The name of this pleasant place immediately reminds you of the ruby-red, delicately scented "Bardolino" wine. Not surprisingly the city is home to an interesting wine museum and is the starting-point of the "Bardolino wine trail".

Once a run-of-the mice fishing village, it is now fully-fledged tourist resort. Wide beaches, a wide range of hotels and leisure activities on the lake are added to the artistic and cultural attractions of the area. The history of Bardolino starts with the remains of a prehistoric  pile-dwelling village unearthed at Cisano. The name is probably Longobard in origin, and refers to the name of certain princess called Bardali or Pardali, and like all of the lake-shore towns, it was soon surrounded by battlemented walls, tours and keeps.

The "frazione" (near equivalent of a "suburb") of Cisano is home to the Olive Oil Museum and has long beaches; the hilly inland area towards Calmasino boast suggestive expanses of olive-groves and vine-yards and Cavaion has a small prehistoric and Roman museum.
