Welcome to Limone sul Garda

The name of the town derives from the Latin word "Limen", which means border, but it is commonly believed that it comes from the typical local citrus fruit: the lemon. The earliest settlements of the people of Benaco (the ancient name of the lake) date back to the Neolithic Age (in the nearby Ledro Valley you can still visit the prehistoric pile dwellings from the Bronze Age).

Celtic tribes inhabited the area in 600 B.C. and were later conquered by the Romans in 200 B.C. Over the centuries, Limone was involved in and affected by the historical events that took place in northern Italy: from the Longobards to the arrival of Charlemagne, the Venetian Republic, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Italian Risorgimento, the two World Wars, and the birth of the new Italian Republic.

However, the most important period for the social, economical and cultural development of Limone was during the domination of the Venetian Republic in the first half of the 15th century A.D. Through the skilful administration of the "Serenissima" and its entrepreneurial ability, Limone developed from being a typical rural economy based on fishing and olive growing to becoming the northernmost area for the cultivation of citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, and citrons.
