Riva del Garda
Riva del Garda is one of the most important holiday destinations in northern Italy. Two of the top Lake Garda resorts for the English-speaking market are Riva del Garda on the northern end of the lake and the resort of Garda in the south.
But Riva isn't just about tourism - it was an important strategic
point at the juncture of the Alps and the Italian plains for many centures.

Neighbouring resorts have a little bit more of an active lifestyle. Arco is set back a little way from the lake and is a favourite for rockclimbers, while the lakeside resort of
Torbole is more popular with windsurfers. More information:
