Riva del Garda

Riva del Garda is the pearl of Lake Garda

A town as precious as a gem. Riva del Garda is actually defined with these terms: the gem of Lake Garda. A place enclosed by an area characterised by strong contrasts, with a Mediterranean vegetation growing vigorously at the foot of rocky cliffs that nestle a blue lake.

The Mediterranean climate, the long free sunny beaches, an enchanting panorama that has inspired the greatest poets in history: these are the main ingredients for an unforgettable holiday on Lake Garda you could repeat as many times as you wish to.
The weather in Riva del Garda forecasts in fact some mild temperatures even in winter, turning this place into the ultimate destination for every season.

Riva del Garda is the core of the Garda Trentino region, at the northernmost tip of Italy's biggest lake.
Here, the holiday embraces thousands of experiences. First of all, sport: sailing and windsurfing, but also mountain hiking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing, tennis and rowing.

The climate helps the typical Mediterranean vegetation to grow: lemon trees, olive trees, bay and palm trees, an explosion of perfumes and colours that creates a real Mediterranean haven at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites.

  • The hydroelectric plant, built on the lake shores in the 1920s thanks a project by D'Annunzio’s architect, Giancarlo Maroni, who had already built the Vittoriale degli Italian;
  • The Ponale path. Since 2004 this magnificent way overlooking the lake has been turned into a foot and cycle path, summoning lots of bike and outdoor lovers from all over the world, and becoming one of the most appreciated paths ever.
