Castelnuovo holidays deliver a heap of theme parks and historical sights. Plus, it makes an excellent base for exploring more of Italy.
Small town, big ideas
Castelnuovo may be an unassuming stop between Peschiera
, but don't be fooled – there's a trio of theme parks within striking distance. Set back from Lake Garda
in northern Italy
, this ancient town's peppered with historical sites and packaged in an idyllic countryside setting.
Take the train
A train ride from Lake Garda's one of the best ways to see the rolling countryside. You'll trundle past lush olive groves and sun-dappled vineyards on the way to your big town of choice – Verona, Venice and Milan can all be reached in an hour or two.
Thrills and spills
Thrill-seekers are perfectly positioned to visit not one, but three great theme parks. Gardaland is a European top 10 with themed hotels and a sea life centre alongside its rides. CanevaWorld Resort and Movieland – a huge waterpark and a film-based theme park – are also close at hand.
