Borghetto, a hamlet to be visited
(Valeggio sul Mincio (VR) - Veneto)

We went several times to Valeggio to visit the Parco Giardino Sigurtà (see) and every time driving through the Visconti bridge we noticed, without stopping, a cluster of houses settled along the river.

This timewe stopped here and we toured this little hamlet included among the "I Borghi più belli d’Italia" (the most beautiful boroughs in Italy) characterized by many wheeling water mills and by the glimpses of the Mincio.

A bit of history:
The settlement dates back to the Lombard age and the name indicates its function as fortification of the Mincio ford.
In Della Scala and Visconti ages it was transformed in a fortified borough, with two accesses and polygonal walls with towers encircled by the Seriola moat.
Napoleon here defeated the Austrian army and during the 2nd War of Independence it was assigned to the Kingdom of Italy since it was on the right side of the Mincio while Valeggio settled on the left side remained part of the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia.
The renovations began in 1990 and part of the houses was converted in public places where you can taste the famous "Tortellini di Valeggio".

A note:
Once there was the Mantova-Peschiera railway, now part of the tracks has been transformed in a cycle lane that joins Mantova to Peschiera del Garda running along lengthy stretches of the river Mincio.

A curiosity:
While we were walking we noticed a group of people who, properly equipped, entered the Mincio and little by little went carried away by the current.
