A weekend in Riva del Garda: the pearl of Lake Garda
Each glimpse is an emotion, each season deserves a holiday in Riva del Garda, that corner of the Mediterranean you don’t expect, nestled in the middle of the Brenta Dolomites and bathed by the immense Lake Garda.
Its naturalistic “jewels”, are especially the mountains: Mount Rocchetta to the west, Mount Baldo to the east, Mount Brione, with its classic almost “hat” shape. The heights allow you to experience thrilling cycle and pedestrian itineraries. As panoramic as the Ponale path, one of the most famous in Europe and perhaps the most loved in the whole continent, and then many easy walks even for families with a baby stroller.
Riva del Garda is sporty. Of those towns that offer many outdoor activities in a weekend. Of course, being “wet” by Lake Garda – suitable for swimming and safe for children as well – water sports are the most famous thanks to the winds of Garda, Ora, from the south, above all, which keep the clouds away, mitigating the climate and making it pleasantly Mediterranean even in an alpine context. Its contrasts are certainly its beauty.
A beauty that of Riva del Garda, which fascinates hundreds of tourists every year who come here even just for a weekend.
