Amongst lemon trees and olive groves

Lake Garda | Lake Garda looks like a sea amidst the mountains. Even Goethe praised the spectacular scenery during a stay in 1786: “How I wish my friends could be here with me for a moment so they could rejoice in this view in front of me. Tonight I could have been in Verona but this admirable natural scenery was still lying next to me. An exquisite spectacle, Lake Garda, which I did not want to miss and I was gloriously rewarded for my circuitous route.”

Until this day you are offered numerous spectacular panoramic views around Lake Garda. When standing in Riva del Garda at the northern bank of the lake and you let your gaze wander towards the south you will understand what Goethe so longingly meant. The deep blue water surface sparkles amidst steep and rugged mountain slopes surrounded by green hillsides and these only cut through occasionally by a white sailing boat. On your way to the southern bank you are spoilt for choice. There are scenic roads along the banks on both sides of the lake that lead through smaller and larger villages nestled up in the hillsides. The Gardesana Occidentale runs along the western embankment through Limone, Gargnano and Salo and passes lemon as well as olive groves which are spread out over the slopes. Driving along the other side of Gardesana Orientale you will mainly see olives growing on the hillsides which are the source of the excellent olive oil produced around Lake Garda. Especially the picturesque villages of Malcesine, Torri del Benaco and Garda are ideal for a short stroll through town. In the background ascends Monte Baldo – with more than 2,000 metre the highest mountain around the lake.

Driving further to the south the scenery becomes hilly and the rough rocks of the Alps disappear gradually. In the Po Valley the landscape is dominated by green and turquoise colours and here the lake is at its broadest without being confined by the corset of restrictive rock formations. On the south bank you are able to find the most important and well-known villages: Peschiera, Sirminone or Desenzano.

You can truly discover and experience a lot! There is way too much to list or mention here. Come and find out for yourself!

    “Aufgrund der Winde für Segler empfehlenswert, für Sportler wird allgemein viel geboten. Gepflegter Ort mit vielen Restaurants und Cafés in allen Preisklassen. Wer shoppen möchte wird hier ebenfalls fündig. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, bei denen sich ein Besuch allemal lohnt. Auch eine Bootstour über den See ist zu empfehlen, bei dem ein Ausstieg in Limone eingeplant werden sollte.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Riva del Garda

Lake Garda at Riva has a very special fascination. The water is bluer, the sunshine more vivid and the air, oxygenised from the mountains, makes a clear Gardesana breeze that blows to push the coloured wind surf sails. The beaches, edged here with flower beds and here with steep rocks ...

are large and sunny. Around town there is Mediterranean vegetation made up of olive, lemon and palm and trees and laurels all celebrating the changing seasons. Here, where the Lake ends in the foothills of the Dolomites of Brenta, the tourist can try any of the numerous attractions that Riva has to offer: history, art, sport and nature, but also a warm welcome, hotels of the first order and restaurants serving local fare. There are many examples of Riva’s thousand year history, unmistakeable signs of civilisation, of surviving art and culture which bring us from the turbulent times of Medieval Ages to the dominance of The Signori. In the centre of the city, making a window onto the Lake, is a constant reminder of the past, starting at the Piazza III Novembre built in the Lombard-Venetian style and where you find the Apponale Tower, erected in 1220, the Pretorio Palace, built by Cansignorio della Scala in 1375 and the Palazzo del Comune built pre 1200 and rebuilt by the Venetians at the end of the Fifteenth Century. A short distance away the coastal defence, La Rocca, was erected in 1124, which today holds the Civic Museum and Art Gallery. Some valuable examples of Baroque architecture are represented in the Church of Inviolata and the Church dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption “S.M. Assunta”. Riva del Garda encourages its visitors to take part in the sports found here, suitable for every level of energy: sailing, windsurfing, fishing, walking, boules, cycling, tennis, climbing and rowing.
