Arco is a delightful town just a few kilometrs from Riva. We spent a few hours here, having stopped off at the Cascata Varone first and before heading onto Trento. It was a lovely day out altogether and the first full day of an unforgettable week in this area of Lake Garda and Trentino-Alto Adige region.
We took the walk up to the castle - a lovely winding path through olive groves and strewn with poppies for our visit in May - lovely balacony views over the town, worth the hike just for this.
The town of Arco itself is a historic market town with pleasant squares, frescoed buildings and cafes to enjoy
