San Zeno di Montagna ist a mountain resort with particolar good air in the province of Verona, situated about 550 meters over Lake Garda, at the bottom of the south-west-side of the MONTE BALDO.
Being a traditional place for vacancies, San Zeno offers breathtaking views on Lake Garda, which however is reachable within few minutes by car. Still nowadays, San Zeno is deeply connected to its traditions.
It is famous for the production of sweet chestnuts and a large number of products and typical plates that can be derived from them.
But also the alpine dairy plays a significant role and local produced cheese and yoghurt can be bought there or directly at the close hill farms.
Farmhouse restaurants offer traditional food.
Theme parks as well as cultural sightseeing can easily be done in short distances and last, but not least, the Lake by itsself offers a huge number of possible sport activities.
