Art cities

Nautic Resort San Carlo is an excellent point of departure to discover nearby cities such as Brescia, Verona, Mantova and Venice.


Ancient city built and developed at the foot of Cidneo Hill above which rises the castle. An unexplored city but full of surprises, where each square represents an era. The Roman part with its magnificent Piazza del Foro and its Capitolium temple, the remains of ancient Roman domus and the Theatre, Piazza della Vittoria expression of the municipal period with the Romanesque cathedral and the new Cathedral, Piazza della Loggia, the square with the magnificent Venetian palaces that surround it and the clock tower that marks the time and brings us back to the period of Venetian domination, Piazza della Vittoria, twentieth-century expression from where every year the Mille Miglia, the famous race for historic cars, starts.

In 2011 Brescia was included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO with the museum complex of Santa Giulia and Capitolium Temple. The Museum of the City was set up in the monastery of Lombard origin that traces the history starting from prehistoric times to the present day. Unique in its kind as evidence of the passage of different ages, evidence of the layered history: built on the ruins of the splendid Roman domus that can be visited contains also the Basilica of San Salvatore, the Romanesque Santa Maria in Solario, the Nuns' Choir , the Church of Santa Giulia and its cloisters.


Known throughout the world as the city of Romeo and Juliet's lovers, known to opera lovers for its shows that take place every summer in the Arena overlooking Piazza Bra, Verona is a small treasure trove of art.

Just crossing the pedestrian Corso Cavour that from Piazza Bra leads to Piazza delle Erbe you discover the pleasure in walking the cobbled streets full of charming shops and seeing the ancient Roman ruins that resurface throughout the city, keep on crossing the Ponte Pietra up to Roman Theatre and discover picturesque corners everywhere.

Do not miss a visit to the splendid Basilica of San Zeno as well as in Castelvecchio crossing the Scaliger bridge, the Church of St. Anastasia or just stroll along the Adige river.


Small town of ancient origins, home of Gonzaga family thanks to whom Mantua reached its current splendor. Heart of the city is Palazzo Gonzaga with the famous “Camera degli Sposi” frescoes by Andrea Mantegna. Equally interesting are the cathedral of Leon Battista Alberti, the Rotonda di San Lorenzo, Palazzo Te, museums, art galleries and its alleys and small characteristic squares.

A lot of cultural events take place at any time of the year: in recent years the Literature Festival, which takes place in early September, has become very important.


Enchanting city that does not need any introduction. Every square, every alley, every street is a work of art, where East and West blend and remind us of its past power, glory and domination in the Mediterranean Sea.

Rounded and golden domes, bell towers, melanchonic “gondole”, bright squares, extraordinary museums, small precious workshops and amazing local markets, small unknown bridges and the best known bridge on Canale di Rialto, the true artery of the city, where all life flows and it divided itself in small and large channels that run through and shape the city.

Art, culture, cinema, traditions, events such as Carnival, the Biennale, the Venice Film Festival, the Historical Regatta, the spectacular wedding of the Sea just to mention some events that follow one another without interruption throughout the year and attract million visitors.
