Vittoriale degli italiani
There is hardly a more splendid museum to be found that impresses both architecturally and historically and with a rich and chequered past.
The Vittoriale, complete with its large parking facility, is located on the western side of Lake Garda. The lot is no less than 9 hectares large and is an ideal trip tip both for families with kids and for historical and cultural aficionados. It was the former residence of Italian playwright Gabriele D’Annunzio and designed by Italian architect Giancarlo Maroni.
In addition to stylish buildings such as the Villa “La Prioria” that holds a library of 6000 tomes, you’ll find paintings by the German 19th century realist painter Franz von Lehnbach and the Steinway grand piano of the composer Franz Liszt.
