If you are in Malcesine and want to see all cultural sights, we recommend that you go to the Municipal Library as well.
Its setting should not be missed. On the top floor of Captains’ Palace, you can immerse yourself in a reading area overlooking the lake.

A delightful spacious wooden attic, which has twenty-eight thousand volumes, open to adults with a small room for young readers.

It is a tranquil space where the pleasure of reading and a love of books becomes even more intense, thanks to the historic building that houses the library.

The Municipal Library of Malcesine is one of the most beautiful in the Veneto region.
