Encircled by towering rock faces and a looping landscaped lakefront, Riva's appealing historic core is arranged around handsome Piazza III Novembre and is a medley of maze-like streets and period facades. For centuries Riva's position at the northern tip of the lake, a key access for northern armies into Italy, lent it a vital strategic role. In the Middle Ages the town was a port for the Prince-Bishops of Trento, and throughout its history Riva was much fought over, ruled at various times by the Republic of Venice, Milan's Visconti and Verona's Della Scala families. In 1815 it became part of the Austrian Empire (Trentino itself is still considered the Südtirol) and soon became a holiday resort for the Archduke and the northern European intelligentsia. Stendhal, Thomas Mann and Kafka all summered here, drawn by Goethe’s evocative descriptions in his 1786 bestseller, Italian Journeys.
Poets and politicians, divas and dictators, they've all been drawn to captivating Lake Garda (Lago di Garda). In fact, 7% of all tourists to Italy head for the lake’s shores, taking to its wind-ruffled waters in the north and village- and vineyard-hopping in the south. Surrounded by three distinct regions – Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige and the Veneto – the lake’s cultural diversity attracts a cosmopolitan crowd. Mittleeuropeans colonise northern resorts such as Riva del Garda and Torbole, where restaurants serve air-dried ham and Austrian-style carne salada (salted beef), while in the south, French and Italian families bed down in Valtenesi farmhouses and family-friendly spa towns such as Sirmione and Bardolino.
