Riva del Garda has an interesting history behind it, which is evident today. It originally belonged to the republic of Venice and later became part of the Ausrto-Hungarian Empire. It exhibits beautiful architecture and popular museums such as the 'Museo Civico', which is located in the Rocca on Lake Garda, and bounded by a canal with a lifting bridge to get to it. Also in Riva del Garda worth a look at is the 'Torre Apponale', a clock tower standing at 34 metres tall, offering fabulous vires over the city, and dating back to 1220.

There are two beautiful Lakes near Riva del Garda; Lake Teno (15 minutes drive North) and Lake Ledro (20 minutes drive West), ideal for booking a hire car and drivingt to whilst absorbing the stunning scenery.

The city is also famous for its sports tourism, since it is one of the best places for sailing, windsurfing and Paragliding. Rock Climbing is also popular here, among the adrenaline enthusiasts. Tourists can also book tickets for these activities and take part with the help from instructors.

Tourists will come across some of the best Italian Cuisines in the country here, and while there are many popular, larger restaurants available throughout the city, it is suggested to eat in the smaller, more localised cafés and pizzerias.
