The north end of Lake Garda is incredibly beautiful and yesterday I explored more of Riva del Garda and walked up to amazingly located Arco Castle.
We began the day with a high speed drive down into Italy and eventually to Trento where we turned off onto a lovely road that took us to Arco, on this road we discovered a really nice cafe with a wonderful terrace overlooking a lake. On our arrival at Arco Castle we explored the town and then walked the 20 minutes uphill to reach the castle, it was pretty steep and in hot weather it could be a real challenge, however we found a lovely viewpoint just 5 minutes up that give great views over Arco town. If time can be found and you are fit enough reaching the castle offers great views and photographs! Next we drove the 15 minutes to Riva Del Garda and walked around the town and along the lakefront, without doubt I am sure everyone will love this stunning town!
