The Bastion, Riva Del Garda
(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
A steep walk up to The Bastion rewards you with unbeatable views over the town. Built following the end of Venetian rule in the 16th century as protection for the town and its inhabitants, the building was later destroyed in 1703 by French troops. To reach the grey stone fortress, you'll have to climb uphill on narrow zig-zagging paths under the Italian sun for nearly an hour, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a supply of water to keep hydrated. Once you reach the fort, there is a small cafe to refuel. Savor the well-earned views before making the trek back down.

  • Bastionilta avatuu Rivaan and Coast views of Lake Garda. If you are on your way to the hottest of the summer time, you should climb until later in the afternoon, when the Sun is already behind the mountains. The walkway is good and coated, but from now on will change to vaikeakulkuisemmaksi.
