Torri Guide

Torri del Benaco is a pretty resort, with the town itself being a main attraction. Enticingly peaceful, this charming old town has a maze of traffic-free streets where you can explore and discover shops, gelaterias and inviting delicatessens - all without the crowds of some of Lake Garda’s other resorts. In the evenings, stroll around the colourful harbour and have a drink or ice cream at a lakeside cafe, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and impressively floodlit castle. Read more on where to eat and drink on our Restaurants and Bars pages.

Torri is an idyllic place to soak up the sun and take in the lake and mountain views and the surrounding hills offer some of the best walking trails accessible around Lake Garda.

For getting around, there are local buses and taxis as well as an excellent ferry service that can take you to other towns around the lake.

Events & Activities

Torri competes in the legendary Bisse races throughout the summer, which are well worth heading to the lakeside to enjoy the action if you’re here at the time. Another age-old tradition nearby is the Sardine festival which celebrates old fishing traditions. See our Events page for more.

Don’t mistake this small, quiet town for having little on offer by way of activities... This is one of the best places on the lake for walking and cycling holidays, whether you’re scaling heights up in the mountains (the Monte Baldo cable car is a short bus ride away) or enjoying the scenic lakeside at a more leisurely pace. There’s also an adventure park and various water activities in the area as well as a good range of shops for anyone in need of some retail therapy – find out more about the things to see and do in Torri on our Activities page.

History & Culture

This medieval town is packed full of character with fascinating buildings and historic sights, a charming port and of course the impressive Scaliger Castle. The museum in the castle is worth a visit to find out more about the local area: It has various halls dedicated to Torri’s history including fishing and olive oil production as well as a lovely lemon house.

Also worth seeing are the religious icons in Pietro Paolo Church on the main square, a lovely cool respite on a hot summer day. Many of the buildings date back to the time when Torri del Benaco was the lake’s maritime capital. If you want to delve deeper into the past, go up the mountains where you’ll find prehistoric rock carvings or for an experience of life on the lake, head to the weekly market. You can find out more about Torri’s fascinating past on our History page.

Best time to visit Torri

When is the best time to visit Torri?

If you want to visit at a quieter time of year to really enjoy the tranquillity, stay here outside of school holidays and peak dates. May has some lovely sunny spells and October is usually quiet if you’re not fussed about the warm weather (with temperature highs of around 19°C). October’s also ideal if you want to really take advantage of the walking and cycling terrain without the summer heat and humidity holding you back. For lazy summer days by the lakeside, book a holiday in June or September when the weather’s around 25°C or June and July which have highs around 30°C.

The beginning of the summer holiday season, May is warm and sunny as well as a quieter month to book a holiday. Read more about May here.

June is lovely and warm – ideal for long afternoons watching the world go by on the lakeside. Find out about climate and more here.

Enjoy hot Italian sunshine and the longest daylight hours in July. This month usually has the least rainfall too – read more more.

Torri’s warmest month, August is a popular time to visit – the hot sunshine adding to that authentic Italian experience. For ideas of what to expect here in August, click here.
