The tourist resorts of Toscolano and Maderno are located in the middle of the "Riviera of Lemons", on the Western shores of Lake Garda. Toscolano, situated to the North, has Etruscan origins, while Maderno, further to the South, has Roman roots. The Parish Church of St. Pietro and St. Paolo in Toscolano, the ancient Sanctuary of Madonna del Benaco, the Basilica of St. Andrea in Maderno, along with other palaces and monuments, testify to the importance of this charming Gardesan village, which was once the capital of the Garda Riviera. Toscolano Maderno, among the most illustrious lakeside lands, lies in an enchanting position, and has a climate that can be compared only to the climate of the Ligurian Riviera. Crowned with evergreens and Mediterranean plants, it is nestled atop a wide promontory, between the romantic port of Toscolano and the suggestive Gulf of Maderno. Hotel and tourist facilities have been considerably developed and the area is becoming increasingly better known for this reason. For hiking enthusiasts and those who love peaceful surroundings, there are the hamlets of Maclino, Vigole, Sanico, Bezzuglio, Gaino, Cabiana, Cecina, Roina and Pulciano, located in the hills that slope down towards the lake, which are situated on delightful "balconies", immersed in the greenery and overlooking the blue expanse of the lake. These are also localities where characteristic restaurants may be found. A typical, relaxing walk, especially during the summer season, is the itinerary from the Valley of the Paper Mills and the "Camerate", which is today a site of industrial archaeology, with a museum, and where there were once numerous paper mills. The valley has particularly blooming vegetation, with cypress, olive and Holm oak trees. It is an itinerary that is not only cultural, but also healthful, in an environment that is certainly not polluted and which is ideal for biking. Additionally, there are also a beautiful golf course, a sportsground and numerous beaches and lakeside bathing resorts, which offer tourists hospitality during their stay.
