Gravedona’s picturesque lakeside promenade with its renovated houses painted in Italian colours is a magnet for visitors. The municipality is aware of the importance of the place for the northern lake and therefore provides the necessary structures that tourists increasingly expect as well. A small supermarket on the shore road supplies guests and residents with everyday necessities, several ice cream parlours and many restaurants sweeten the stay. The economy of the village was originally based on fishing, agriculture and goldsmithing.
The highlight of the year is the lake festival on 14 August with the awarding of decorated fishing boats (Lucie) and a large fireworks display. For flower lovers, there is no way around Palazzo Gallio on Easter weekend, which can only be visited during events.
