Description

One of the best ways to get to Tremosine sul Garda is to drive the spectacular Strada della Forra: the breathtaking route that winds through the wild gorge carved by the Brasa Torrent, from the lake to Pieve di Tremosine sul Garda.From Winston Churchill to James Bond, this spectacular stretch of road carved into the rock has been acclaimed by history and made distinguished by cinema.The Strada della Forra is a road, about 6 km long, that between tunnels, drop hairpin bends and winding curves allows you to enter the bowels of the mountain by crossing the gorge of the Brasa stream to reach the beautiful village of Tremosine (423 m asl) from the lakefront state road. It is located in the province of Brescia, on the northern Lombard shore of Lake Garda, surrounded by fairy-tale scenery to say the least. Not surprisingly, Winston Churchill called it "the eighth wonder of the world," during its inauguration in the year 1913. It was also the scene of a grand chase in the James Bond saga film "007 - Quantum of Solace," in which Daniel Craig drove his Aston Martin at full speed.
