Is a town and comune in the province of Verona, in Veneto, Italy. When Lombardy-Venetia was under Austrian rule, Peschiera was the northwest anchor of the four fortified towns constituting the Quadrilatero. The fortress is on an island in the river Mincio at its outlet from Lake Garda.

The town is encircled by massive Venetian defensive systems that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 9 July 2017.  Peschiera del Garda was also known for its military jail, which closed in 2002. The comune is part of the Associazione Città del vino (“Association of Wine Cities”). In winter, the nearby Laghetto del Frassino is the most important habitat for tufted ducks in Italy (Morbioli & Sighele 2006). Wikipedia
