The tourist facility "all'orologio" is located in the historic centre of Peschiera del Garda Città Turistica e d'Arte, just 100 meters from the Lake Garda. The facility, equipped with air-conditioning ventilation system in all its spaces, provides its guests with a restaurant bar, a pizzeria with firewood oven and large spaces for tourist use. At the fourth floor there is also a beautiful sky terrace, accessed by lift.
"all'orologio" is mainly addressed to international clients with its newly renovated "furnished housing units for tourist use", classified according to the current regional regulation under "winged lions". The housing units are in a building, "under a conservation order", of refined architecture. Due to its location in the historic centre there aren't enough parking for the clients compared to the number of accommodations. Many available free public parking and easily affordable carparks nearby located may compensate for that.
The facility building faces on the central square San Marco, with a view on the emerald waters of the river Mincio and a few meters from the Lake Garda (of which Mincio is the main effluent), which may be seen with its mountain crown from the sky terrace too.
It is located in an historical context, which is under a conservation order, its facade is embellished by friezes and it is located next to the historical building of the Venetian Superintendent dominated by a big clock whose bellows are still indicated by the beak of two huge winged predatory birds.
It is situated within the historical perimeter of the Military Stronghold, in which there are also Roman stratifications, Venetian, Napoleonic and Austrian fortifications surrounding the entire area and which constitutes one of the main landscapes and cultural assets of this territory. The Venetian Works of Defence between the 16th and 17th Centuries, which are part of the historical artistic heritage of the historic centre and of the stronghold of the Municipality of Peschiera del Garda, have been listed on the UNESCO List of World Heritage. Great part of the walls has been designed by Sanmicheli.
"all'orologio" is located 25 km from Verona Città d'Arte and a few minutes’ drive from Gardaland theme park and other well known amusement parks (Movieland Park, etc..), from natural parks (Parco Giardino Sigurtà of Valeggio o/M, Parco della Lessinia, Parco termale del Garda, Parco Regionale del Mincio, Parco Natura Viva of Bussolengo, Gardaland Sea Life Aquarium etc..) and other water parks.
Peschiera del Garda, known as "Arilica" at the times of the Roman Empire is a nice and friendly town, full of attractions and events. It provides free time facilities, in particular for water sports, and counts averagely on 2,500,000 overnight stays a year, mainly coming from abroad and so reaching its full "global internationality".
The historic center stands inside a mighty five-pointed star-shaped fortress, completely surrounded by water. From Peschiera, you can easily reach the most significant amusement parks in the area, as well as nearby art cities like Verona, Brescia and Mantuva.
Peschiera del Garda offers a wide array of bathing facilities and it is furthermore the starting point of the lake circumnavigation and transit point of important cycle and pedestrian paths of the Parks. Its soil is fertile allowing the production of excellent fine wine.
Among the most beautiful parks surrounding it, there is Parco Sigurtà, already recognised as the most beautiful park in Italy. It is the perfect place for a day close to nature with its 600,000 square meters of green spaces and ancient forests. For every season the Garden changes its face: in spring thanks to the famous Tulipanomania you can see the blossom of 1 million tulips: the biggest tulips blossom of southern Europe; in summer you can enjoy the aquatic blooms; in autumn there are the seasonal blossoms and the sparkling colours of the trees. The little ones can't miss the petting zoo, where they can meet different barnyard animals and the many free events offered.
