Lakes, Lake Garda, Salo

Italian rental villas offer self-catering facilities and holiday vacations of charm Salo, Lake Garda, Italy, Salo, Desenzano, Gardone, Limone, Toscolano Maderno, Riva del Garda,

Salo, in the south-west of the lake is embedded in a long bay and has the longest walkway of any town an the Lake. The historic old town, which dates back to the Middle Ages, is a dense network of streets, alleys and small squares lined with elegant homes, shops, restaurants and bars.

Legend has it that Salo has Etruscan origins, but recorded history begins with the founding of the Roman 'Pagus Salodium'. In the late Medieval period, the town became the most important centre along the eastern lakeshore, partly due to the change of the capital from Maderno to Salò and the influence of Beatrice della Scala, the wife of Bernabò Visconti, the Prince of Milan.

The symbol of the lion is frequently seen throughout the village witnessing the town's fidelity toward the Republic of Venice from1440, for which it later paid the price of French bombing and looting in the battle against Brescia in the C 18th C.

The last chapter of Salò's history was in the period 1943 to 1945 when the Duce Benito Mussolini established the Republic of Salò after the collapse of Italian Fascism.
