In the medieval age the town was the seat of an important monastery and later, especially under the government of Veronese family Della Scala, it was ringed by massive walls. The churches of St. Zeno, St. Severus and the monastery of St. Columban, outstanding monuments of the centre, date back to this age.

The town, favored by the lakeside mild climate and by a panoramic position on lake Garda, is a major tourist destination. Inhabited since the 2nd millennium B.C., it became an important commercial hub during the Roman age, being on the way for the goods coming from Germany. In the late 10th century it gained extensive autonomy from the Sacred Roman Empire, being thus considered as the first free municipality in Italy.
