May 29, 2019 - Day 15 - Riva del Garda

Day 15 - Wednesday 29 May 19 - Riva Del Garda We were late rising to a dry, overcast day that needed a light weight jumper. Breakfast in the hotel was relaxed and the food choice possibly the best so far. My initial reservations of Hotel Luise which promotes it’s moto “ Travel is my real job” are starting to dissipate; it really offers good facilities although I still reserve my opinion on the rooms. We completed breakfast and were away on our 3.6km walk into the nearby village of Torbole at 1000hrs. We initially followed the line of the...

May 28, 2019 - Day 14 - Riva del Garda

Day 14 - Tuesday 28 May 19 - Riva del Garda The overcast sky and the drizzle of the last few days were still with us as we left for Bolzano. Breakfast at the Angelo Engel had been another pleasant experience as was dinner last night.

The widest part, in the south, lies in the Venetian Plains. We headed to the head of the lake, in the north, to Riva Del Garda residing under one of the peaks. The Venetian Plain is one of the main breadbaskets of Italy....

Jun 19, 2006 - Lake Garda - Riva del Garda

Hooray - I am at Lake Garda and have caught up with Austin. Won't go into the details about how I actually got here a day late (I was totally oblivious to the date stuff up) and he was getting really worried. Anyway, there is champagne cooling in the room and tons of fruit when I arrive ! The hotel is excellent, has great views of the terraced valley, fields amd olive terraces and is set back from the main street. I love the pool and the gazebo which we make our own. Riva has a real holiday atmosphere and is definitely a place I am coming...
