This area is a super area for relaxing over a cool drink with loved ones and people watch. There is always something going on in the square next to the harbour.

I didn't want to climb all the stairs as I have some mobility difficulty. I was persuaded to give it a go, and, thankfully, made it to the top. The views are wonderful and give a different prospective to Riva.

Yes, there were a lot of steps for us oldies but we made it to the top and the panoramic view was worth it. It's a lovely tower and the main landmark of Riva del Garda, so is something worth doing if the knee joints...More
