Excavations indicate, that there were already settlers in the 13th centuries BC. What they know for sure is that in the 11th century the harbour of Lazise was a naval port. In those times trading and the military where the most important things. During the centuries different rulers made Lazise a stronghold.
Today you can enter the historical city of Lazise only through one of the three city gates. The whole old town is car free what makes a walk through the narrow streets very enjoyable.
