Lake Garda presents its pearls to travellers, one of them is the town of Desenzano. The city is located in a panoramic, beautiful place, at the foot of the Moraine Hills, which extend to the west of Lake Garda.
The history of the town is rich and goes back to the Bronze Age, when the first settlement stood on the present territory, which lived in small buildings.
On the territory of this city, many archaeological expeditions and excavations were carried out. The exhibits that archaeologists found were able to tell a little about the culture and traditions of the settlement. As it turned out, their life was very primitive.
The name of the city remains from Roman times. It was the Romans who began to build large villas and luxurious mansions on the territory of the city. In the Middle Ages, Desenzano became the desire for the cities of Verona and Brescia. These two provinces fought for many years over the territory of the town.
