Lake Garda: the Trentino shore


La sponda trentina è quella più settentrionale del lago, che bagna la provincia di Trento ed è abbracciata dal panorama alpino. Si tratta di un gioiello di piccoli borghi, angoli naturalistici e spiagge naturali che rendono questa zona un vero paradiso. Le principali località di questa zona sono Riva del Garda e Nago-Torbole. 

Riva del Garda

We recommend starting your visit from Piazza III Novembre, surrounded by magnificent Veneto-Lombard buildings and overlooking a small harbour; at the corner of the square stands the 34-metre-high Apponale Tower, from the top of which you can admire an impressive panorama.

The Museo Alto Garda (MAG), located in the Rocca Medievale, is another excellent option for a visit: it includes various sections such as the Picture Gallery, an archaeological section, the A. Segantini and a section on the history of the Lower Sarca Valley from prehistory to World War II.


Torbole sul Garda is one of the most visited centres on the lake, thanks to its breathtaking views and its being a reference point for athletes and sports enthusiasts from all over the world.

Its windy climate is particularly favourable for water sports such as canoeing, sailing and windsurfing: you can find numerous experienced private instructors and its Surfing and Sailing clubs are very renowned, its waters host world and European competitions every year. Torbole is also a popular destination for trekking and mountain biking enthusiasts.

Also worth a visit is the characteristic Casa del Dazio di Torbole (Torbole Customs House), once the seat of the Austrian customs: during the years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Torbole was a border town and in this small building the customs officers carried out checks on goods arriving from the port.

Not to be missed is the view from Belvedere, a panoramic terrace from which to admire the town.
