Thanks to its harbour and strategic position, Desenzano del Garda has always been a meeting point that connected different areas of Italy. Its market has been immensely popular since the 16th century. In those days, cereals and grains were the town’s main exports.
Nowadays the market is still famous and lively. Every week, the promenade along the lake is lined of colourful stalls bursting with fresh produce and typical souvenirs of the area.
If you want to discover the soul of Desenzano, the market is the perfect place. Immerse yourself in the town’s daily life and dive into the local culture.
Visit the lively local market and immerse yourself in a private dining experience at a Cesarina's home, enjoy an exclusive cooking demo and taste authentic meat-free dishes treasured in family cookbooks.
Italy’s fresh produce is outstanding, so treat yourself to a dining experience which showcases the very best the peninsula has to offer. You will be welcomed into a Cesarina host's home to enjoy an Italian Aperitivo followed by a private four-course vegetarian lunch or dinner around their table. Feel like part of the family as you enjoy lovingly prepared regional recipes, accompanied by carefully selected wines and beverages.
