Riva del Garda is one of the largest towns on Lake Garda. This pretty and neat little town can offer visitors a lot: a great historic center, many sports activities and long beaches for relaxing and sunbathing.
In the past, Riva del Garda, was a much contested seaport due to its strategic position. After the Congress of Vienna Riva was under Austrian rule until 1918 - what you can well recognize from many of the old buildings that are influenced by Austrian style.
