.


museo comboniani lago di garda

Museum of the Comboni Tesöl

Saint Daniele Comboni, founder of the Comboni Monks movement, was born in Limone sul Garda, in a poor family that lived in the house of the owner of the Limonaia Tesöl. It might be interesting to visit the small museum with the house of Comboni and the small “museum of curiosities” set up by the monks.


museo del turismo lago di garda

Tourism Museum

The Museum of Tourism, promoted and inaugurated by the local administration in March 2011, narrates through images and other documents the gradual transformation of Limone from small fishing and farming village into a touristic destination. Here you will be able to see photos of the first hotels and camping places built in Limone, and compare the modern look of the town with the old one. Some areas of the museum are also dedicated to Saint Daniele Comboni and to the apolipoproteina, a special gene discovered in some of the inhabitants of the country.


chiesa san benedetto limone sul garda

Parish Church of St. Benedetto

The Church of St. Benedetto (Benedict) is now the seat of the parish of Limone and, therefore, the place where the Catholic Eucharistic celebrations take place. It dates back to 1600. For those interested, at the church you can find many artistic and architectural information about the building. Of particular impact is the external bell tower in white stone, with a onion-shaped roof.


villa borghi limone sul garda

Villa Boghi Park

Villa Boghi is a big liberty villa, now the seat of the Municipality of Limone sul Garda and derives its name from its ancient owner, Antonio Boghi. At the beginning of '900 was the seat of the offices of the Social Republic of Salò, and some years before it was even home to the German High Command. The villa is surrounded by a wonderful garden with many species of plant, that can be enjoyed during a romantic walk along the gravel paths; nearby there is also the Limonaia, that now houses the Fisherman's Museum. In the North part of the park you can admire a bust of St. Daniele Comboni, who was born in Limone.


chiesa san pietro limone sul garda

Church of San Pietro in Oliveto

The small church is located on the road to Tremosine, in the heart of the olive grove and it dates back to 1186, thus it is evident the Romanesque style, with a single nave; inside you can admire the beautiful frescoes (one of which represents San Pietro) discovered in the late '80s, during a restoration. Mass is celebrated here on St. Peter's day (June 29). Details of frescoes are also visible on the outside walls.


museo pescatori limone sul garda

Fishermen's Museum (Limonaia Villa Boghi)

The Fishermen's Museum, developed by the municipality, is located inside the Municipal Park (formerly Villa Boghi). Here you can discover the traditions of the rural fishery and the secrets of the cultivation of lemons, with many objects and photographs, which were given as gifts from many families of Limone. Before or after the visit we recommend a walk in the park of the Villa, where there are many plants, flowers and a beautiful pergola of roses.

The hotel is great- comfortable, clean and well thought out with quiet rooms. We loved the garden and pool right outside our room.

    Beautiful place
  • "Brilliant view with generous room Positive: The view is amazing, basically you directly see the breath taking lake view from the balcony. Room size is generous and staff is very friendly. We didn't try the swimming pool and other gym facilities but would love to explore it next time visit there. One thing worth mentioning that it provides parking onsite, and it takes only 10 mins to walk to the town centre, alongside with beautiful lake view on the way! Negative: If anything, maybe the breakfast can be better based on the quality of other facilities. But it could be also that we got up very late and missed some good food. Fried egg is fresh though:)I understand this is standard checkout time but would still love to get a later checkout exception rather than 10/11am LOL"

    Brilliant view
  • "Perfect family run hotel in Limone We loved our 1 week stay here (a family of 4, with 2 young kids). The room was great, on the ground floor and with super easy access to the garden and pool. It was so nice relaxing there with brilliant views all around. It was never too busy, but had a good atmosphere all the same. All the staff were excellent and very friendly and take real pride in the hotel. Limone is only a short walk away and the lake is on your doorstep, just a few minutes away. So glad we booked here and hopefully will get to return soon. Thank you!"

    Perfect family
  • "This is the second time that we have stayed at Hotel La Fiorita and I would happily come back again and again. This is a wonderful hotel run by a wonderful family. Nothing is too much trouble. The view is stunning over the lake. You are only a short 10 - 15 minute walk into Limone and only a 2 minute walk to the lake. The pool is large and inviting with plenty of space to sunbathe around. The hotel was refurbed not that long ago and the rooms are lovely. Definitely would recommend"

    This is the second time
  • "Great hotel and location Lovely family run hotel. Stayed on a B&B basis and hotel was well placed to walk to several restaurants, the lake itself (main beach 5 mins walk away or down the side of the hotel in less than a minute you could get into the lake for a swim). Lovely pool, we had a family room with two bedrooms which was more than adequate and a great size bathroom. Pool was a good size and there was also table tennis. Limone itself is a beautiful town with some great restaurants."
