Arco is a well-kept health resort in Trentino, on the north shore of Lake Garda. Sharply rises the Castle Hill of Arco, at the foot of which the town is nestled between the mountains and the lake. East of the town flows the river Sarca, the major influx of Lake Garda.

Due to its mild climate Arco is, since the second half of the 19th Century, a popular health resort. Archduke Albert of Austria in 1872 made Arco the town of his winter residence. The palm-lined avenues, the beautifully renovated Renaissance houses and the small squares of the old town invite you to stroll and linger.

Today Arco is a very popular holiday resort for athletes: sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking, and especially climbing and free climbing. Every year in Arco, is hold the "Rock Master" - the world championships of the climbers.
