Monte Baldo is a mountain in the Italian Alps, located in the provinces of Trentino and Verona. Its ridge spans mainly northeast-southwest, and is bounded from south by the highland ending at Caprino Veronese, from west by Lake Garda, from north by the valley joining Rovereto to Nago-Torbole and, from east, the Val d'Adige.
The name derives from the German Wald ("forest"); it appears for the first time in a German map in 1163.
The summit is reachable through a cable car from the nearby town of Malcesine, lying on the Lake Garda.
