Video Salò Lake Garda: lakefront and central street
Watch the following video, where you can see the lakefront of Salò at different times of the day and the central street of this lively town on Lake Garda.
The Giant Bench
La Panchina Gigante is located just 10 minutes by car from Salò and, more precisely, in Cisano di San Felice del Benaco. Watch the following video!
Hello everyone, we are on Lake Garda and more precisely in the hamlet of Cisano di San Felice del Benaco to see the Great Yellow Bench, number 101 of a large number of installations scattered throughout Italy.
Cisano di San Felice del Benaco is only about ten minutes by car from Salò and a few minutes from San Felice del Benaco.
Before going to see the Giant Bench, let’s get to know a little more about the village of Cisano.
The settlement of Cisano presumably dates back to the 16th century, even if the village is certainly older: in fact, we find its name in a document from the year 958.
The community of Cisano was dedicated to agriculture, perhaps for this reason it felt more connected to San Felice than to Salò, the latter being the capital of the Magnifica Patria and residence of notables and merchants.
The giant bench, as per the Big Bench Community Project, must be positioned in a panoramic, contemplative place away from houses, streets and buildings.
The Giant Yellow Bench is easy to reach: from the parking lot, just take a pleasant and short walk among the olive trees and follow the directions.
The place where the Giant Bench 101 is located offers you a privileged observation point over the Gulf of Salò, the Gardone Riviera and the Pre-Alps that surround the upper lake.
Now let’s enjoy the Giant Bench and the beautiful view. Getting on this bench offers you a lot of fun as you can also see at the end of the video, but also good relaxation.
