Riva del Garda: a place rich in history
Riva del Garda is the main town on the northern shore of Lake Garda. It was already inhabited during the Roman Age and subsequently became one of the Austro-Hungarian rich domains over the centuries. Riva was not annexed to the Italian nation until 1918. This picturesque town is renowned for its olive and lemon trees, laurel shrubs and palm trees. Riva del Garda is the perfect location whether you wish to spend an active holiday or seek peace and relax: MTB tours, walks by the lake or relaxing days on the gravel of the lakeshore.
