  • View from the outside during Christmas is charming and impressive with all those lights. Hosts the Santa Claus House and opposite there are various kiosks and street markets. We have seen it at night, you probably visit in another period.

  • We cannot make a judgment on the whole Castle as we visited, but we were here for the Santa Claus House on opening day. Paid well run attraction for kids under 10 years with laboratories, scenes and characters really cute. Our baby daughter enoyed. Commendable Claus sympathy despite the crush of screaming children proved helpful and available to more than a photograph. On the building if we can only say that the property is well maintained.

  • The Rocca is the remains of an Austrian castle. It houses the museum of Riva with some interesting artefacts and various local.paintings. it's situated in a small park surrounded by a canal. Many people head to.the Rocca thinking they can get to the beach. They don't.do many useful tourist signs here. It's worth climbing to.top.floor to.see the views . There is a lift to the other.floors..I don't think. There's a public toilet or a café..shame.
  • It does have a beautiful view of the lake but it was absolutely packed with tourists and the restaurants were pricy in the area.
  • Nice town. Cooling winds!
  • Great place for a coffee
  • very nice view!
