Beautiful well presevered church in an amazing location. But if you have a large car plan to park at the bottom and walk up, there are several narrow arches you have to drive through to park near the church and our car did not fit.

It's a fun drive up to get to the place - a little stressful at times, as there are some single lane passes that need to be navigated - but ultimately, it's worth it for the views over Lake Garda.
