What's Arco Like?
Most sightseeing trips from your base at Arco hotels will start with a visit to Arco Castle. This ancient castle ruin dates back to the Middle Ages and was built by its ancient citizens. It then became the domain of the local nobles of Arco. Next the Sanctuary of Our Lady Grace offers an interesting shrine and nearby monastery to visit where some sense of the town's religious fervour may be gleaned. At Palazzo Marchetti various frescoes from artists can be enjoyed. At Palazzo dei Panni, see how it was converted into a wooden mill. For many centuries the town has been popular as a winter wellness retreat and spas and resorts ensure that your need for pampering is not ignored. Treating yourself to some Italian delicacies such as potato gnocchi and bacon, ricotta and Franciscan tagliatelle is a good way to spend an evening.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Arco
The Trentino region is an area of contrasts and the town of Arco is no exception. Romans and Celts once shared this area and the roots of these cultures still exist. German and Italian cultures all once coexisted here and that makes the culture in the town unique. The area has its own local dialect, gastronomic culture and some minority cultures still live according to their peculiar traditions. Activities around Lake Garda offer great opportunities to get to know local people as they hike, walk, cycle and spend time with their families. Mealtimes at restaurants and Arco hotels are important for forming and maintaining friendships. The reputation of Italians as passionate people is well deserved but they also value their customs and traditions. Manners, respect for elders, religion and the family is of the utmost importance in Italy.
