Arco is your best location for an active and reinvigorating holiday.
Arco is situated at the heart of the northern Lake Garda region. At one end, Arco faces Lake Garda, while its other end is surrounded by the mountains. It is a well-known holiday resort by virtue of its mild climate, clean and healthy air and its position right by the lake-side.
Archduke Albert of Habsburg built his winter residence, the Villa Arciducale, in Arco. Surrounded by a lush park, the Arboretum, it hosts exotic and Mediterranean plants. The Habsburgs ornated the city with parks and gardens, elegant liberty villas and beautiful palaces. The Castle of Arco, one of the most beautiful medieval fortresses in the Alps, was built by the Counts of Arco at the top of a towering rock overlooking the plain of the river Sarca and offers a breathtaking panorama.
