With its impressive Art Nouveau façade, the Grand Hotel Liberty harks back to a forgotten era of early 20th century opulence. Nestled in stunning landscaped gardens, this refined hotel and former palace has a bright and airy interior. Boasting high arched ceilings and an elegant decor, the facilities here are all you need for a fantastic holiday in one of Lake Garda's most affluent resorts. Rooms are incredibly spacious with many having been renovated in recent years and others maintaining a classic Italian style, all located within the main building.

The restaurant and cafe is sleek and elegant with large windows peering out into the gardens. For those looking to relax, the spa facilities at Grand Hotel Liberty are at your disposal and include two glorious pools located both indoors and in the gardens, sauna, vitarium, Turkish bath, Kniepp bath and Jacuzzi. The outdoor pool (open from Apr - Sep) is in a quiet area of the gardens and there are plenty of sun loungers and parasols in order for you to soak up the Riva sunshine. 

When getting out and about to the rest of Riva and resorts beyond, the ferry port is just a ten minute walk away.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach Verona airport.
