Second visit in 9 months, a bargain attraction especially if you’re 65+ (€1). The climb is worth every penny just for the extensive views across the town, into the mountains & down Lake Garda.

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.

This is the focal point of Riva, a large stone clock tower. On of the high points of Riva, it is almost impossible to visit Riva without either seeing it from afar or stumble upon it on your wondering around.

Beautiful stone clock tower adorns the adjoining plaza. The ability to construct these structures so long ago is simply amazing.

The Apponale Tower stands out from the colorful buildings surrounding the square. It makes a nice backdrop for a sit down with a gelato in the sunshine. From top you will get a nice panoramic view over Riva and the lake.
