By Brii
The season has started, must earlier than expected.this year Easter comes late, 24th of April so I thought my rest would be longer.but I have been involved in a new project that brings me to the other side of the Garda lake. to Limone, I guide people staying in La Limonaiaa hotel build in an old structure where lemons once were grown, in fact the nameLimonaia, means where lemons were grown.this is the view of the hotel. you can see the whole chain of Monte Baldo on the other side of the lake.from Altissimo di Nago on the left, down to Costabella to the the middle, the flat part, you have Colma Di Malcesine
