Continuing south, in Garda, two historical residences of considerable artistic and architectural interest are a must-see: Villa Albertini and Villa Carlotti Canossa.
The first building, Villa Albertini, dates back to the second half of the 16th century, when the Becelli family commissioned the project. The villa is now owned by the Albertini family, who gave the building its name. The residence is only a few steps from Lake Garda; its entrance and gardens are situated at the Gardesana road (SR249) on the eastern shore of Lake Garda. Renovation works have been carried out of late to repair the damage caused by recent earthquakes. A large park on the hill, dominating Lake Garda, is also part of the estate.
A bit further along the Gardesana road in the direction of San Vigilio, is the Villa Carlotti Canossa. The 16th-century building was renovated and enlarged by Veronese architect Giacomo Franco in the 19th century. The residence has a great location close to Lake Garda and is surrounded by green due to its garden and adjacent park.
Both residences are privately owned and not open to the public.
