Riva del Garda

Riva del Garda Photo, Lake Garda, Italy

Riva del Garda is one of the bigger tourist centers around the Garda Lake, and the main resort town on the northern shore. With its two harbors, Riva is well equipped for many kinds of water sports, and one can also do rock climbing, or visit the Varone waterfalls a few miles to the north. Riva is also a good base for daytrips up the Monte Baldo, or the mountains to the west of the lake, where mountain biking is a popular recreation. Each year in spring, Riva hosts a world-renowned mountain bike festival.
