GARDA RIVA Excursion: Galeas for Montes - The epic feat of the Republic of Venice on Lake Garda, Exit Out door with the Highland Guides

GUIDED EXCURSION - GALEAS FOR MONTES - OUT-OF-DOOR LAKE GARDA - RIVA DEL GARDA

The epic feat of the Republic of Venice on Lake Garda.
 
If we were in the United States, they'd probably make a movie and a TV series.
Here, however, this extraordinary historical story is unknown to most.
On 10 April 1440, the Venetian fleet commanded by Stefano Contarini defeated the ships of the Duchy of Milan off the Ponale, extending the dominoes of the Lion of St. Mark all over the lake.
This was possible thanks to the engineering of the Serenissima that the year before had allowed 33 boats to climb up against the current the Adige, then dragged on huge rollers designed for the purpose, crossing 20 km by land the m.te Baldo, until they were lowered from Nago to the port of Torbole, in Lake Garda. The first Venetian fleet on the Garda was unsuccessful, but thanks to the daring connection route, it was possible to rebuild the boats and destroy the Viscountess float. The clash raged between the Ponale and Riva: "The shouting, screeching them, the squeak of woods, of the tailors and de le people, everything that was heard, what was seen represented orror, peril and death". For 3 hours the battle raged, in the end the only one stretched out in the wind was the banner of St. Mark. Historical/naturalistic excursion that will take place for much of the easy route along the north shore of Lake Garda, between Torbole and Riva. Return by ferry.
