Crystalline water surrounded by mountains which it reflects and dense forests all around... this is said to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the region of Trentino... and not without a reason.
Until about 1847, this lake was kind of cut off from the world, and in this year a street was built, with a few narrow serpentines. Then another street was built in 1980, leading to the Ledro Valley. A major archaeological discovery that you will get to see from a holiday home at Lake Ledro dates back to the Bronze Age, and it is exhibited at museum Molina di Ledro. This city is also like the “capital city” of the lake, and it boasts other attractions as well, yet these dwellings and their items that were found in 1929 when the waters of the lake were brought down for industrial purposes are really amazing. Bezzecca village is known for being the scene of a major battle on July 21st 1866, and trenches, tunnels and positions in the Valle di Ledro are still accessible today, as witnesses of WWI scenes.
The valley of Lake Ledro boasts numerous museums, among which to be mentioned are of course the Pile-Dwelling Museum with the archaeological finds, the Garibaldi and WWI Museum and Santo Stefano hill found in Bezzecca, the Pharmacy Lab Museum Foletto in Pieve and so on. There are events held here throughout the year, you may get lucky and “catch” one from a last minute holiday villa at Lake Ledro, such as Gospel Concerts in Molina di Ledro for Christmas, or the Children's Christmas in the same town that involves a small carriage tour in the center of the village and also cakes and hot chocolate; the Ledro Comics in June, the Bezzecca 150 in July, portraying war history and many others. All in all, culture and nature kind of go hand in hand here at Lake Ledro, so you'll have a most entertaining experience at all times on holiday here.
