Dogana Veneta

Dogana Veneta is a famous, 14th-century building that stands on the main square of Lazise (Verona), near the ancient harbor and directly overlooking the shores of Lago di Garda.
During the Venetian-age the building was used as a customs house for the transportation of goods between Lombardy and the Republic of Venice. In fact, the boats had to enter by passing under the imposing arches of its facade, before being able to access the port from an adjacent opening.

Lazise

The name Lazise comes from the Latin word “lacus” which means “lakeside village,” as documents from the High Middle Ages seem to confirm, having listed the town under the name “Laceses.” Another theory, later discarded, said the town was named after Antonio Bevilacqua di Loncis, who, in 1014, became the lake’s Governor, and who gave life to the important family whose name later changed to Bevilacqua-Lazise.

Lake Garda

J.W.Goethe wrote this about Lago di Garda: “I could have already made it to Verona this evening, but there was this majestic display of nature just a few steps away from me, that delicious portrait that is Lago di Garda. And I did not want to miss it: I feel generously compensated for having prolonged my journey… I deeply desire that my friends could be with me for a moment to enjoy the sight before my eyes”.
