The tour in short

Owned by the Counts Guarienti di Brenzone, here the extreme edge of Mount Baldo plunges into the lake and forms a peninsula that closes the Gulf of Garda to the northwest. It is the most prominent point in the water after the Sirmione peninsula. On the northern side of the peninsula is the Baia delle Sirene, a nature park with a bathing beach.

Several Bronze Age remains have been found in this area, a sign that it was populated already in prehistoric times. For example, weapons and Ruperstrian engravings with hunting themes have been found, which can now be visited and cared for by the WWF. In Roman times, on the other hand, there was a small temple consecrated to Benaco, a pagan deity, of which only a tombstone has survived to the present day and is kept in the Museo Lapidario Maffeiano in Verona.

This small prominence includes Villa Brenzone Guarienti, the work of the well-known Renaissance architect Michele Sanmicheli, a small church, a historic inn, a small harbour and the Baia delle Sirene park.

The area is moderately inhabited and characterised by a strong presence of untouched green areas, famous for the scenic views and large gardens surrounding the various historic villas. The vegetation of the area consists mainly of cypresses, agaves, oleanders, lemon trees, olive trees and shrubs; in accordance with the characteristics of the Garda shore.
