In the Province of Brescia there is a town that is a popular vacation destination amongst travellers to this part of Italy and the town of Limone sul Garda looks just like one would imagine a small Italian town to look like. Italy has many treasures such as this one, which is located on the shores of Lake Garda in the Region of Lombardy.
This name of this town comes from the word limen, which means border, and not the word lemon as most people would think. Lemons are grown extensively throughout the region of Brescia however. Limone sul Garda has a long and extensive history, as a settlement has existed on this site since Neolithic Age. The Romans even set up a small town here sometime around 200 BC.
As a vacation destination, visitors to this picturesque town can enjoy some of the benefits of Italian healthy eating as the extra virgin olive oil of Lake Garda is known for its healthy benefits to both the young and old. The oil has a distinct fragrance and taste due to the climate and the good soil in which the plant is grown. The olives are pressed using the old cold press method so all the benefits can be harvested and then sold in the local shop.
