Located on the eastern shore of the lake between Garda and Lazise, the town of Bardolino lies over the hillside rising from the lake shore to the moraine hill that separates Lake Garda from the Adige Valley, in the point where the Adige river flows into the Padana Plain.

The name of this town could derive from a Latin word of Gaelic origin, Bardus(cantor) or from the German patronym, Pardali or Bardali, referring to the daughter of king Aulete, the founder of Mantova.

The territory of Bardolino is nestled inside the wide morainic amphitheater of Lake Garda: it rises on sedimentary soils deposited during the Quaternary period, in a glacial and fluvio-glacial environment. These deposits were mainly caused by the Riss and Würm glaciations and subsequently eroded by the denudation and leaching of the slopes. These last processes caused the formation of an undulating morphology of the land that gently slopes towards the lake.

The economy of the area is mainly based on tourism, with a particular focus on the hospitality sector. There are many different accommodation solutions (hotels, campsites, summer houses), as well as interesting food and wine proposals and sporting events specifically designed to improve tourist offer.

Very important is also the production of wine, with the Denomination of Origin Bardolino coming from the name of the town.

Local economy actually originates from the dual nature of the area, that is the lake and the hills. The town has experienced a 360-degree economic and social development, with a very active approach, always ready to satisfy the needs of both tourists and citizens and never feeling arrived but constantly ready to improve. Walking by the streets of Bardolino you can instantly breathe the sparkling positive energy that animates this place
