Malcesine is a small town on the eastern shore of Lake Garda in northern Italy. It’s a picturesque tourist resort with cobbled lanes and a castle, crammed between the blue lake waters and the massive mountain ridge behind, Monte Baldo. In the summer months Malcesine is a hive of innocent hedonism, packed with pottering holiday-makers gorging on ice cream and sun-seekers draped along the lake shore. It’s not all laziness, however, as the town’s ferry connections to other lakeside resorts make it a good base for sightseeing and the cable-car running up to Monte Baldo is a magnet for cyclists, walkers and paragliders.

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy, and Malcesine lies towards the narrow and mountainous northern end, often compared to a fiord. The town is situated at the edge of the Veneto region, in the province of Verona. ‘Malcesine’ is a good exercise in Italian pronunciation: the name is pronounced approximately MalCHESinay.” Origianlly posted here: http://www.italyheaven.co.uk/veneto/malcesine.html
