The windmills of Borghetto

Borghetto sul Mincio is a gorgeous little town, famous for its old windmills on the river Mincio and for its rich history and architecture. Watching sunset over the river can be a truly unforgettable experience as the ancient towers and bridges loom on the horizon: the Ponte Visconteo dates back to 1393 and is quite unique in its genre. Perch and trout from the river are at their best when paired with local whites such as Custoza and Bardolino: a true foodie's delight!
