Venetian Customs House
A centuries-old cultural monument
The Dogana Veneta (Venetian Customs House) is a prominent building from the 1300s that stands in the main square of Lazise, close to the old port and directly on the shores of Lake Garda. In the Venetian era the structure was used as a customs house for the transit of goods between Lombardy and the Republic of Venice. Boats had to enter it passing under the imposing arches of its façade, before being able to access the port through a side opening.
The function of the structure changed later on with the fall of the republic, as the access from the lake was blocked off and the building was used for other purposes. Restored in 2003, the building has been used to host congresses, weddings, art exhibitions, concerts, fashion shows, conventions, as well as prestigious cultural and social events. The structure combines the taste of an evocative monumental setting with the most modern technologies of a conference centre, becoming one of the most elegant and exclusive locations for events in the province of Verona.
