Hotel Sole Relax & Panorama has the perfect harbour-front location. Grab a glass of prosecco and head straight for the roof terrace – the views over the lake are incredible. You can watch the boats come and go and see the people socialising in the busy square.

In Riva's bustling old town

As soon as you step out of the hotel you’ll find yourself in Riva’s main square. There’s a great atmosphere here, particularly in the summer. People enjoy al fresco lunches and afternoon drinks while taking in the views of the lake. If you want to head further afield, the ferry port is close by too.

Food and spa therapy

The restaurant spills out onto the terrace and serves up some great dishes – make sure you try the pizza. Enjoy the spa's (payable locally) whirlpool, sauna, steam room and sensory showers - it’s the perfect way to relax after a day exploring Riva's stunning cobbled streets.

24/7 support & tailored advice from our local resort team


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 walking 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.

Family activities by (and on) Lake Garda

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 walking 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.
