Malcesine was rather disappointing - lots of tacky souvenir-type shops, but the only place on the lake to take a cable-car ride up nearby Monte Baldo. Limone was more interesting and had a pretty little church a little way up the hill from the town centre. Largely because of its name and the fact that lemons were originally grown there in quantity, everybody assumes that the town is called 'Lemons'. In fact it couldn't be further from the truth, as it was the northern-most point of the Roman Empire at one stage in history - 'limes' is Latin for 'frontier'.
