The Hotel du Lac et du Parc is one of our favourite hotels in Riva. It's incredibly spacious with fresh modern interiors, lush gardens and a fantastic location by the lake. You're slightly out of the centre of town, so it feels like a really exclusive place to stay, with it's own private gate leading onto the lakeside promenade.

The best gardens on Lake Garda

The hotel has some of the best gardens on Lake Garda. When you walk out of the main building you’re transported to a peaceful park with paths winding around the pools and tall trees providing shade. It leads all the way down to the lakefront. As you can imagine, there are plenty of places to sit back and relax with a book – either by one of the two pools, on a secluded bench under a tree or next to the lake.

Fantastic for families

The hotel caters well for almost everybody. Families are more than welcome here and there’s a dedicated children’s pool for little ones to splash about in plus a playground and mini club. If you like staying active on holiday, you’ll love the tennis courts and water sports centre where you can organise surfing, kayaking and sailing (all are payable locally). Don’t forget to try out some of the walking and cycling trails around Riva, too. For the days when you need to relax, there’s the spa – we love chilling in the indoor pool and enjoying the views of the garden.

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

Riva, in the far north of Lake Garda, rolls out a waterfront that’s almost as grand as the mountains behind. Roman, Venetian, Napoleonic and Austro-Hungarian rulers have all occupied this prized position between the Italian Alps, lakes and plains, leaving behind a richly decorated lakeside promenade and old town. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, olive, cypress, palm and lemon trees thrive in Riva, making for some of the most scenic hiking and cycling paths in Italy. Plus, the jagged peaks of the Dolomites are on the doorstep… if you can bear to peel yourself away from Riva, that is.

Activities by (and on) the lake

Life revolves around the water in Riva del Garda. Day-trippers come and go by boat and restaurants and cafés set out their tables along the sun-trapped promenade. This stretch of shore is also a favourite spot for windsurfing, canoeing and sailing aficionados. Stroll or cycle along the promenade to neighbouring Torbole, passing sand and pebble beaches along the way. You’ll find that it’s nearly impossible to resist abandoning your bike or boots for a dip in the lake.

Swap Lake Garda for Ledro for the day

The emerald waters of Lake Ledro are just a half-hour bus ride away from Riva. This high alpine lake is another irresistible swimming spot, as well as a great place for delving into the region’s pre-Roman history at the open-air Pile-dwelling museum. Alternatively, head to Lake Ledro via one of the best hiking and cycling paths in Lake Garda – the panoramic Strada del Ponale (Ponale Road).

Walking around Riva old town

Riva has one of the most picturesque waterfronts in Lake Garda, with grand waterfront buildings dressed in alpine shades of blue, buttercup and rose. Don’t miss the car-free, flower-filled old town, Venetian city gates, cobbled main square and baroque fresco-adorned churches. Even the museum, Alto Garda, has extravagant trappings; this medieval fortress was once owned by the powerful Scaliger family. A glance at the restaurant menus reveals specials of schnitzels and strudels, as well as delicious mountain cheeses, cured meats such as mortadella and fruity red wines.

Exploring Lake Garda

Boats regularly set off from Riva’s harbour, bound for the villages of Lake Garda. Each one has its own forte. You could visit Malcesine and catch the cable car up Monte Baldo, explore Limone’s (you guessed it) lemon growing history, and even sail as far south as castle-topped Sirmione. Hold on to your hat whilst speeding across the lake aboard catamarans and hydrofoils, or choose one of the leisurely ferries that meander through the lake and mountain scenery at a more holiday-like pace.
