The unmissable attractions in Riva del Garda

Between culture, lifestyle, food and wine

It’s not surprising that Lake Garda is one of the most popular holiday destinations: its cultural, landscape and food and wine heritage is a perfect reason to choose your most precious time of the year on its shores. The Garda area, between mountains and an almost Mediterranean atmosphere, boasts one of the best microclimates in Europe. Add the historical-cultural attractions and charm of Riva del Garda, and every stay is transformed into a unique experience.

To begin with, a visit to the MAG (acronym for the Alto Garda Museum) located inside the medieval Rocca di Riva, which houses archaeological collections, an art gallery and, dedicated to children, the space creative INvento and Santa's House in winter. A short distance away, the renowned Mart (Museum of modern and contemporary art) in Rovereto and the MUSE in Trento. Are definitely worth a visit.

A truly engaging experience to appreciate high quality local products.
