Highlights

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.

Overview

Your run will show you the Garda Trentino from a new perspective: past the traditional and historical centre of Arco, along the Sarca River, you will run down to the beach and from there up to the finish.
