in the Valley of the Paper Mills
Toscolano Maderno holds a secret in the valley of the Toscolano stream: the Paper Museum and its industrial archaeology trails. The smell of the paste, the sound of the water, the thinness of the sheets and the master craftsman’s knowledge take us back to the 1400s. You can go even further back in time by visiting the remains of the Roman villa, against which the waves of the lake have lapped for two thousand years. After visits and excursions, you must treat yourself to an exceptional local treat: a slice of Maderno cake, with its citrus custard and fragrant shortcrust pastry.
