It is located approximately ten kilometers from Sirmione between three provinces: Brescia, Mantova and Verona. Situated on a hilly territory, it is today very appreciated for its cooking tradition; in the past it was the set of the battles for the Unification of Italy during the Risorgimento in the 19th century.
Rows of vineyards, cypress trees, woods and farms give this town a relaxed atmosphere.


A visit to the Castle, built during the 11th century, is warmly recommended, as to the parish church of “San Lorenzo”, which contains works by Andrea Celesti and an organ by “Antegnati”. Among the culinary specialties are: the “cookie of Pozzolengo”, saffron, honey and jams, meats, cold cuts (salami DE.CO) and cheese. Among the famous people born here are the film director Franco Piavoli and the photographer Ugo Mulas.
In Pozzolengo is located the Chervò San Vigilio Golf Club, with 36-holes, which is housed in a former Benedictine abbey.
