Le Bisse del Lago

The "Bisse del Lago" were ancient boats and they were used for fishing on the lake through the ages. They have a characteristic shape (a narrow keel and pointed ends). Four men are needed to row the boat, gondolier-style through the water.

The famous "Campionato delle Bisse  Bandiera del lago" involves all the villages of the Lake. After the competition, the Bisse are exposed and you can see them very well.

Visit the section "Events" to know when they compete.

Special Events:

  • Palio delle Mura in Peschiera del Garda
  • Palio delle contrade in Garda - 15th of august
  • Campionato delle Bisse Bandiera del Lago (dates in all summer in all the Garda Lake villages)
