Limone is a town on the shore of Lake Garda, with sheer, rocky cliffs rising up behind it. The area is the furthest north location where lemons and citrus fruit can be grown, although the name Limone is unlikely to come from “lemon”, as the town is thought to pre-date the lemon growing industry.

Along the lake from Limone lies the charming town of Riva, which has several attractive sights, including its old town, museum, and the Torre Apponale. The town is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day, while visiting the cafes in the
