You can also spend the day exploring the delightful town center, full as it is with interesting attractions dating from the medieval and Baroque periods. Hotels.com has a great selection of Riva del Garda hotels for you to choose from, whether you're looking for something lakeside, or centrally located.

What's Riva del Garda Like?
The town is located in an advantageous position on the southern edge of the Italian Alps, and is 230 feet above sea level. This gives it a favorable climate, making it comfortable rather than sweltering in the summer. Lake Garda itself is surely the biggest highlight here, and you'll feel as though you are at the seaside, save for the mountains framing the scenery. Must-sees in the town include the Rocca di Riva citadel, which dates as far back as 1124; the crumbling 16th-century Bastione Venetian fortress, whose crumbling walls look out onto some of the best views of the lake, and the medieval belfry Torre Apponale on the central town square. Riva del Garda hotels range from family-run businesses and classic holiday resorts situated in town or on the shores of the lake.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Riva del Garda
The multi-lingual staff in Riva del Garda hotels tend to be locals, so will be able to provide you with some insider tips. What would we ask? Which are the best parts of Lake Garda's shore to visit? Are there any local traditions and festivities coming up? And obviously, the reason why so many tourists come to Italy in the first place, the best places to eat! The region of Trentino-Alto Adige, where Riva del Garda is located, is famed for its light extra virgin olive oils, Limoncino liquor, red wines, and freshwater fish. An absolute must is to take a boat trip out onto the lake on one of the ferries, hydrofoils, or motorized catamarans, which run daily, and visit one of the other towns and villages situated along the shore. Whatever you decide to do, with Hotels.com, booking a hotel will be as easy as the breeze on Lake Garda itself.
