    Surrounded by steep mountains and nestled on a crescent-shaped shore at the northern end of Lake Garda, Riva del Garda is one of its most picturesque spots. Sitting at the foot of Mount Rocchetta and Mount Baldo there are spectacular views at any time of year, but particularly in the winter when they are covered in snow. Wide, open beaches attract sunbathers and watersports enthusiasts, and the old town excites history buffs with ancient buildings and stories of its medieval past.
