Died and Went to Heaven
Posted May 17, 2006
Upon arrival to the town, we were let into the crowded resort town to drive through the narrow streets leading to a huge gated palace. That alone made us feel like royalty. Once there, the gates opened slowly to a road lined with Roman Statues set amongst beautifully manicured gardens with ponds and unbelievable views of Lake Garda and the Dolomites. After the hustle and bustle of Venice, we had found Heaven. In the middle of this gorgeous setting was a palace which had 50 feet ceilings with beautiful frescoes. Columns and marble adorned the palace along with antique furniture befitting royalty. The room was adequate, but the view was superb. The food at the restaurant was the best we had tasted in either Venice or Asolo, another resort which we thought was fabulous. This one was more fabulous. The service and staff could not have been more professional. The masseuse came to my room and gave me the best massage of my life. The thunder and lightning storm the first night set the stage for a picture perfect day where we could see across Lake Garda to the snow capped mountains. I hated to leave.
