  • I just love sitting in one of the many cafe bars along Riva with a pint of cold beer, tea, coffee, and just soaking up the sun, and people watching as they promenade up & down this fantastic pedestria...  more »
  • Spend your time walking around and enjoying the amazing views of the ocean and its little marina just on one of the sides.  more »
  • In fact, I prefer to refer to this location as Riva Street or Riva Promenade. In this sense it is a pleasant place-full of people and of bars and restaurants. Great to get a drink or a coffee admiring the sea or simply watching the movement of the port and of people. I thought it was strange the fact during the day always be crowded and at night around 8:00 of the night, it was already almost completely empty and several restaurants and cafes have closed. Attraction/hotspot.

  • Place which is part of the palace, you can observe historical value and take a drink&meal,ice cream, relaxing on the bench or walk alongside the sea.
  • One of the most beautiful places I've been to, with a stunning seaside view and many cafe's and shops
  • very beautiful riva, lots of caffes, restaurants and shops. Nice music concerts and great view
  • The best place to drink coffee between September and May. In summer time is very hot to seat over there.
  • One of the most beautiful places in the most beautiful city in the world.
