Riva del Garda is an elegant town on the shores of the wonderful Lake Garda, forever international tourist elite resort where eminent persons like the brothers Mann, Nietzsche e Kafka stayed. 

This fascinating resort attracts the world’s travel elite for many different reasons, but mainly for its beautiful landscape, refined and historical luxury hotels with beautiful lake and mountain view and mild Mediterranean climate, despite its nearness to the imposing Brenta Dolomites. Another strong point is the number of activities you can practice here, above all sailing, and the many must-see events.

It doesn’t take much to fall in love with the city: a lakeside walk, a tour around the castles, gardens and villages, an afternoon spent going shopping in the elegant shops selling clothes, design items and local products. To end the day in style, you can dine in an elegant restaurant and try the many specialties: vegetable oil (the only one in the world to be produced at this altitude), lake fish and the typical carne salada (salted meat). You can’t miss a taste of the excellent wines: Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Pinot gris, Nosiola, Müller Thurgau, Schiava, Merlot and Cabernet are only some of the most renowned.

The luxury 4 and 5 star hotels of Riva del Garda are equipped with everything you need for your wellbeing. If you are looking for a different experience you can visit the spa of Lido di Arco and try one of the many treatments using the low mineral content water of Lifano.

Riva del Garda is a paradise for sport lovers: cycling, mountain biking, climbing, and especially windsurfing and sailing. Thanks to constant wind conditions, Lake Garda is considered one of the best regatta fields of Europe. It is not by chance that the regattas organized on Lake Garda are famous worldwide.
